Do you have specific Android phone contacts whose incoming alerts you’d like to keep private? Sometimes unwanted texts and calls show up and you’d rather screen such calls and keep the user conversations a secret. The following apps will successfully hide your calls and SMS logs on Android from specific contacts. Similarly, we cover how to block the text from chosen contacts on WhatsApp.

Hide Calls and SMS on Android from Specific Contacts

There are plenty of Android apps that hide your calls and SMS history. But if you want this feature for just a few specific contacts, we recommend Calculator Pro+, which helps save SMS/MMS/call logs behind a typical calculator screen. Download the app from Play Store to proceed.

To hide the calls and SMS, you need to enable the app’s access to phone contacts and storage. Click “Got it” to proceed. You have to give your acceptance to a privacy policy and install a related app called “AdvanceSMS” to monitor your SMS messages. You will be quickly guided through each step.

A four-digit pin will hide the contacts’ calls and SMS logs behind the calculator screen. Make sure to write down the PIN number. In case you forget the PIN, you will have to uninstall the app and start all over again.

Once the Message box screen shows, you can see an option to add contacts which will take you to your list of contacts. From there, you can choose the contacts you want to screen beforehand.

After you add a contact to the private database, you will receive an alert that all SMS belonging to the contact has been moved. This includes all the past SMS messages and call logs related to the contact. You can have a customized notification enabled for each contact so that you know it’s from them.

Calculator Pro+ has some advanced features, such as a virtual phone number purchase (in the Pro version), dark themes and an advanced setting where you can hide the app itself from your phone’s app menu. Once you’ve hidden the app, you can access it from the link given on the screen on any mobile browser.

Apart from Calculator Pro+, you can use another related app, TextU, which screens calls and SMS text for specific Android phone contacts.

Hiding WhatsApp Texts on Android from Specific Contacts

Many people use WhatsApp as an alternative to SMS messaging. To block the texts and calls on WhatsApp for specific contacts, you need to download an app called Chat Locker for WhatsApp. Once done, you will have to set up a passcode. You can also use a fingerprint locker from the app’s Settings.

To use this app in conjunction with WhatsApp, you need to give it permissions. On most Android phones, you can go to an “Accessibility” option in the phone’s Settings and turn the app on for accessing WhatsApp chat/group.
