Call Protect is a spam call blocker and automatic Caller ID tool for your phone to protect you against new telemarketers, robo-callers, scammers, surveys, spammers, and other unwanted callers. With Call Protect, you can have peace of mind while it silently works for you to reduce the number of unsolicited phone calls you receive.
Call Protect maintains the latest list of active spam and robo callers. This list is monitored and updated in real-time. When you activate the Call Protect extension offered by this app, the list of suspicious phone numbers is periodically updated onto your device. The highly-risky phone numbers that have been identified as harmful with our sophisticated algorithms are automatically blocked; while the other numbers, which may potentially be harmful, but have not been identified as such with full confidence yet, are added onto your phone with their caller ID information containing a warning message. This will alert you when you receive a phone call from such suspicious callers. These features work alongside each other to guard you against ever-evolving spammers.
Beside Call Blocking and automatic Caller ID, this app also has a Caller ID lookup feature. You may use this feature to perform a reverse phone number lookup on any phone number from the US and Canada. This lookup service, in most cases, retrieves the name to help you identify the caller. After identifying a caller, you have options to call, message, or block the number. You can also add it to your phone’s contacts list directly from within the app.
Some useful features:
- Automatic spam call filter
- Caller ID information on risky numbers
- Reverse phone lookup utility
- Range-of-numbers blocker
The use of Call Protect reduces the unwanted calls you receive. It will also alert you when a potentially harmful phone number calls your phone.
Call Protect offers a monthly subscription to PRO Protection that gives you access to the PRO features that are additional to the basic free features, for a small monthly fee. You can choose to cancel the subscription any time by going to the account settings in the App Store.
The terms of service that cover the app usage and subscriptions are available on https://callprotect.org/docs/terms_and_privacy.html.

Saved me from robot calls
I installed this app a few month ago when I was getting 5 calls a day from robot (SSN scam, etc.). As soon as I installed it, almost all of them disappeared!
I also don’t understand people complaining about the ads being pushy and whatnot: the app runs in the background and you only have to open it to update your database or manually block numbers. It’s not like ads were ruining your experience…
I took a star off tho, because now there is an option for a paid plan, I do not seem to find what my “basic plan” covers anymore.
Could you add a chart with what the normal plan does vs the pro? Because “Regularly updated spam database” does not give me information. What does that mean? That my “basic” database will be updated only once a week? A month? Never?
Developer Response ,
Thank you so much for the positive review. You still have access to all the features you used to have on a free version with the Basic protection. The PRO Protection has a few enhanced features like increased allowed numbers in range-blocking feature, significantly less advertisements, and regularly updating spam number database that does not necessarily require launching of the app. On a basic version, it is mandatory to launch the app to update the database.
For ten years I had a small service business, for which I used my cell phone. When I went out of business I did not change my phone number, so it is out there in the public. I was getting 4-5 robot calls per day, and then the spam texts started. I diligently block every number which calls me and does not leave a message, every robot voice mail, etc, yet the same places would call me again and again from a different number every day. And I do not answer an unknown number ever, though of course I had to when I was in business since it might be a new customer. Since installing this app I hardly ever get those one-ring hangups and even more rarely robot voicemails. In fact unless I happen to scroll to the page the app is on, I now forget I even used to get those things so constantly. Very glad I took a chance on this free app!
Great blocking app...
So far so good with this app! Before I installed it about a week or so ago, I was getting a lot of Spam TEXT Messages every day so I’d write down the numbers to keep track of them. When I got the app, I immediately added all of those Spam numbers to the “Block List” and it has worked!! I have yet to have one of those “blocked” numbers come through.
I would suggest to the people that seem to be having a problem with this app to start writing down the numbers you consider are Spam, etc., then actually type them into the Blocked Number list in the app. It’s very easy to do and you don’t have to open up any of the messages to get the # they’re coming from. I think it gives the app a way to start out and search for the correct type of numbers to block. As I previously said, I have yet to have a one of them come through!
