What is this app for?? 1/5
Is this app suppose to protect?? I still get spam numbers constantly, I always have to manually report and block instead of the app detecting and blocking as it was intended to do so. This app needs major improvements
Stopped working 1/5
By The Bergster
Used to kinda work... now doesn’t recognize my Account.
Piece of sh** 1/5
It blocked the calls (4 times) from number in my phone’s contact list and also is a number from my family plan. My phone number and the blocked phone number, both are AT&T cell numbers.
Better than nothing 1/5
By rock drive way
Working on less than 10% of bogus calls.
Poor filter 1/5
By CA Ray O'Sunshine
Does not catch any of the Spam calls I receive daily
Only Marginally useful 2/5
Doesn’t help with spammers that rotate or randomize their numbers. Has blocked some calls, but only about 25% of them, to my reckoning. Really wish phone companies would put some security into their systems to prevent this from happening.
Not a deal 1/5
By Mel Irish
Should be a free service. Miss 90% of spam/scam calls. Needs Improvement!!
Not worth the money!!
Not blocking ads and spam calls 1/5
Unsatisfied due to fake AT&T fraudulent calls or spammers. That is what I took this service for.
Protecting what 1/5
Not sure what this app is protecting. In the past 3 hours, I have received 6 telemarketing calls. I am not too impressed with this app
Can’t block Unknown callers 2/5
Was much better after registration fixes, but now “unknown” callers get right through. These are the first types of calls that should be completely blockable. Sadly, no.
I hope 5/5
So far so good. Does what I need I hope. I am using only the free version for now.
Good as far as it goes 2/5
Notifies you in the caller ID display when a call is from a telemarketer, political organization, or is a reported spam/fraud risk. Also allows you to flag numbers as such. Allows you to auto-block fraudsters, but your phone will still ring all day long with telemarketers and political calls, unless you pay AT&T an extortionate $3.99/mo for Call Protect “PLUS”. Nobody wants these calls, and we know you have the technology to stop them! Now I feel like my phone is being held for ransom by the mob.
I have my doubts if this will work! 2/5
I have been putting up with these calls for about 2 yrs now. These telemarketing companies have about 200-300 extensions at each location. When they call and believe me u will know if it is one before u answer because it will say on your phone identifier “United States”; no name available or some other name u know is not identifiable. What AT&T needs to do is Monitor these calls and inform them of harassment charges that can be brought against them if they continue this unwanted activity. I have over 2000 phone #’s in my block phone # list on my phone. Sometimes I receive 4 to 5 of these phone calls each day. If they tell u to select item 2 to be put on there “do not call list” do not think they will not call u again. And if u block that call they will just call u on one of the other 200 lines the have at the call center. [email protected]
must take a more aggressive approach to this “big” problem!!i I can block these #’s on my iPhone without this app. I seem to be duplicating my efforts to stop these harassing calls. What can AT&T do to stop this???
Does not work calling has to stop this app does nothing sick off it.
Finally some relief! 5/5
I have been subjected to spam calls from various companies for years - having the same number for well over a decade. The worst of which is “US Pharmacy” calling from Pakistan through a variety of US random numbers. This app has brought 2-5 calls a day down to 2-3 calls a week like this. It’s a God-send, and I thank the developers for their great work!
Best App for Scam Alert 5/5
Makes it easy to report and block calls. Alerts you to the call being reported as a scam risk.
Needs an ability to wildcard or provide text block list 2/5
I get 5 to 10 spam calls a day to offer me health care programs. These use a range of numbers so blocking just one is of no help. I need the ability to block a range of numbers with a text file entry or wildcard or range of numbers. This app has only flagged a few percent of the problem calls.
What’s the point 1/5
It just lets you know you are getting harassed but doesn’t stop it. I already know 99.99999% of the calls on my phone not from a contact are bs. Stop these telemarketers!!!!!
Should be free for ATT customers 4/5
Very good app but should be free for att customers. This spam problem is so big. Carries should be solving the problem not charging us to block calls. How it works: If you download it and use it for free you have to manual block calls. If you pay $3.99 a month it autoblocks 80-90% of calls. One BIG feature missing in my opinion is the ability to block call ranges. Meaning spammers use the first three numbers of your phone number to try and get you to answer it. I feel like I should have an option to block all numbers with same 3 numbers mine starts with.
AT&T Got Something Right?!?? 5/5
I have service with other providers but ATT is the only one with meaningful spam call protection. Verizon appears to be too much in love with the revenue from spammers to provide any sort of meaningful protection to wireless consumers. I tried Hiya’s app on my Verizon phone and it was much dumbed down from the ATT branded version. Who would have ever expected excellence from ATT?
Call protection 5/5
Very good app !
Call Protect 2/5
I don’t think it works. It doesn’t block any spam or robo calls. I already changed my phone number once and it’s started all over again.
I wish it was blocking more calls
Doesn’t Warn Incoming Calls Ever! 1/5
I get no warning of incoming calls that are spam, telemarking, or any other warnings. I have to report what type of call I’ve received (general spam, type in a description of what they said, & then they ask if I want to block or report the number! This is a blocking service?
One time, I was called over 20 times in less than 2 minutes! They speed dialed me over & over before I finally added them as a contact, then blocked them myself since this is only a 90 day block, not permanent. I looked at the call history & I’d received several calls within a short period for a couple days prior to this “call blitz”.
This is not a “call protecting service”. It’s a reporting service & idek who or what is been reported or to whom. It'd be nice if it was at least sent to the DNC registry. I’ve finally given up after being hung up on -again - for asking to be placed on THEIR DNC list because I recognized the number & when I looked it up I was asked to report it -again!
Don’t bother with this useless App. It’ll probably just make you mad.
Just another way for ATT to screw you 1/5
By Dave Zeltser
So they offer a free version, which doesn’t seem to do jack to filter out and flag all the spam callers, it only blocks the fraud category. Now for $3.99 a month they will allow you to filter anything other than ‘fraud’. What a joke! Everything is a profit center for these dirt bags at ATT.
Best app possible 5/5
DOES NOT WORK 1/5
I’ve gotten 10 robo calls in the last day, all of them with different numbers are robo calls. I’m an AT&T customer and this was suggested to me. I followed the instructions hoping it would work. Nothing happened, and robo calls get through without fail. I then report and block them in the app, but it doesn’t help. Fix this app and I’ll fix my review.
Not catching spam calls really 1/5
Still receive these calls from 858 area code multiple times a day:
Social Security Fraud attempt:
“This case just press one thank you this call is from the Department of Social Security administration the reason you have ___________________ call from our department is to inform you that we just suspend your Social Security number because we found some suspicious activity so if you want to know about this case just press one thank you…”
I get more spam calls now then I did before installing this app. And it has only flagged about 5% of the spam calls I receive. It amazes me that this app has this high of a rating!!!
By Tired of The Spam
Absolutely worthless!!! Hasn’t blocked or identified the first spam caller since I installed it. I’m still having to manually block and report my own spam callers. Only giving it one star because I can’t submit without giving it a star.
business man 2/5
this app does 15% of advertised. almost a waste of my time.
Gotta do all the work 2/5
By robo call hater
This app is no different than self blocking numbers. There is no smart tool here. If you get a telemarketing call you have to open the app and manually block the call. Then when they call again one digit different you get to do it all over again.
Kind of a half assed attempt 2/5
Works some of the time but not truly reliable. Good thing is the cost is low. If you expect a charge real money for this you need to make it a lot better and more affective program.
Thank goodness they are doing something. 4/5
I would give it a five star review if they identified the callers a little bit faster. However this app occasionally actually blocks a fraud call so it doesn’t even get through. It is not yet perfect but is much better than nothing. Thank you AT&T for making this effort to help your customers.
Call block 5/5
By check first
I like the fact that this app tells me who’s calling, before I answer.
Robo calls be gone 5/5
Can’t Believe after trying so many different apps for spam this one rocks. I can’t tell you how many calls it blocks and as you know they’re calling from all over Europe an the United States 24/7. So glad AT&T came up with a great app for those annoying spam n telemarketing calls!!
Does not block all telemarking calls they come through everyday, except Sunday. From 347 areas code and 718 area code.
Love it 5/5
It’s accurate and really works just using the free one it does it’s job I highly recommend
Not working as advertised 1/5
I still get spam calls
By Miss Kat K
Like that it tells you if it’s a telemarketer. But when I block numbers that leaves another telemarketing message it still allows callers to get through. I’ve gone into info on junk messages to block “new” callers only to find out they were already blocked so they shouldn’t have come through in the first place. Frustrating!
Good so far 5/5
Good so far
iOS sms activations get blocked. Kills iMessage and FaceTime! 1/5
When AutoBlock Fraud Risk is set to block (by default), Apple’s iMessage and FaceTime will not activate. Once that setting is set for Allow, then it activates fine... it seems that ATT is blocking the hidden SMS messages that activates iPhone services...
So far so good!!! 5/5
By Magnificent Marco
Blocks all the calls I want. FYI you gotta get the premium guys to block those telemarketer calls.
Don’t tell me block it 1/5
What good is it to notify me I got a bad car. When you’re supposed to block the car. Makes no sense
Call Log 3/5
you should be able to tell which numbers are blocked when you look at call log, the only ones that show blocked are the ones At&t blocked so I have go thru each one to make sure it is blocked!!! my blocked calls are about 98% of my calls😡
Slow, keeps asking for app rating 1/5
Is not blocking spam calls 2/5
I am receiving the same number of
It doesn’t work 1/5
By Adel Emm
It doesn’t do anything. I should still go into the app and manually block the unknown number
Does not work very well 1/5
By John Keoni
I get a lot of robo calls and scam calls that are not identified with this app. Not sure what good this app does.
