Hello @webdeveloper9333, we're happy to help with options to manage spam texts that are sent from your phone number.
This tactic to steal data or funds through texting has been dubbed "smishing." The term is a combination of the terms SMS, or short message service, and phishing, which is employed when scammers "fish" for your personal information via a fraudulent message.
Avoid installing the apps from unknown or unverified sources and follow these steps to manage spam texts using your phone number:
In addition, the AT&T ActiveArmor mobile security app scans your mobile device and all apps for malware. It looks for Trojans, worms, spyware, and other suspicious software. Mobile Security scans on demand and every time you download a new app. If you select Monitor File Settings, mobile security also constantly checks your files for anything suspicious like spam calls and texts.
