Blocking numbers from my kids phone


Blocking numbers from my kids phone

I have a few numbers that I need to have blocked from my child’s phone. She is 15 Going on 25. Lol. There are a few numbers that I need blocked from her phone, but she won’t leave them blocked. I have found that she goes in and unblocks them when I’m not around (when she’s at school or something). Is there a way to block these few numbers from calling anyone on my plan? I don’t want to talk to these kids and I don’t want my daughter talking to them either. The best idea I have is to block the numbers from the actual AT&T account (so they can’t call me, her, or my other daughter) but I cannot find out how to do so. Any ideas?

Hi, @Aimie702,


We'd love to help with this. AT&T does not currently have an app that will permit you to block numbers on your child's phone. We do have AT&T Secure Family that will permit you to control time online through their device and permit you to track their location through the phone.


There maybe a third party app that will aid you in this. Perhaps the community will have a few recommendations.


Have a great week!

Re: Blocking numbers from my kids phone

this is NOT a “problem solved.”  In fact, AT&T used to have a way online that you could block numbers from a certain phone.  It may have been a paid service.  But then you got rid of it, and now have this useless Call Protect and Secure Family.


not happy

I agree, ATT use to have Smart Limits that had the added feature of blocking numbers, not sure why they got rid of Smart Limits. And yes Call Protect is extremely useless.
