Truecaller Introduces Improved Spam Blocking Features

Exciting upgrades just hit the screens of Truecaller Android lovers! Truecaller has now improved the service to keep you safer when it comes to unwanted disturbances. The new block tab feature gives you extra control over how your phone reacts when you get an unwanted call, and it’s a much simpler way to reduce inbound spam.

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.

 So, what’s new?

One thought on “Truecaller Introduces Improved Spam Blocking Features

  1. Truecaller is a useful application. I always use it to block some numbers that belong to scammers. I sometimes found news, articles, or complaints about scammers at http://whycall.me, and they all put some numbers with their articles. With those information, I use Truecaller to block all the numbers that stated at those source, even before I got called. It really helpful, at least for me.
