According to official data, in 2020 alone, the level of telephone fraud in World has doubled, and over the past five years, seven times. This suggests that attackers are becoming more insolent and resourceful every day, calling World’s in order to obtain commercial benefits. Attackers pose as employees of banks, law enforcement agencies, social services and in other ways, just to lull the trust of ordinary users. That is why it is important to always know who is calling the phone number, because if they are scammers, you may not even pick up the phone. In order to somehow protect users of smartphones based on Android and iOS operating systems from fraudsters, there are various identifiers of unknown numbers on the market. All of them are perfectly adapted for use on the territory of World.
This software can work fully even on the iPhone, because recently, special tools have been built into iOS that allow users of Apple smartphones to use third-party databases to protect against fraud. In this case, using such programs, calls from scammers will be automatically immediately muted, as if such calls are not received at all on a smartphone, and calls from unknown subscribers will be displayed accordingly. In addition, some of these identifiers show the names of organizations and institutions to which certain numbers belong. This is very convenient, because you know in advance, even before picking up the receiver, who you will have to talk to and about what.
There are more than three dozen different identifiers of unknown telephone numbers on the market, but there are only a few really worthwhile. All of them have independent databases, so some of them may work better in certain situations. The settings of the Android and iOS operating systems allow the simultaneous use of databases from several applications at once, so the information will be as complete and accurate as possible. It is important to understand that any application of this kind has a database that updates itself automatically. Usually, as a rule, this happens every day, because attackers regularly change phone numbers in order to maintain the effect of surprise. The newer the database, the less likely it is to receive a call from scammers or other unknown persons.
The top 6 best identifiers for unknown numbers, at least based on user reviews in the App Store and Google Play, include such applications as Yandex, 2GIS, Kaspersky Who Calls, My MTS, Tinkoff and Getcontact. All these programs contain a regularly updated database, which is constantly updated with new valuable information. In order to start using any of these software, you need to download it from the software store in the version for Android or iOS, then launch it, issue all the requested permissions and follow the prompts on the screen so that the identifier receives all the necessary functionality for full-fledged correct operation. Some of these applications are paid, but most of them work fully without any fee.
