Although CallHero does operate as a spam blocker, it primarily functions as a virtual assistant that helps business owners avoid missing calls from potential clients.* The app includes several features that help small businesses organize their calls and contacts as well as record their interactions — spam blocking isn’t necessarily the focus.
CallHero might claim a 90% reduction in spam, but Robokiller — which is a dedicated spam blocker to its core — blocks 99% of spam calls and texts. With vital spam-blocking features
like real-time call analysis, customizable block and allow lists, and an airtight algorithm, Robokiller allows you to live life spam-call-free™.
*Are you a business owner looking for an alternative to CallHero? Robokiller Enterprise boasts the same 99% effective robocall and robotext protection as Robokiller, and can help you weed out bad callers so your focus stays on generating quality leads. Learn more here.
CallHero starts you off with a one-week free trial; after that, CallHero Premium costs $19.99 per month or $194.99 per year. Both the monthly and yearly subscriptions are set to auto-renew, which you can turn off in your phone settings. If you wait until you’re within 24 hours of the end of the pay period, however, you’ll be locked in for another month.
An effective spam blocker doesn’t have to be expensive, and Robokiller is proof of that. We also offer a free 7-day trial
, and then you can reap the benefits of all of our advanced features for just $4.99 per month or $39.99 per year thereafter.
Since CallHero is effectively a virtual assistant, your digital secretary will pick up calls from unknown numbers to find out who is calling and for what reason. The app then informs you of their response so you can decide if you want to answer the call. If the call is from a known spammer, it will be declined.
Robokiller uses cutting-edge technology
to provide unbeatable call screening services, keeping spammers at bay all night and all day. With the help of artificial intelligence and machine learning, we create an audio fingerprint for each scammer. That means that even if they change their number, we won’t let them sneak through.
CallHero and Truecaller are not exactly the same thing, but the two services teamed up in early 2022. The plan is to eventually integrate the CallHero technology into Truecaller’s platform.
CallHero is available to iPhone (iOS 13 or later) and Android users on AT&T, T-Mobile, Sprint, and Verizon contracts. Since CallHero is being integrated into Truecaller, users will eventually have to conform to Truecaller’s tech requirements in order to access its features.
