What It Does
Unmasking blocked callers with Privacy Guard eliminates one of the nasty tricks (i.e., staying anonymous!) that telemarketers, spammers, debt collectors, and scammers use to try to bother you. Privacy Guard examines the incoming caller ID and requires callers where the caller ID is blocked or unknown to enter their number. Yet, Privacy Guard also lets legitimate callers get through, such as those calling from a foreign country.
How Privacy Guard Works
Whenever a caller with a "Blocked" or "Unknown" caller ID contacts you, let it go to YouMail and Privacy Guard will require the caller to enter in their phone number to identify themselves to be able to leave you a voicemail. Telemarketers won't want to identify their phone number and robocallers can't type in their phone number so you will only have messages from legitimate callers!
Why Privacy Guard is Important
Blocked or unknown calls are usually bad news. And no one likes wasting time with telemarketers and spammers. So why waste time and energy listening to their voicemails? Prevent clogging up your inbox with Privacy Guard – and automatically force blocked callers to unblock their number (or enter it) to get through.
