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.

Have been using this for years and loved it. However, now I'm getting non-stop notifications to update the data base with no way to do it. Reading other people's reviews, I guess you now have to pay for updates. I've had no option to do it manually and am not going to pay for a subscription (not that I've gotten any notification about it or info on how to pay for it even if I wanted to!). Very disappointed in the change without any warning along with the constant notifications I can't stop.

only free app I could find that blocks all calls not on a whitelish (which I set to my contacts list on my phone). the option to auto pick-up-then-hang-up is great so i dont even have to worry about annoying voice mail notifications. life is better without scam and telemarketer calls. only thing I'm not a fan of is that they have to integrate to your phone even when you're making an outbound call.

This app is annoying as hell when I actually place or receive a permissible call. Either my phone will start ringing - yet there is no display whatsoever showing me who is calling and thus, no way to answer it. Or, when I select to end a call the call carries on even though the app window has disappeared. The blocking is great. Other than that it's getting ridiculous.
