Number Shield

Block annoying scammers who hide behind fake phone numbers.

Do you get unwanted calls from phone numbers similar to your own? This is known as caller ID neighbor spoofing, and it's a common trick to try to get you to pick up the phone. Blocking these calls can be difficult because the number isn't always the same.

With Number Shield, you can block an entire group of numbers at once. Just enter a wildcard for each digit you want to block.

For example, if your phone number is 714-555-1234, scammers might call you using a number like 714-555-6789. You can block all similar numbers by entering 714-555-####. Wildcards and numbers can be combined in any order you choose.

Please note:

• Blocked calls are sent directly to voice mail.
• Number Shield does not block text messages.
