Use Begone to block any unsolicited or spam call easily. Block number ranges to get rid of spammers.

Begone is a productivity app for iOS 15 or later. It lets you block individual numbers or number ranges quickly and effortlessly. It can also act as a private directory for people or companies that you don’t want to add to your contacts but want to identify when called by.

Begone uses a simple wildcard character mechanism to add numbers into its database. You can use the # character as the wildcard. For example, when you enter +1 212-555-#### to its block list, Begone blocks the numbers from +1 212-555-0000 to +1 212-555-9999. This way, you can immediately block tens of thousands of numbers with one simple entry.

If you enter a number or number range to the directory list of Begone, the title you enter will be displayed as the Caller ID of a matching number when you receive a call. This way, you can remember who the number belongs to, without ever adding it to your contacts.

You can easily import and export your configuration with a single tap. Then, you can share your lists with friends and family.

Features of Begone:

• Easy to use interface to add number ranges quickly and effortlessly.
• Blocked, allowed and directory lists to manage any caller number
• Ability to call numbers not added as number ranges
• Easy import and export for list configuration
• Detailed VoiceOver design for better accessibility support
• Dark mode support
• Interoperability with Junkman - Smart SMS Spam Filter

Begone must be enabled as a call directory extension filter under Settings -> Phone -> Call Blocking & Identification in order to start blocking or identifying calls.


Begone works completely locally on your device. It does not collect or transmit any data you enter into it. Begone respects the privacy of its users with utmost importance.

Almost perfect

We need a search option please
And iCloud backup
The app is perfect other than that

Developer Response ,

Hi, thank you for your review. You can easily export your configuration to save for future uses with one tap. I am unable to add an iCloud backup option as the API to block numbers is very fragile. That’s why I decided to have the user do everything manually. I’ll work on the search option though.
