Sometimes almost all of us have experienced the trouble of getting spam calls, which are very annoying. You will be surprised to know that more than 50 billion people received spam calls last year, especially in the US. Obviously, no one likes to receive these unwanted spam calls and wants to block them so that these spam calls do not disturb the users in between their work. However, Samsung smartphones offer the enhanced ability to monitor these unwanted calls and immediately block them. So here is a short and quick guide to help you out in blocking these unwanted spam/fraud calls on Galaxy devices.
Spam or fraud calls are irritating, but also it’s very dangerous to pick up these calls as sometimes these types of calls can trap us in a further big scandal which can happen. They can obtain our personal data and can misuse it for their profit.
It’s been several years now since the Samsung smartphones have the spam call monitoring system capability, which has been evolved and enhanced a lot since its introduction. However, Samsung’s Smart Calls feature is the most effective tool, which offers real-time identification of spam calls and automatically blocks them.
