Block Calls & Caller ID

Block Calls & Caller ID


PrivacyStar is the only service to tell you who is calling and why. With real-time caller ID, call blocking, automatic scam blocking, complaint filing against unwanted calls, reverse number lookup and directory assistance – you get complete control over your incoming call experience. PrivacyStar is the #1 source of call complaints filed with the FTC, helping to put a stop to the worst callers that bother you.

The PrivacyStar application now features an enhanced call log to give you more information and more control than is supplied with your Android smartphone, automatically identifying the numbers you don’t know by name and by type.

Incoming calls will be prominently flagged with one of the following notifications:

Green: For callers not in the address book and not known to be telemarketers or debt collectors

Yellow: A suspected telemarketer or debt collector, but not on the PrivacyStar list of reported offenders

Red: For callers who are telemarketers or debt collectors that are on the PrivacyStar list of reported offenders

Scammer: Known scammers, calls and texts from these numbers will be automatically blocked before reaching the user and a notification will alert the user that a scammer has been blocked

The free PrivacyStar service for Android includes:
• Automatic detection and blocking of scam calls and texts (ScamBlock)
• Unlimited call blocking
• Unlimited text blocking*
• Real-Time Caller ID (limited)
• Text ID (limited)
• Unlimited reporting of abusive numbers

• Unlimited real-time caller ID**

• Advanced customization of CallCenter


* Due to changes in the Android system, the free text blocking feature is not available on Android version 4.4 and higher.
**Real time Caller ID requires a network connection.
Note: Premium pricing and feature sets may vary slightly by carrier.

This version now includes an enhanced call log, identifying the numbers you don't know and making it easy to take action (block, file a complaint, add to contacts, call or message back). We've developed a new feature we call Caller YD, to help tell you not only who is calling, but why. You'll not only see names, but also caller types and behavior. In addition, we've added a full search to find names for numbers you don't know and find phone numbers you need for people and businesses.

Great App, but... This App is fantastic and does just what I needed. I am willing to pay for the upgrade but every time I try it tells me payment unsuccessful. That's weird, I guess they don't want my money. I wonder how much money privacystar has lost by this happening to other people.
