No one likes to receive phone calls from unknown numbers and be interrupted in the middle of an important job or late in the evening. Unfortunately, with the increasing number of online purchases, it is almost impossible to keep your number secure. If you indicated it on any site when registering for a training or sent a loan application, it will be transferred from one company to another.
If you are tired of calls that are constantly trying to sell something or even worse – are threatened, then you will be helped by special applications that compare the caller’s number in their database and show all the information available on it. This will give you a better idea of whether to answer the call or not.
Truecaller is the most popular application that allows you to find out who is calling from an unknown number. It can also block unwanted calls, completely protecting you from unnecessary calls. If a blocked subscriber tries to call you, he will hear a busy tone.
CallApp allows you to identify unknown subscribers, block spam calls, record incoming and outgoing calls. In this case, the main function remains the definition of unknown numbers, so it is not surprising that blocking spam does not work very well.
