Following on the heels of T-Mobile’s similar announcement, Verizon is set to roll out robocall and spam call protection to all of its customers starting in March. It will be available to all users who have “smartphones supporting these features,” – this includes all iPhones and Android devices.
Much like T-Mobile and its Caller Verified, Verizon states that it’s committed to supporting the FCC’s STIR/SHAKEN protocols. Verizon also notes that it will have more information on how to sign up for the free service closer to it’s launch date.
We expect to see AT&T and Sprint announce similar STIR/SHAKEN implementations in the coming weeks.
