Truecaller for Android Introduces Improved Spam Blocking Features
- The new and 'Advanced Block Feature' packs a powerful punch when personalizing how to be contacted. Want to block a whole country from calling you? Easy. How about a number from certain area code, or one that contains a certain series of numbers? Done!
- Now you can set your preference to block calls, either using Hang Up, which rejects them automatically, or you can set them to Mute, which lets them ring silently.
Scam calls have made U.S. headlines in the past due to scams like the ‘One Ring Scam,’ where many calls originate from an area code outside the U.S. Truecaller is able to help in these harmful situations by blocking whole area codes from contacting you, and preventing you from becoming a victim.
Call Centers all over the world are also notorious for cold calling from multiple numbers. This can be avoided if you are able to see a pattern in the number that is constantly harassing you. Simply use Truecaller’s advanced blocking system to add the number pattern to the blocked list.
Truecaller users are over 100 million strong, which is a lot of man power for reporting spammers from all around the world. Truecaller allows all users to block ‘Common Spammers’ that have been reported from their 100 million users. The list is updated every day to keep you protected.
By being an active member of the Truecaller Community coming, you are able to help each other avoid unwanted calls, and share information quickly that could help someone across the world avoid being targeted as the next victim of a spam, fraud or harassment call.
