The best one that I've used and the most effective one at that, is Root Call Blocker Pro (RCB) — it works only on devices that are rooted and running the latest SuperSU.

 

Root Call Blocker Pro (RCB) is a bit picky and may not work on all devices or ROMs — the second best call blocking app. is Extreme Call Blocker.

I ask for this because i heard bad things about Trucaller ID. Do not know if it is true or false.

Why Truecaller ID ask for my mobile number when i install it ?

Is Trucaller ID a reliable app con concerning security and privacy ?

Thank you for your advices.

Truecaller (just like WhatsApp) allots a unique registration ID to your account which is hardwired to your mobile number.

Nope, Truecaller breaches one's privacy by making all phone contacts public on it's database (if it's allowed to) — it's also not the best call blocker . . . . . . . however, it's the best caller ID which identifies the identity of many unknown callers (thanks to it's large database through invasion of our privacy.)
