spam messages

Spam messages from unknown users are something annoying and irritating. These messages somehow take up extra space and push down the important messages in the app.

Anyhow, these unwanted spam messages take up the battery of our smartwatches as well as they buzz every notification we receive. Also, deleting these messages takes up time and effort.

However, if you really want to get rid of these text messages, here are a few solutions available:

Steps to avoid spam messages

  1. The companies often send these promotional messages to give you an option to opt-out or stop these texts. However, if you get a suspicious message from a random number, don’t reply to it as the scammer will know that the number is valid.
  2. You can just block the number that has been bugging you with unnecessary messages. On an iPhone, you can just tap on the phone number from where you got the message and then tap on the info button. There will be an option available to ‘Block this caller’, just tap on it. On the other hand, on an Android smartphone, you need to open the text and just tap on the three dots on the top-right corner followed by tapping on the ‘Block number’ option.
  3. You can also choose DND (Do not disturb) service to get rid of the unwanted messages as well.
  4. If you want to report a particular number for spam messages, you can register a complaint too. A complaint will be registered and a unique complaint number will be provided to you. The telemarketer will inform you of the action taken against the telemarketer within seven days.
