What It Does
Many calls come in without any effective caller ID – even if you are subscribing to a service or running an app designed to identify callers. The safest thing to do is ignore those calls and let them go to voicemail. That's where YouMail's missed caller ID comes in. Our extensive database of over 200 million numbers and over 500 thousand misbehaving numbers help us identify who hung up on you or who left a voicemail – so you know whether it's a telemarketer, or a scammer, or legitimate business. That way you don't call numbers back and get trapped in a conversation you don't want.
When YouMail notifies you about a missed call – either because left a message or simply hung up – we'll show the name, city and state, and often an appropriate avatar – so that at a glance you can tell who called. When it's a caller that's likely to be a problem, we'll identify the type of caller, letting you know that an IRS Scam called (and that we quietly played an out of service message instead of letting them leave a message).
Why Caller ID is Important
We know that many calls are often from telemarketers, scammers and robocallers. YouMail's Missed Caller ID is a great tool to help identify those callers, saving you time and frustration. No more wasting time wondering whether that hang up or voicemail was someone important.
