Call Protect is a free spam and robo call blocker with automatic Caller ID tool for your phone to safeguard 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 at 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.

Ratings and Reviews
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!
Positive impact on my life!
My accountant told me about Call Protect. The first couple weeks I noticed my calls were about half and here’s the trick, every time you get a robot call take that number and put it into app under Block Number. I now have about 25 numbers in there that I’ve blocked after about six weeks time. As every week goes by I get less calls. I’m down to about one a week where before, I had between three and five a day. You will also receive updates about biweekly so keep it updated and doing that takes about two or three seconds. This app works and it’s awesome easy and free! I’ve put it on my husband and my two sons’ phones and they’ve noticed a difference as well. YAY! Thank you Call Protect for having a positive impact on my life!
Legitimate and legally allowed calls being blocked
I am disturbed that people that don’t want spam are reporting credit card support numbers and medical support lines as spam causing the inability of their customers to contact them or they contact their customers since card holders and medical companies who insure the individual being called have the legal rights to be able to contact their clients.
Credit card holders, banks, credit unions, insurance, medical and other businesses who’s customer have accounts with have the legal rights to call or email the account holders.
When the call phone companies implemented the automatic call rejection by law it blocked some of these numbers as well and it cause me to not get a very important call.
Lazy people who don’t want to be called can easily program their own phone to block all but calls from their own contact list.
(White listing is to most effective means to block unwanted calls)
However spammers who can mirror your phone number or the phone number of your contact list should be blocked and prosecuted.
Talking to a technician representative from my cell phone company I got this poorly implemented government mandated auto spam blocking solution removed from my cell phones. They stated they had to implement their internally developed (without doing enough testing for performance) and it was so effective it blocked legitimate phone calls by the data mandated by the federal government.
