Call Protect is a free spam and robo call blocker with automatic Caller ID tool that safeguards you against known 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!
Best features and Customer support till date!
Oki, so after trying out Hiya, Roboshield etc, none of which worked for me, this app was my last option. I’m so glad I did - this app has huge database of blocked numbers as well create your own blocking database with either individual numbers or entire range. The entire range feature was also posted to accommodate better range blocking as per my suggestion and the devs incorporated it! Speaking of which, these guys have best customer support out there - i mean i talk with them daily through their text support and someone is always responding back to me within minutes! I recommended few changes and the devs even went ahead and incorporated those suggestions as well! So far, the app is working flawlessly in blocking most spam calls and I intend to keep it for long.
Update to earlier review
I can’t seem to update my earlier review, so I am writing a new one to thank this extraordinarily responsive developer team.
I have used this app for nearly a year, and loved it. This week it had an update, and after that, it was not protecting any numbers. I followed the instructions in the app to enable it, but they did not work. I was really sad, because I love the app.
I rated the new version with a 1-star rating 2 days ago and wrote a review stating why. Today I received a message that the developers had responded. I followed their new instructions and after several glitches was able to make it work. I tapped on the place to contact them for help, and was surprised on a Sunday morning to have somebody text me back immediately with assistance. We had some back-and-forth discussion, and they were able to resolve my problem.
While I was unhappy that the app did not update as expected, and I had to uninstall it and reinstall it several times, and restart my phone several times, I want to say that I am so impressed with the quality of customer service that I would give this a six star rating if I possibly could, just based on the responsiveness of their team. ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Developer Response ,
Hi, thank you for your review. The issue you are facing is is most likely related to the iOS and not the app. In a mean time, when you uninstalled and reinstalled the app, did you also restart your phone? You are required to restart the phone after uninstalling. Please let us know if this helps. We look forward to you finding this app useful again. Thank you.
