This guide applies to individuals who are using Microsoft Teams on any device, including desktop computers, laptops, and mobile devices. It is particularly useful for those who wish to avoid unwanted calls from specific numbers while using the Microsoft Teams platform.


Follow these simple steps to block an incoming number in Microsoft Teams:

  1. Open Microsoft Teams: Start by launching the Microsoft Teams application on your device.

  2. Go to Calls: On the left-hand side of the screen, you’ll see a panel with several options. Click on the ‘Calls’ button.

  3. Select History: After clicking on ‘Calls’, you’ll see a few tabs at the top of the screen. Click on the ‘History’ tab to view your call history.

  4. Find the Number: Scroll through your call history to find the number you want to block. Once you’ve found it, click on the number.

  5. Block the Number: After clicking on the number, a menu will appear on the right side of the screen. In this menu, you’ll see an option that says ‘Block’. Click on this option to block the number.

  6. Confirm Block: A pop-up window will appear asking you to confirm that you want to block the number. Click ‘Block’ to confirm.

And that’s it! You’ve successfully blocked an incoming number in Microsoft Teams. This number will no longer be able to contact you through the platform. If you ever want to unblock the number, you can follow these same steps and click ‘Unblock’ instead of ‘Block’.
