Google Brings Spam Protection To US Android Messages Users

Posted by at 12:49 pm on December 14, 2019

Android SMS spam detection is heading to US users, which first launched in select countries this past January.

The update gives warnings about spam in the Messages app and be able to block pernicious account.  It uses the same red spam icon that’ll be familiar to Gmail users, when a suspicious text message arrives. You’re then presented with the option to report the text as spam.  Plus  you can block the conversation if the spam messages don’t stop coming.

 

“With Spam protection for Messages, we warn you of suspected spam and unsafe websites we’ve detected. If you see a suspected spam warning in Messages you can help us improve our spam models by letting us know if it’s spam or not,” Google said in a release.

Again this feature has been available in a number of countries through 2019 but will now be  available to US users.

Google has also released the anti-spam feature with another new security function, Verified SMS, which verifies on a per-text basis whether a company texting you is what it purports to be.
