More than a year ago, Verizon's wireless customers who subscribed to the Call Filter service (previously known as "Caller Name ID") received call and spam screening capabilities for free. Now, the carrier is ready to improve the security of all its customers and will introduce spam and robocalling protection at no additional charge starting in March.

Verizon has unveiled some interesting facts in its official press release. Here are the essentials:

  • the carrier has identified almost 300 million numbers associated with spam and robocalling so far
  • the new security features will be available to all customers with devices that support them, including iOS and Android smartphones
  • existing Verizon customers with Caller ID served over fiber or copper receive the Spam Alerts service for free (the service alerted customers to almost 1 billion robocalls since its launch last year)

All in all, this looks like an excellent addition to the features that Verizon is providing to its customers. If you are a Verizon customer, please let us know what you think about this piece of news. If you are not a Verizon customer yet or switched to another carrier in the past, would this be enough to make you come back?

In my early school days, I hated writing and having to make up stories. A decade later, I started to enjoy it. Since then, I published a few offline articles and then I moved to the online space, where I contributed to major websites that are still present online as of 2021 such as Softpedia, Brothersoft, Download3000, but I also wrote for multiple blogs that have disappeared over the years. I've been riding with the Notebookcheck crew since 2013 and I am not planning to leave it anytime soon. In love with good mechanical keyboards, vinyl and tape sound, but also smartphones, streaming services, and digital art.
