Huawei P10 And P10 Plus: How To Block Calls

Blocking calls on your Huawei P10 and P10 Plus is both a matter of security and personal preferences. You might want to do it for your own sanity, in case someone is terrorizing you with unnecessary marketing calls. You might also want to do it to cut the ties with a particular person. From telemarketers to spammers, the people you don’t want to contact you shouldn’t be able to contact you. And luckily, you aren’t just as powerless as you are probably thinking right now.

First of all, Huawei P10 and P10 Plus offers you a so-called auto-reject list where you can add any contact that you want to block. You also have the option to block a particular caller. Last but not least, you can decide to automatically block all the calls coming from persons who deliberately blocked their own Caller IDs so you won’t be able to see the numbers that they are calling from.
