MetroPCS’ New Marked Calls Technology
If you have MetroPCS, you’ve probably noticed a new feature called marked calls. This feature is also available with T-Mobile. This new feature checks incoming calls against a database of scam calls. You can also get this technology for free from Verizon. If you’re worried that you’re being scammed, try marking your calls as scams. It doesn’t always work, but you can’t lose.
T-Mobile uses technology to compare incoming calls with a list of known scam calls
T-Mobile is introducing a new service to identify scammers and block these people from calling your cell phone. The Scam ID feature analyzes incoming calls and compares the number with a list of known scam calls. If it detects a phony number, the system will send a warning message to the customer’s cell phone. The customer can choose to block all identified calls or only answer those they know are scams.
To make sure that no one is calling your cell phone, download the Scam Shield app, which allows you to customize the protection features. The app is free and available for iOS and Android phones running Android 7.0 or higher. It is not available for T-Mobile Prepaid customers. You can download the Scam Shield app from the App Store or Google Play. The app also protects your personal number from scammers and robocalls.
Moreover, T-Mobile offers a free Scam Shield app for its postpaid customers. This app identifies scam calls and blocks them before you even answer them. The enhanced Caller ID feature provides detailed information about the caller. With this feature, you can easily determine whether the call is from a legitimate business or a spammer. The Number Verified tag is displayed on legitimate calls while the “Scam Likely” tag appears on potential scam calls.
MetroPCS uses Caller Verified technology
If you’re not sure how to set up Caller Verified on your phone, you’re not alone. Not all mobile phone companies offer the technology, and some don’t support it at all. This is one of the main reasons why so many people are turning to other carriers. These networks use technology called SHAKEN and STIR, which uses a standard to verify incoming caller ID. Scammers can use the area code or three-digit prefix to fool caller ID.
Fortunately, MetroPCS has the technology to protect you from scam calls. With this new technology, you can identify a scam caller easily and block it from bothering you. Caller Verified works through STIR and SHAKEN, which is a public-key infrastructure. These standards are vital in the fight against scam calls and fraud. By using these standards, you can be confident that you’ll never get a scam call.
Before you sign up for a MetroPCS service, make sure you’ve read about this technology. It’s not an easy process. First, you need to install the MetroPCS App on your phone. It will allow you to activate this technology in your device’s settings. After you’ve installed it, the app will scan all incoming calls and notify you if they’re scams.
