Review of the App by users
- “For some reason over the past week I’ve been getting a lot of spam text messages. I’m using Google messages and it looks like the system is detecting these messages and automatically moving them to the spam & block section of Google messages. The thing is that I don’t want to receive a text notification every time a spam message comes through and is blocked. I’ve never experienced this with Samsung messages and it just started happening with Google messages. Is there a way to disable notifications for spam messages?”
- “The spam text messages are relentless. I am getting spam texts 10 times a day and they are coming from an email address. And now the past 2 days I have been getting numerous group spam texts which are even more infuriating because people start replying to it and now I have a near-constant feed of texts coming in from people I don’t know spammers”.
