FCC approved ruling to allow robocall blocking by default

The FCC today voted to allow voice service providers to block robocalls by default based upon reasonable call analytics. Consumers could request to opt out of default robocall blocking. By allowing default opt-in, blocking programs could be applied to more calls to more consumers, reducing their exposure to unwanted robocalls.

The ruling also allows voice service providers to offer a more stringent form of call blocking that would only allow calls from calling numbers that appear in their contacts or some other form of whitelist. Such programs would require consumers to opt in.
