Apple, Google, Microsoft and Samsung join together to crack down on robocalls

Posted on Posted in 2016 Business Opportunities For You, What's Trending Now


Apple and Google parent company Alphabet have joined a coalition of more than 30 tech companies and telecoms focused on combating automated phone calls, according to Reuters.

Called the “Robocall Strike Force,” the group is led by the Federal Communications Commission, which held its  first hearing on the subject today in Washington, DC.  Robocalls include both prerecorded messages from misleading phone numbers and automated text messages.

The FCC is turning to companies like Apple, Alphabet, AT&T, and Verizon because it’s seeking a solution to prevent telemarketers and even big corporations from harassing consumers with prerecorded messages.

“We know there is a problem.We know how much consumers dislike these calls,” said FCC Commissioner Mignon L. Clyburn. “We know the public is frustrated, because they assumed that after they registered for the ‘Do Not Call’ list, this would stop. It did not, so now it is time to take some real action.”

The strike force is expected to report to the FCC by October 19th with “concrete plans to accelerate the development and adoption of new tools and solutions,” said AT&T CEO Randall Stephenson, who is the chairman of the coalition.

These solutions could come in the form of Caller ID verification standards that could block spoofed phone numbers, as well as a list of numbers from government agencies and banks that telemarketers would not be able to spoof.
