App for blocking call center and “nuisances”
Your nightmare is the advertising you receive calls from call centers and other “nuisances” that try to sell any type of product or service? There are some apps that are right for you. This is app is completely free, once installed on the mobile block all calls from the “bores” known, that is, all those call centers, telemarketers and fraudsters who have been publicly recognized as “harmful” and therefore were included in the public database (which is updated constantly thanks to contributions from users). There are at least a couple of app of its kind that is worth trying, not simultaneously please!
- Should I Respond – this is a great free app for Android that allows you to lock the numbers of “nuisances” known, user-chosen unwanted numbers and private numbers. To use it, you must install it on your smartphone, select the offers located at the top and choose which calls to be notified (I advise you to leave to ON settings Negative Neutral Positive and unknown ). Subsequently, to activate call barring, you have to go on the Blocking and activate the lock for local numbers negatively assessed and evaluated negatively by the community numbers .
- TrueCaller – is another application that allows you to block calls of “nuisances” drawing from a public database constantly updated thanks to contributions from its users. It is very effective, but unfortunately for use it is necessary to create a free account and, above all, we must accept the sharing of your mobile phone number on the site TrueCaller. For the rest there is not much to say. To use the app you have to do is install it, verify your number, create your account and make sure that the call blocking function is active (in the Unwanted of the app).
