Verinson's Spam-Blocking Call Filter is now free

Robocalls are annoying as hell, and it seems that the problem just gets worse. But if you are at Verizon, you can get a new way to block them with the company's Call Filter app, which recently became free to all Verizon customers.

Previously, the service created to detect and help cut down on phone spam was required a $ 2.99 monthly fee. But this week, Verizon shared the service in two tiers: A free tier that discovers spam, filters out robokals and reports disruptive numbers to the carrier, and a new $ 2.99 plan that adds to extras such as call ID, personal spam, block lists and even a risk meter that attempts to evaluate potentially harmful conversations.

Also to help you cut down on robocalls even further, Verizon says its rollouts of Call Filter through the use of its STIR / SHAKEN technology, which can detect when spammers spoofer legitimate phone numbers to bypass traditional blocking techniques.

Here's a chart made by Verizon that illustrates the difference between Call Filters free features and what you get for another $ 3 a month.

But if you are considering buying paid tier for Call Filter, I would recommend keeping off unless robocalls have really become an infinite source of frustration. The reason is that many of the Call Filter paid features such as call ID and the ability to add numbers to a personal block list are features that are already built into a large number of phones, while others like the risk meter are already available on selected phones like Pixel 3, which flashes warning messages that say "Spam Likely" when they meet potential robococks.

If you were wondering about the Call Filters two-star rating on the App Store, there seems to be a great reason why many of the previous lows were Verin's former $ 3 monthly fee, which the new free level of Call Filter should address.

For Verizon customers with iPhone, Call Filter is available as a download in the App Store. Meanwhile, for Android phone owners, Verizon Call Filter says has already been pre-installed on most devices. Unfortunately, if it is not preinstalled, it is not possible to download the app from the Google Play store simply.
