Avoiding spam calls will free us from numerous annoying moments. And doing it is very simple, since we have many applications at our disposal for it. Here we recommend some of the best..

It doesn't fail. It's lunch time (or worse, dinner) and our cell phone starts to ring. We look and we don't know the number . It is a commercial call that we do not want to answer but, since we are not entirely sure about it, we do.

To detect spam calls and scams we can use some useful apps that we can find in the Android Play Store. These are some of the best :

The app has an updated list of suspected  spam numbers that is continually renewed thanks to the users themselves. Thus, once we grant numerous permissions, and according to the user's assessment, we can detect whether or not it is worth taking the call. Truecaller can be downloaded from this link..

Whoscall

His name literally means "who calls". Identifies calls made by both people and bots . It also has a spam phone search engine . In any case, you can block those numbers so that they never call us again. It works without internet and we can download it for free here.

Who's Calling

This tool has the peculiarity that it can connect with our WhatsApp and Facebook Messenger, so it will also filter the calls that we receive from these applications. In addition, it tells us by voice who is calling, so you won't have to have your mobile nearby. It is free and you can enter this link to download it..

How to block 'spam' numbers from Android

In the Android call application, most phones with this operating system have their own tools to block numbers of dubious origin. To do this, we just have to perform the following steps. We have to remember that this tutorial may vary depending on the customization layer that we have pre-installed on the mobile.

  • We enter the phone app and go to the call history.
  • We go to the number we want to add to the blacklist
  • Click next to the number. There should be some kind of signal, like an admiration. If there isn't, press continuously on that number.
  • On the next screen, there are three options. We must choose the second one, 'Add to the blocked list' or 'Block/mark as spam '.

Join the Robinson list

Another way to prevent commercial numbers from calling us, although not infallible, is to sign up for the so-called 'Robinson List'. It is a free advertising opt-out service available to consumers to prevent them from receiving unwanted commercial messages, calls or advertisements. Thanks to it we will be able to avoid the advertising of companies to which we have not given our express permission.
