Receiving spam messages is almost like getting unwanted flyers in your mailbox, but only more annoying! But here’s the good news - we’ve improved the SMS filtering feature for iOS 16 and above. Read on to know more about the feature.

There’s no denying that spam and unwanted messages have become a major nuisance. From annoying promotions to harmful scams, these messages can put your personal information at risk. But hate it or love it, SMS still remains an important part of our daily communication. So instead of the problem, we decided to focus on the solution! With our enhanced SMS Filtering Feature (for iOS 16 and above), dealing with spam messages will be a thing of the past.

How does the Filtering Work?
With Truecaller's filtering feature enabled, any SMS you receive from a business or non-business sender, except contacts or iMessages, will be categorized as safe or SMS junk based on previous reports by the Truecaller community.

 

Spam messages from unknown senders are filtered into the 'Junk' category, while other messages are sorted into their respective categories. All filtering occurs locally on your device and is not sent to servers, so you can rest assured that your privacy is protected.

 

Benefits?
The advantages of using the Enhanced SMS filtering on Truecaller are clear as a blue sky:

  • Your inbox will stay clean and organized just like different clothes stacked into different drawers, but only automatically!
  • You can save time by getting straight to the messages that matter.
  • It will help you avoid scams and phishing attempts that could lead to security issues or financial loss. 

 

To sum it up…
If you're tired of dealing with spam and unwanted SMS messages, Truecaller's SMS filtering feature is a great solution. With the filtering categories, you can avoid the messages you don't want to see. Just be sure to review your spam folder regularly to check for false positives or missed messages, and adjust your settings as needed.  And remember, it's Free!

This is a great feature but there isn’t any way to report false positives - I have genuine messages from legit companies that have been flagged as Spam.

iPhone SMS app doesn’t have this option. You can start reporting it here on the community, share sender ID and SMS content (hide sensitive information).

      Understanding Truecaller's Verified Badge
      In today's digital landscape, where communication is increasingly virtual, establishing trust and authenticity is paramount. A Verified Badge serves as a symbol of trust, confirming the authenticity of a user and fostering a sense of confidence among its user base.
       
      The Significance of the Verified Badge
      The Verified Badge is a symbol of trustworthiness within the Truecaller community. When a user sets up a profile using their genuine name, the platform's intelligent algorithms spring into action. Truecaller carefully assesses the provided information, ensuring its alignment with stringent verification criteria. If the name meets these standards, the user is rewarded with the coveted Verified Badge.
       
      Enhancing the user experience
      When a call is received or a number is searched, the presence of the Verified Badge immediately signals to other users that the displayed name is authentic. This transparency fosters a sense of trust and security, empowering individuals to confidently engage in communication, knowing that the identity on the other end is legitimate.

       
      Steps to start your verification process on Truecaller
      1. Create your Truecaller profile using your actual name.
      2. Truecaller systems will determine if your name qualifies for the Verified badge.
      3. If you previously used a fake name or initials, update your profile with your real name to be considered for verification.
      4. Link your Google account with Truecaller.
      5. Connecting your Google account enhances our ability to verify your name accurately, increasing your chances of receiving the Verified Badge. Additionally, the badge is displayed on your profile based on suggested names. Ensure your profile information remains up-to-date for the best chance of verification!
       
      Note: Verified Badge do not prevent from getting marked as spam.
