Verizon announced that it is now preparing to launch enhancements to its commercial text messaging platform to protect mobile customers from annoying spam.
This new platform will improve spam protections while continuing to enable commercial providers of SMS text messages capacity at scale, says Verizon. According to the Operator, the enhanced platform should go live in about a month.
These enhancements will provide a better customer experience while further reducing the ability for spammers to use personal messaging platforms for spam or phishing attacks. This new platform uses a full 10-digit telephone number to help you recognize who is texting a customer.
Last month, Verizon started rolling out new and improved tools to help identify and block robocalls. A free version of the Call Filter service, which offers spam alerts and more, was rolled out to Verizon Wireless customers.
In addition,the company began deployment of STIR/SHAKEN caller ID technology as part of its network interconnections. Both tools will offer significant help for consumers who are consistently harassed by unwanted and annoying robocalls.
