About this app

Get rid of the unsolicited calls once forever. Safely and absolutely free.

Telemarketers, phone scams or „just“ unsolicited surveys? The Should I Answer app can get you rid of all such calls.

How does the app work?

Whenever some unknown number calls the app checks it in its permanently updated database - immediately, without internet connection. If it finds out that other users reported the respective number as nuisance, it warns you against it. Or if you want it so, it can block it directly, the caller will not be able to reach you.

It is just the database used by the Should I Answer app which is an absolute unique part. It is composed directly by the users of the app: after each unknown call the users can rate it anonymously either as safe or spam. After approval given by our admins the report is then visible in the database where all users can benefit from.

What the app can do?

• It can protect you effectively against the unsolicited calls. You can set the level of protection exactly according to your needs: from simple alert of unsolicited call to direct blocking.

• It can block even hidden, foreign or premium rate numbers. Also you can write your own lists of blocked or allowed numbers.

• The app can be used as fully functional dialer app: you will find all your Contacts, favourite Contacts and complete call history in it.

• The app can protect you even offline. If you need to update the local database it waits for your wi-fi connection.

• It’s simple, even your grandma can use it :-)

How does the app deal with your personal data?

Everything is happening directly in your phone, and in your phone only - your data is never by passed to some 3rd party. The app can’t „see“ even your own phone number, all reports are fully anonymous, the app doesn’t send even your Contacts anywhere.

Best app! Glad I downloaded this. It's blocked so many scam callers, without blocking calls I want to receive. The settings are easy to use and easy to adjust to your own special preferences. And no ads or purchase promos. Thanks for that!💙 I just have a question...why does my sychronize date remain the same? After each time I synchronize, it's still showing the date I downloaded the app instead of most recent date of synchronization...? Other than that, it seems to be working properly. 👍👍👍

Worked well for me for a year but suddenly has begun crashing every time it tries to update the database. I've uninstalled and reinstalled a few times but it keeps happening. Update: the last app update seems to have fixed the crashing. Increasing rating to reflect the experience.

I've TRIED to use this app for perhaps 8 months. Seems a good, useful idea & concept. WANT to like! Is the problem partly my not-the-latest Android? Have perused those Help files that are accessible. But app refers to other Help files which are not visible regardless how much & many times I've searched. Some Help files do NOT contain info the app says they will. My many searches for info/Help result in exasperation. Manual Updating & the Promo code from "contributing" are ELUSIVE. WANT to like!
