Best spam blocker app

I’ve been getting so many spam texts recently and I’ve been trying a few apps to stop them. TextShield just works - all of my spam texts were blocked out of my inbox. It also goes one step further than other apps and seems to file away my other bot texts into special sub folders too! Excellent app, and great simple design.

Excellent product

Very effective at blocking spam. A very well done product that has greatly improved my interaction with my phone. I used to get tons of unnecessary alerts on my phone and now no longer.

FathomTel provides fake numbers to spammers

I have been receiving repeat creepy spam from a number that belongs to FathomTel, which (under the name “Unlisted”) provides fake numbers that cannot be traced. This service is used by spammers to mask the number they are calling from. (FathomTel even has an Unlisted app on this App Store.)

So when I looked for a spam blocker, my jaw dropped when I saw it was created by FathomTel. Working both sides of the deal.

No way I would give $3.99 a month to this company.

Developer Response ,

We have another app which sells phone service. Our customers are small businesses, privacy focused individuals, and so on. Unfortunately we also have users that attempt to abuse our service and we block them as soon as we detect that or receive a report. If you haven’t already, please send us a message at and we will investigate immediately.

The linkage between these apps is not what you accuse me of. I’m a single developer and I developed a spam blocking system for users of Unlisted, who use a second number there on a daily basis and needed a solution to block incoming spam texts. TextShield is that same technology extracted and made available for use on your main number.
