Best Purchase I’ve Ever Made
I was being inundated with telemarketing calls and couldn’t make them stop. As a Verizon customer, I had no carrier-provided solution (which is very disappointing). I downloaded PrivacyStar and saw an immediate decrease in the number of nuisance calls I was receiving. I found out that this app was created by the same company that provides scam blocking for T-Mobile. I not only highly recommend using the PrivacyStar app but I also recommend switching to T-Mobile for their superior FREE scam blocking service...which I will be doing ASAP!! Thank you PrivacyStar!!! ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️
Very functional, but still new
The app does exactly what it claims to do! I was recieving "free crusie" offers several times a week, and since I've downloded the app a few weeks ago, I haven't recieved a single one! The lookup sometimes has odd names, but overall the app works exceptionally well. After measuring for a few days, it takes less than 4% of my battery over the course of the day.
I would occasionally experience a reboot as described in some other reviews, but since upgrading iOS I haven't had the problem any more!
Biggest scam on the App Store
So I wanted to give this app about 6 months before reviewing, here's what I think so far. So the protection has been adequate at best. And, while I still get tons of robocalls, I do know that indeed the app is working because of all of the privacy star voicemails. But that isn't my gripe. It's that fact that Mr. Number does the exact same thing as this but for FREE!!! Couple that with the fact that caller id never works and protection that is sub par at best is the reason for that 2 stars lol. Oh yeah and by the way I remember using Mr. Number from my blackberry days so there's another option that has been around for just as long if not longer that is completely free while giving similar if not better results.
