How to stop robocalls on your iPhone.

As I'm sure you've noticed the number of automated “robocalls” you receive has started to increase, it's not just your imagination. We know from the communications firm First Orion that in 2017, only 3.7% of all calls were automated spam calls, by 2018 automated calls were up to 29.2%. By 2019, nearly half of all calls will be robocalls, this particular problem is increasing at an alarming rate so we're going to show you a few ways to stop it from interrupting your day. 

Do Not Call Registry. 

Your first stop should be the Do Not Call Registry, this is managed by the FTC (Federal Trade Commission) and every company is obligated to avoid any number that's on the list. This may not stop certain immoral companies from calling you such as overseas calling centers or scammers, but it will help reduce the number of calls you receive. 

After adding your number to the registry it takes about a month before it goes into effect. (Charities and other nonprofits are still free to contact you)

Use an app to help identify and screen spam calls. 

Another great way to reduce these calls is by using an app or service provided by your iPhones service provider. T-Mobile, AT&T, and Verizon offer these services:

Verizon Call Filter

T-Mobile Scam Block

AT&T Call Protect

Silence Unknown Callers

This is a feature introduced by Apple to combat the rising number of scam calls the average iPhone user receives. After activating this feature any person or company that's not saved in your iPhones contacts will automatically be sent to your voicemail, it will continue to ring normally on their end but you won't see the call until you check your recent call history. 

How to stop Robocalls on your iPhone.

Here's how to enable this feature:

  1. Open the Settings app on your iPhone
  2. Tap Phone
  3. Scroll down a bit until you see “Silence Unknown Callers” and toggle it on.
