Windows Phone 8.1 introduced the ability to have spam filtering apps for your phone calls and text messages, and Windows 10 Mobile went further with new APIs which made these apps more powerful.
This has allowed Whitepages Inc. to bring their Called ID app Whitepages ID to our OS. Whitepages ID helps identify unknown callers and protects you from spammers, scammers, bill collectors, telemarketers, robocalls, political calls & more. Whitepages is powered by a database of hundreds of millions of true phone numbers and lets you block calls, stop unwanted calls, identify unknown numbers, black list phone numbers, and more.
The app features:
- Caller ID: Only take calls from people you want to talk to. Take calls from friends not in your phone book. Pick up the call from your doctor. Never miss an important call from someone trying to get in touch.
- Call Blocker: Black list spam, scams, and annoying telemarketer or political calls and send them straight to voice mail. Call blocker that black lists and stop calls and SMS messages to take your privacy back.
- Scam & Spam Protection: Alerts automatically appear to warn you if an incoming call is from suspected spam. Easily report spam callers, scams, and SMS spam to stop them from contacting other users in the Whitepages community.
- Phone Book Contact Photos: See the latest profile photo, job title and city information for friends, family, co-workers and business associates from Facebook, Twitter and LinkedIn.
- True Contacts: Add names and addresses from the Whitepages directory to your phone book contacts to keep them true, complete and up to date.
