Tired of getting unwanted calls on your mobile phone? Here's what you can do about them. Your best option is a call blocking app. An app can stop scam calls before they get to you, silence calls from unknown numbers, or send suspicious calls straight to your voicemail. Some call blocking apps are free, some are not. 

Search your online app store and read the reviews. Also ask your carrier about call blocking services. 

You can also check your phone settings to find features like the do not disturb setting. Call blocking won't catch every unwanted call. Report unwanted calls to the FTC. Tell us the number on your caller ID, and any number you're told to call back. Learn more at ftc.gov/calls.
