Partners phone number showing as medium risk in AT&T Call Protect

The phone number for my partner is showing up as a medium threat risk when he calls me. AT&T call protect says that there are 2 reports logged - probably inadvertent. I am concerned that he will be blocked when calling me.

Hey there @sadelste!


Allow us to assist with your contact experience with Call Protect.


It's possible to unblock a number that has been "recycled" or misreported.

  1. Open the app and go to the Block tab (it’s a red circle with a slash through it).
  2. Find and tap on the call that was blocked.
  3. Select Unblock.

We hope this info helps.
