If you want to block text messages on your iPhone 11, you have several options. This feature lets you block only messages from known senders. You can also report iMessages as spam and filter out unwanted ones. Depending on your preferences, you can even turn off alerts so that you are not alerted about unsolicited messages.
Unknown senders won’t be blocked
Unknown senders are not blocked by default on the iPhone 11. However, the new iPhone offers a few features that can help you keep unwanted spam messages at bay. These features include automatic blocking of unknown senders and the option to filter messages by sender. You can find this option in the Settings menu, on the upper-left corner. Once in this screen, select Messages and then tap Filter Unknown Senders.
If you’d rather not receive these messages from unknown senders, you can report them by tapping the flag icon. It will then show the number and contact and allow you to block them from sending you messages in the future. This is great news if you’re concerned about spam or junk. You can also block specific unknown senders with the help of the Block this Caller option, which is located in the Settings app.
If you’re concerned about spam, it can make it difficult to make calls or send texts to you. Apple Mail, the default message app on your iPhone, filters spam messages sent by Unknown Senders. You can block the senders of specific calls or messages, or block them all. However, this may cause your phone to miss some calls. So, you should save your contacts before you block them.
You can filter unknown senders in the Settings app, or in the Messages app. If you receive an unknown sender, their messages will appear in the Unknown Senders tab. You can also report them to Apple, which will then delete their iMessage automatically.
Reporting spam iMessages
If you’ve received spam iMessages on your iPhone, the most effective way to block them is to report them to Apple’s spam filter. This way, they’ll be deleted from your device and you can prevent future messages from coming from the same number. You can also block the sender to stop them from sending you any more messages.
While there are several ways to report spam text messages, the iPhone 11 has an additional feature that allows you to filter individual numbers. Blocking individual numbers is not a very effective solution, because spammers can still send messages from other numbers. The ‘Report Junk’ link under each suspicious text message can also be useful.
To report spam messages on iPhone 11, you can go into Settings, then tap Message Filtering. Toggle “Filter Unknown Senders” to block messages from unknown senders. You can also go into Messages to see the messages you’d like to report. When you see the spam message, tap the arrow icon on the bottom right. Apple will then receive information about the message, including the sender. Once Apple receives the information, you’ll receive an acknowledgement message.
Reporting spam text messages on iPhone 11 has become easier than ever. You can find the feature on the third page of your settings menu. You just have to scroll down three pages to access it. After you have done that, you can turn off the notifications of scam texts and file them accordingly.
Filtering out unwanted iMessages
Filtering out unwanted iMessages in the Messages app on your iPhone is as easy as turning on the unknown sender filter. You can do this by going to Settings > Messages > Unknown Senders. This filter will automatically sort any message from unknown senders into the ‘Unknown Senders’ list. You can also report unknown senders to Apple and have the iMessage automatically deleted.
Messages can also be reported to Apple as spam or junk. Once you report a message, a new link will appear below it. Tap it. You will receive a report junk message button that will block the number from sending messages to you and other users.
Another option is to turn off the notifications for unknown senders. This is very useful for catching scam texts. However, it is time-consuming if you have a cluttered inbox. You can also filter unwanted iMessages by turning off notifications. However, if you are worried about the security of your iPhone, you can also install a third-party program to protect yourself from spam messages. It is a subscription-based app but it is very valuable.
You can also block certain numbers that send spam texts. This is a last ditch effort to curb the flood of unwanted texts. To do this, you must first open a spam text message, tap the phone number on the top, then tap on the ‘Info’ button. From there, select the Block Contact option. Some messages may also have a ‘Report Junk’link under them. You can also forward a suspicious text message to the Federal Trade Commission’s 7726 (SPAM) hotline.
Turning off alerts
If you’ve found it annoying to receive alerts on your iPhone 11 for text messages, there are options you can turn off. First, you can turn off notifications on your Lock Screen. You can also turn off notifications as banners that appear in the upper-right corner of apps. This way, you won’t receive notifications every time you open an app, but you’ll still be aware of new messages.
You may also notice that third-party apps do not send alert sounds. To turn off the alert sound on these third-party apps, you must enable the Sound toggle. To do this, open the Settings app and tap Notifications. Then, tap the toggle next to “Sounds and Badges” in the Notifications section. If the alert sound still does not go away, you may need to update your app. To do this, open the App Store and tap Update.
If you’d like to disable the alerts on iPhone 11 for other apps, go to Settings > Notifications > Messages. You can change the notification frequency and style. You can also customize the alert sound. Apple automatically sets alerts to repeat every two minutes and once, but you can change this.
You can also disable text message alerts for a particular person. If you find that you receive a lot of notifications for a certain person, you can mute their alerts and still get alerts for important texts. The process is very simple and can be done with just a few clicks.
For some users, the only way to completely turn off the alerts for a particular contact is to turn on Do Not Disturb (DND). This option will prevent the alerts for specific contacts. You can also scroll through your messages and check for the crescent moon icon that indicates that the contact is in DND mode. Unfortunately, this feature does not appear on every contact.
Setting up SMS spam blocking
You may not be sure how to set up SMS spam blocking on iPhone 11, but there are some easy steps you can take to prevent unsolicited text messages. The first step involves blocking unauthorized senders from sending messages to your phone. You can also block certain numbers. Fortunately, most phones come with a default setting that allows you to block unknown senders.
To block SMS messages from a specific number, you can use the phone’s spam filtering features. Blocking individual numbers won’t have much effect, however, since spammers can use different phone numbers. You can also block group messages sent by spammers. These messages will be blocked, and you can report them to your phone service provider.
Next, you need to add contact numbers that you know. To do this, go to the Messages section of your phone’s Settings. Then, select the Message Filtering tab. From there, you can choose to block unknown numbers. This way, you won’t receive spam messages from unknown numbers. Lastly, try not to reply to messages from spammers. Replying to these messages will only give the spammers your phone number, and they may use it to send you even more spam messages. Furthermore, clicking on the links in the text messages can make your phone run slower.
Blocking unwanted texts is easy to do and reduces your exposure to spammers. There are built-in and third-party apps that you can download to block incoming spam messages. You can also report scam texts by manually reporting them.
