**IMPORTANT UPDATE** Default Dialer No Longer Required for Call Control App!

We are pleased to announce that Google has adjusted their requirements for call blocking apps! This has allowed us to NO LONGER require setting Call Control as your Default Dialer.

Users still have the option to set Call Control as their default dialer, but are no longer required to do so.

If you have any questions or concerns, please contact our support team at support@callcontrol.com

We thank you for your patience during this ordeal!

**IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT** Permissions Changes in Call Control App

We recently made some changes to Call Control for Android to be compliant with Google’s new policies, which have impacted some of the functionality Call Control offers, as outlined below.

For more than seven years, Call Control has helped people protect their privacy from unwanted calls and text messages, and Google’s new policies restrict Call Control (and other call blocking apps) to operate as it once did. This left us with no choice but to strip Call Control of some valuable functionality in order to successfully pass the approval process Google has recently introduced.

Failure to pass the approval process would have meant that Call Control would have been delisted from the Play Store at the deadline of March 9th. We have done our best to continue to provide a great product while adhering to Google’s updated policies.

What has changed in Call Control due to Google’s policy update? Default Dialer

The first thing you will notice is that Call Control will now prompt you to become the “Default Dialer”, a designation on your phone which essentially allows Call Control to manage incoming and outgoing phone calls in order to block calls. Previously, we used a set of permissions that allowed Call Control to operate without being a “Default Dialer”. However, Google now requires our app to be the “Default Dialer”.

**NOTICE** You can continue to use your phone’s dialer to make and receive phone calls as normal! This will not impact the ability to use your phone, and make phone calls, as you normally do. You will notice no difference here, and can still use your native dialer to make and receive calls.

SMS Functionality

Unfortunately, we had to completely remove the SMS/MMS functionality including text message blocking. We will continue to work to try to resolve this with Google.

Call Logs and Contacts

We are no longer able to access call logs prior to the March 8 release. Calls made after the update will rebuild the call log, however, calls prior to this date are not available to the app.

Your contacts are also now inaccessible, so Call Control will no longer automatically add your contacts to your Allow List. You can manually add your contacts to the Allow List within Call Control. Again, we are working with Google to try to resolve this issue.

To be clear, all of these changes were 100% driven by Google’s new requirements.

We remain committed to providing you with the best call blocking tools available and to respecting your privacy.

How Many Robocalls are Received in the US Every Second?

Have you ever wondered how many robocalls US consumers receive every second? The number is now at 2,024 per second, according to a call data collection company. The month of January brought us 5.2 billion calls total, and February robocalls totaled 5 billion.

The illegal robocall industry doesn’t show any signs of stopping. And why should they? Now that so much new technology is available and “spoofing” a number is as easy as downloading an app or making a call over the internet, making illegal calls is a cheap, and sometimes lucrative business.

But that doesn’t make it any less shady. Most illegal call centers are based outside the US, and are built like sweat shops, where workers get paid pennies. Unfortunately, that guy calling you from India probably doesn’t have any idea that what he’s doing is part of a huge scam.

Workers in these run-down call operations often have no clue how their bosses actually swindle money out of the people they call, since they pass callers off to someone higher up, once a victim has taken the bait.

In addition, people who work in robocall centers often don’t even speak to anyone on the phone— they simply control a computer that makes hundreds of rapid calls automatically, like a robot. Hence the term “robocall” was born.

2,024 calls per second. That’s no surprise, considering computers are so powerful these days. But what are we supposed to do when a bunch of those calls hit our phones? It’s downright annoying to have to figure out which calls are actually legit.

Many consumers have simply decided not to answer the phone at all, unless they can clear see it’s from someone they know.

What to Do If You’re Being Hit by Robocalls First of all, you can register your number on the FTC’s Do Not Call Registry at any time. However, you should keep in mind that this will only prevent law-abiding telemarketers from using automated dialers to call you without prior consent.

As a practical, easy solution, download Call Control’s free app to block unwanted calls, no matter where they are dialed from.

Call Control uses a unique crowd-sourced feature called Community IQ to block robocalls that have been reported by other users. It’s the fastest, easiest way to drastically cut down on the number of scammers that can reach your phone. In addition, you can now get Call Control for landlines, and protect every member of your household.
