What is YouMail?
Although it does offer some spam blocking features, YouMail is not primarily a spam blocker app; at its core, it’s a cloud-based visual voicemail service. That means it redirects your voicemails to a YouMail voice mailbox in the cloud that you can access from multiple devices. From there, you can listen to or read transcripts of your voicemails on your phone, computer, or tablet. YouMail also offers basic caller ID and spam call blocking features, but it does not offer spam text blocking. By contrast, Robokiller is fully centered around spam blocking and offers complete protection from spammers and scammers. Our app handles robocalls and robotexts swiftly and effectively, always working to secure your privacy and peace of mind.
How much does YouMail cost?
There is a free version of YouMail, but it only offers limited features; users will need to upgrade to a paid plan to use the rest. The service offers a personal plan that costs $7.99 per month or $71.88 per year, as well as three professional plans:
Solo: $17.99 per month or $179.88 per year
Growth: $29.99 per month or $299.88 per year
Small Business: $49.99 per month or $479.88 per year
Robokiller keeps things simple by offering everyone the same affordable flat rate: $4.99 per month or $39.99 per year. Plus, you can try it out in advance at no risk with a free 7-day trial. Looking for enterprise robocall and spam text protection? We have you covered there, too.
How does YouMail make money?
The free version of the YouMail app generates revenue by displaying advertisements to its users. The service uses a combination of audio and text-based ads, which customers can get rid of by paying to upgrade their plan. Of course, YouMail also makes money from the relatively lofty price tags on their paid services.
Is YouMail secure?
The YouMail app is considered secure, but it can also be confusing for customers — especially those who want to stop using the service. Since YouMail redirects voicemails from your phone service provider to its own cloud-based voice mailbox, you must fully deactivate your account before uninstalling the application itself. Otherwise, you could end up continuing to send your voicemails to a service that you no longer use, which can be extremely problematic for both personal and business accounts.
How do I uninstall YouMail?
There’s more to uninstalling YouMail than simply removing the app, and it’s important to fully deactivate your account before you hit delete. You can uninstall YouMail online by logging into your account and clicking Settings in the left panel, then Security in the drop-down menu. Scroll down and click Close Account, then accept the deactivation prompts and dial the codes given to you. Once you select “Completely delete my account” to finalize the process, you can safely uninstall YouMail and download a more effective spam blocker.
The tools you need to live spam-free
Here are some of Robokiller’s unique features (that you can’t get with YouMail).
Customizable call blocking
Like Robokiller, YouMail offers users the ability to customize their block and allow lists. However, Robokiller's 99.9% effective spam identification and blocking ensures you're protected against risky calls that aren't in your personal blocklist.
Like many spam blockers, YouMail blocks calls using a combination of caller ID and category blocking. The problem is, scammers can just change numbers to get around that. Robokiller, on the other hand, uses machine learning to detect scammers based on their unique audio fingerprints. Scammers may change their numbers, but they can’t change their voices.
Spam text blocking
YouMail does not offer SMS protection. Robokiller, on the other hand, offers 99% effective robotext blocking.
Protection against spoofed calls
Some robocallers imitate local phone numbers so you’re more likely to answer them. Although YouMail does offer some anti-spoofing features, Robokiller knows how to identify and stop these sneaky spam calls before they ever reach you.
Robokiller doesn’t just block robocalls, we make it fun. Answer Bots intercept incoming spam calls and mimic a real person to waste telemarketers’ time. You can even listen to the recordings. It’s a little poetic justice (and bonus entertainment) that YouMail just can’t offer.
