How to Block Texts and Calls on Android Samsung

Blocking texts and phone calls is always a challenge for parents. There are many reasons where parents may want to limit or completely disable texting or calling. Apple does not provide a process to block either, although we do show parents how they can mirror iMessages in this blog. However, for parents who have Samsung smartphones and tablets, they have more options when using Netsanity. Here is how to block texts on Android devices.

Why consider blocking SMS & Calls?

There are are many reasons to block Texts(SMS) and Calls. Some are obvious, like overusing the texting plan, or texting during bedtimes. However, sometimes kids can be targeted by inappropriate parties or spam. Many texts can contain links to viruses, and porn. Sometimes, parents see inappropriate communication with certain “friends”, which they feel they may want their kids to avoid. Even though traditional calling is becoming less and less prevalent among kids and teens, it is still a way to reach out and parents may want options to curtail calling all together or selectively.
