Text messaging has become the go to communication tool for so many of us because it’s an extremely efficient way to have multiple conversations throughout the day.
And as always, the flies go where the honey is...that is to say that spammers and scammers are increasing their attempts to trick us via text messaging.
Another issue with text messaging is sometimes you don’t know who someone is because they aren’t in your contacts list.
If you’re looking for a better way to manage both of these situations, checkout a free app called Truemessenger.
Truemessenger is part of the Truecaller community of over 100 million members that join together to report spam and automatically block known junk messages.
It can also use the community to help identify who is texting you when they aren’t already in your contacts, so you can avoid the awkward ‘who is this’? response.
It’s not perfect, but if your looking for some help, I’ve posted the link at DataDoctors.com/radio.
