Hello @XXXXtz,


We highly encourage you to give the Call Protect feature another look. It is specifically designed to block calls from likely scammers. These include numbers that aren't listed in your contacts, as it targets suspicious or unwanted calls. You can learn more about how to keep accounts/devices safe from fraud on our Fraud & Security Resources page. Please let us know if you need anything else.

You should read the post again.  What part of "block calls not in my contacts" did you not understand?  Your comments make me question your intelligence. 

 

Take a moment and try your own suggestion.   Let me know how well it works for you.  

 

Better yet.  Develop an app that blocks calls not listed in my contacts.  Spoofing numbers is now common and will only get worse.  If a third party provider can do it, so can you.  Unless you'll be cutting off the hand that feeds you.
