AT&T To Automatically Ban Robocalls In The Months To Come

The FCC (Federal Communications Commission) in June claimed that suppliers can ban robocalls by default for their users—without needing the users to opt in first. Now, AT&T is following this rule, turning on its Call Protect platform by default for existing and new users. New users will have Call Protect enabled automatically moving forward, and current users will have it turned on “in the months to come.”

The Call Protect service by AT&T does 3 things: it blocks and detects fraudulent calls completely, tags spam calls and telemarketers as “Suspected Spam” when the handset rings, and lets you to preserve a personal list of blocked numbers to specifically ban separate numbers.

The service has been present (and accessible free of cost) for postpaid AT&T users for quite a time now, but the catch has been that you would have to install an app and actively turn the feature on in your account. Now, due to the new ruling by FCC, AT&T can turn it on for you, even though you can still activate it manually if you do not want to wait and already have AT&T. For those who would rather get all of their calls, AT&T will still let consumers to select out of Call Protect same as before.
