Stalkers also try to harass women by calling them over and over. This can take a toll on a person's mental health. And while informing the authorities is always the most important thing to do, you should also block the number so they cannot continuously reach out to you and bother you.
So, if you want to learn this useful trick, you do not have to do much. It's very simple, really. Check the steps below.
How to block a number on iPhone
- Whether the person you're trying to block is added in your contacts or not, the method to block them is the same.
- First, open the Dialer app and go to the number's profile by clicking the ‘i' icon on the right.
- Then tap on the ‘Block this Caller' button which should pop up the ‘Block Contact' icon. Tap it to block the number.
- Do note that if you're blocking a contact with multiple numbers, then all of the numbers will get blocked.
How to check your blocked numbers and unblock them
Go to Phone, which should be in the fifth group of icons.
Scroll down to find ‘Blocked Contacts’.
You should be able to see all the numbers/contacts you have blocked. You can also add more by clicking ‘Add new’.
To remove someone from the block list, simply tap on ‘Edit’ on top right and press the unblock icon next to their name.
