YouMail’s Smart Blocking feature is an enhancement to your built-in call blocking that prevents the following from getting through to you:
- Call spammers
- Other unwanted callers
When a blocked caller calls you, they will hear a “number disconnected” tone instead of your normal voicemail greeting.
YouMail also keeps a directory of known robocallers, telemarketers and spammers that is constantly being updated by our users. Thanks to this database, we can block unwanted callers for you automatically. To learn more about the YouMail public directory, please follow this link.
If you are on an Android, YouMail can activate your phone’s built-in call blocking on its own whenever you activate Smart Blocking. Learn how to activate Smart Blocking on an Android here!
If you are on an iPhone, you will need to activate your phone’s built-in call blocking to prevent your phone from ringing. Learn how to activate Smart Blocking on an iPhone here!
