About Whoscall

Whoscall is a mobile app that specializes in caller identification and spam blocking to help protect users from scammers and fraud. It’s an app that helps users safeguard themselves from potentially threatening calls, texts, and links that try to trick them into getting any information that could lead them to being scammed, effectively preventing any fraud instances from happening.

Whoscall has four main features that help users stay safe against scam and fraud attempts:

  1. Identify unknown callers and text messages: Whoscall boasts a massive database of over 2.6 billion phone numbers. When you receive a call from an unknown number, Whoscall will match it against their database and display information about the caller on your screen, helping you decide whether to answer.
  2. Block spam calls and messages: Whoscall allows you to block unwanted calls and messages. It also has features that use AI to automatically detect and block suspicious calls.
  3. Search unknown numbers: If you come across a missed call or receive a random message from an unknown number, you can search for it within the Whoscall app to see if other users have identified it as spam.
  4. URL Scanner: Whoscall has a built-in URL scanner that users can utilize to scan any links that they receive to verify if they are legitimate or safe. The scanner will show the credentials of the link and run it through a series of checks to ensure it is secure.
  5. Messaging App Integration: Whoscall is integrated with two leading messaging applications - Viber and WhatsApp. Users can use the app’s massive database to help identify unknown callers coming from these applications to help protect themselves as scammers start changing their methods of operations.
