Hiya, the company whose algorithms support AT&T's Call Protect, recently issued a robocall report, which shows that robocalls grew to 25.3 billion in the first half of 2019, up 128% compared to the same period a year ago and almost reaching the 26.3 billion robocalls Americans received in all of 2019. As spam services use STIR/SHAKEN in the background, more illegal calls will be caught.
In a statement, Joan Marsh, AT&T's executive vice president of regulatory & state external affairs said the FCC has been a "tremendous partner in the war on robocalls". "AT&T remains committed to working with our government and industry partners in the ongoing battle against unwanted and illegal robocalls".
AT&T announced today that they plan to add automatic fraud call blocking and suspected spam-call alerts to their customers' accounts. Now, AT&T customers will only have to opt out via their account settings if they don't wish to have calls blocked. Keep in mind that you can already download AT&T Call Protect as an app if you don't want to wait, or you can enable the service by going into your account settings on myAT&T and turning it on.
Other carriers offer similar options, though AT&T is so far the only to automatically block calls, CNN reported. The number of unwanted robocalls skyrocketed 46% from 2017 to 2018, according to caller ID service Hiya. AT&T says it identifies fraud and spam calls "through data analytics and network blocking, as well as reports from customers".
