Is there an app where you can add contacts or numbers to a list and anyone on that list will have their text messages auto deleted when they try to send you a text? Preferably one that can have this list be password protected.

Why don't you just block them through your carrier? It'll save you the hassle (and SMS charges if you don't have a text plan). – Matthew Read Sep 6 '11 at 21:08
@MatthewRead blocking through your carrier is far from something you can expect in every country. In Sweden I know for a fact that several major carriers do not offer the service. – pzkpfw Feb 2 '13 at 11:39

You could use Sanity, which seems to have the feature you want (from app description):

  • block unwanted calls and SMS: automatically refuse incoming calls and SMS filtering out the phone number (include or exclude anonymous and/or unknown numbers, favourites, contacts and groups; enable the block by choosing date and time); advanced: choose between different block methods to confuse the caller!

i use Anti SMS Spam & Private Box. It can block messages from specified number/unknown number. Messages with specified word can also be filtered.

A link to the app would make this answer more useful. – bmdixon Mar 4 '14 at 11:37

You could try Call Blocker Gold, it seems to have the features you are looking for.

Call Blocker Gold would appear to be the replacement. – Al E. Sep 6 '11 at 18:55
I got Blacklist Pro which can block incoming calls and texts from certain numbers as well remove the notification of the calls/texts and deletes the logs of the calls and texts. It can also be password protected which is exactly what I was looking for. Now if there was only a way to password protect the uninstalling of it... – Meyer Denney Sep 6 '11 at 19:27
