AT&T is now offering a service that gives customers more control over unwanted calls to their smartphones.

Launched this week, the service is called AT&T Call Protect and is available to eligible customers — for free. Key features include automatic blocking of fraud calls and warnings of suspected spam calls.

AT&T spokesperson Jeff Bradley explains in a company announcement:

“Nuisance calls are an industry-wide problem that unfortunately affect many people. We’ve listened to our customers and know they want a network that provides tools to proactively assist in blocking nuisance calls. AT&T Call Protect, along with others, will help put customers more in control of the calls they receive.”

The service is available to AT&T consumer postpaid wireless customers with iOS or Android smartphones that are eligible for and set up with AT&T HD Voice.

You can activate AT&T Call Protect in your myAT&T account or by downloading the companion app. The latter option gives you access to more features, such as temporary call blocking. To learn more, visit the AT&T Call Protect webpage.
