Call screening is the process of evaluating the characteristics of a telephone call before deciding how or whether to answer it.[1]

Some methods may include:

In addition, in the US and Canada, Call Screen is the name of a calling feature offered by the telephone companies that allows a customer to establish a list of numbers; anyone calling the customer from those numbers will receive an automatic message indicating that the call is not being accepted.
