As of today, the Truecaller caller ID app allows users to block specific series of numbers, regions, or even entire countries.
The company believes this will be a counter to “One Ring Scams,” a phishing trap that call centers commonly use.
Here’s a list of some of Truecaller’s other features:
- The spammer list is updated every day in order to protect users better
- Silencing unwanted calls
- Spammer reporting: this can be done from the call log or after calls
- An updated UI of the ‘Block’ section
