Learn about blocked numbers in group calls

Duo will alert you if:

  • Someone starts, or adds you to, a group call with someone you blocked. You can decline or answer the call.
  • You call a group that includes someone you blocked. You can choose to not start the call.

If you blocked someone, they can't add you to new groups, and you won't receive group call notifications from them.
