Can someone recommend a messaging app to block spam

If the app can block spam, can at least block not-in-contact with whitelisting ?

  • I'm a bit partial to Youmail as it has Visual Voicemail functionality as well but Hiya is another option that we've covered on the Ting blog.

  • I'm currently using Youmail and although it was very difficult at first I manage to get it to block 90% of spam calls. And maybe I can contact Youmail support again, but it doesn't seem to be blocking Text Messages? The scammers, yes they literally call me almost 10 times a day, are also using text messaging to send me malicious content? I've tried Hiya before, the differences between Hiya and Youmail, is that with Hiya the phone still rings and I still get tons of voicemail. In your experience, does Youmail block spam text messages?

  • I'm currently testing SMS Organizer from Microsoft, which should move text messages to promotions and do not notify. Unfortunately, it doesn't have, non-in-contact feature. Since it's still in early access, I'll shoot them a note about that.

  • It doesn't look like Youmail has SMS blocking but your phone can likely block the numbers (once saved as contacts) to prevent them from texting you, if needed we could also help by changing your phone number to stop that spam.

  • Yeah, I'm considering that as option, my phone has dual sim, get a second number till I'm able to switch all my accounts to a number. I'm holding off on for the time being.
