    How to block a specific phone number or all unknown numbers on your Xiaomi Mi 11 phone. It is easy to block a number on your Xiaomi Mi 11. You can block all unknown or private numbers and add specific phone numbers to the blocked numbers list on your Xiaomi Mi 11 phone.


    To block a phone number on your Xiaomi Mi 11, open the Settings menu in the Phone app and choose the Block numbers option. To make it easier to enter numbers, you can copy phone numbers from the recent calls list in the Phone app and paste them into the Block numbers list.



    Your Xiaomi Mi 11 makes it easy to block the phone numbers of strangers, individuals or specific contacts. You can block all calls from unknown numbers and also block specific numbers, let's see how.

    How to block a number on Xiaomi Mi 11 via the Phone app

    Xiaomi Mi 11 like any other Android-based model has a "Phone" app. It allows not only to make phone calls, but also to block spam and unknown numbers. To add a contact to the blacklist follow the instructions:


    1. Open the "Phone" app.
    2. Go to the contact list.
    3. Open the contact.
    4. Click on the button, which looks like three dots and select «Add to blacklist».

    After completing and confirming these steps, you will no longer see the caller name on the device screen. If the contact is not in your address book, they can be blacklisted via the call logs.

    How to blacklist a number via third-party apps

    The problem of unwanted calls bothers not only the creator of the Xiaomi Mi 11, but also the third-party developers. They have prepared many apps with a blacklist function, which works like a regular dialer.



    Then, you can use the "Call Blocker" app. It is available on Google Play and suggests the whole range of opportunities to get rid of annoying contacts. You can add the number to the blacklist via the call log or by entering contact information.


    Also, there are other similar programs. For example, «Call control». It looks different but has the same "Call Blocking" features, so you won't have a problem with it.

    Block numbers in messaging apps

    Even if you have blocked a person using one of the above ways, they have the opportunity to talk to you in other ways. For example on WhatsApp, Telegram or Viber if the messenger is connected to the same number.

    The way out of the situation is simple: blocking numbers in messaging apps. To do this, click on the appropriate button in the chat with an unwanted member. Appears when you receive the first message from the person. If the "Lock" function does not appear on the screen, press the button, which looks like three dots, and select the similar item.


    This option works the same way in other messengers like Whatsapp, Telegram or Viber. Each application has its own blacklist with the help of which annoying callers are blocked.

    How to block private number on Xiaomi Mi 11

    Sometimes people call you from anonymous numbers. Then «Unknown» appears in the name field and blocking with the standard modes becomes impossible. In a similar situation, you need to find an additional option that may have been added to the firmware version of your Xiaomi Mi 11:


    1. Open the settings on your device.
    2. Go to the app list.
    3. Select "Calls" or "Phones" (the program name may differ depending on the version of the operating system).
    4. Go to «Antispam» and then to «Block calls».
    5. Set "Block calls from strangers" and "Block calls from hidden numbers" to the active position.

    As you do the last step, don't confuse these options. The first blocks incoming calls from any person who is not included in the contact list, and the second - only from hidden numbers.
