Block robocalls and other unwanted calls
Types of Robocalls
A positive robocall - These present no harm to subscribers; some of these robocalls may even be wanted/needed. Examples include public service announcements, appointment confirmations and prescription refills.
A nuisance robocall - These aren't indicative of malicious intent or illegal, but might be a call that I don’t want to answer all the time. Examples include promotional offers, solicitation, accounts receivable.
A high-risk robocall - These often include loss of money, invasion of privacy and identity theft. These callers are trying to gain a caller’s trust to prey on them. Examples include spammers, spoofers and scammers.
What can you do?
While there may not be a single answer that entirely ends
these activities, we're fully committed to fighting the scourge of robocalls.
What are we doing to address the robocalling problem?
We offer a free Advanced Call Treatment feature that identifies nuisance calls and automatically redirects the call to voicemail rather than ringing your phone. Legitimate callers will likely leave a voicemail for you to return their call.
We also provide a free Advice of Risk feature that identifies nuisance calls to you by leveraging the Caller Name field to overlay a warning that will alert you of a potential fraud, scam or spam call.
We use STIR/SHAKEN technology to update our spam detection algorithm. This is a caller ID authentication to help protect you against malicious caller ID information which is often used to trick consumers into answering their phones.
