AT&T strengthens robocall prevention

AT&T recently announced three new features to its Call Protect application. These enhancements give subscribers more options for preventing unwanted robocalls.

  1. Calls identified as Spam Risk can now be blocked automatically. The previous option, send to voicemail, is still available.
  2. Calls from a number not in your contact address book can be sent to voicemail automatically.
  3. You can use Siri voice commands to block calls and report spam from your iPhone.

AT&T offers two versions of Call Protect:

  • Free version provides automatic fraud blocking, spam risk blocking, unknown caller blocking and a personal block list.
  • Call Protect Plus adds caller ID display name, custom call controls, reverse number lookup, a secure wi-fi VPN, and a personal ID monitor to notify you if your personal information is found on the dark web.
