At Robokiller, we understand how frustrating it is to be relentlessly targeted by telemarketers, scammers, and other people you don’t want to hear from. After all, that’s why we built our app in the first place — to put an end to the madness.
Robokiller is designed to protect you from the barrage of unwanted calls and texts you receive on a daily basis, and we take pride in stifling fraudsters who aim to steal your hard-earned money. But, for all the progress we’ve made, we know our mission — to eliminate phone spam, for good — is unfinished.
We work tirelessly to fulfill our promise and improve our product to make our spam defense as impenetrable as can be. Part of how we do that is by listening to you, our users. Your feedback is critical and our ears are always open.
With that, we’re thrilled to announce 4 major updates to our app inspired by you.
It used to be that if someone wanted to sell you something or scam you, they’d call you or dial you with a robocall. Although spam calls are still a major concern, spam texts have emerged in recent years as a significant threat, too. In fact, Americans received triple the amount of spam texts as they did spam calls in 2022.
In response to shifting trends and with your safety in mind, we set out to prioritize SMS spam identification. We’re excited to announce we’re now 99% accurate at identifying spam texts. We’ve drastically reduced the occurrence of false positives and can differentiate between legitimate and fraudulent texts with extreme precision — better than any other app on the market.
Meanwhile, we’re working hard to implement SMS categorization. Whereas currently you can mark texts as spam or not spam within the app, soon you’ll be able to categorize texts just as you do calls (e.g., telemarketer, promotion) and customize the way you block texts based on those categories.
We know our onboarding process was a barrier for some users because of its length and complexity. In order for Robokiller to work as intended, we can’t remove all of that. However, we took a number of actions to reduce the amount of steps required in onboarding and allow new users to more easily complete a partial onboarding before undergoing the full setup process. Now, you can see Robokiller in action before finalizing onboarding.
At the outset, Robokiller will prompt you to take a handful of essential steps, but you can return later to turn on call forwarding and notifications, among other things. This ensures you can get started quickly and efficiently, without having to navigate the full onboarding process.
Robokiller users used to have to host their voicemail through the app no matter what. This left some confused as to why they couldn’t access their voicemails through their native phone. Now, it’s up to you where to store them. Go to Protection, then under Voicemail Settings tap Voicemail handler. On the next screen, you can select between Robokiller and your native phone.
When you run into an issue with the Robokiller app, we want it to be as easy as possible to fix. We’re in the process of implementing detailed, specific FAQs for how to address common concerns and improving our chat bot functionality.
At Robokiller, we’re committed to providing the best possible experience for you. By taking steps such as improving the accuracy of our SMS blocking and simplifying the onboarding process, we believe our app is more effective and user-friendly than ever before.
