What is Getcontact and How Does It Protect You from Phone Scammers?

We’re in the midst of a global problem that’s shown a huge increase in recent years: spam calls. They are a daily problem of this modern age.

The problem begins when our phone rings and we see an unknown number flash up on the screen. We answer the phone wondering who’s calling and whether it’s about something important – and then we’re hit with the likes of:

  • “Would you like to have a water purifier installed?”
  • “Your boiler’s due for maintenance…”
  • “Take advantage of your free check-up…”
  • “Somebody has attempted to apply for a loan on your behalf…”

The list of nuisance call types goes on.

As the number of spam calls increases, so does the risk of phone scams. There are many ways people can be harmed by having a conversation with a caller who isn’t legit. Fortunately, there’s a mobile application which provides an effective solution: Getcontact.

What is Getcontact?

Getcontact is a mobile app that puts the security of its users at its core. It allows users to query unknown numbers, block spam calls, and report them too. Getcontact serves some 200 million users in over 70 countries, including Russia, Indonesia, Turkey, Ukraine, and Saudi Arabia. It has an average of 9.5 million active users per day. These figures prove that people need protection against spam calls.

How does Getcontact block spam calls?

Getcontact utilises various innovative technologies to address the security needs of mobile phone users. The app offers a robust spam protection and caller identification service combining Artificial Intelligence (AI) with end-user feedback and dozens of different algorithms.

Getcontact takes a wide range of measures to protect its users’ privacy and data security. Through its dedicated Privacy Management Center, users can be confident of the highest technical and operational compliance within the scope of GDPR. They can easily manage visibility settings, not just for their own profile but also for any data they’ve submitted to the app for other members of the Getcontact community to see (e.g. tags).

360-degree security with Getcontact

Getcontact reaches new users every day and is continually being developed with new features based on customer feedback and requests. One of them, Getcontact Messenger, provides users with a real-time chat experience with increased privacy – ensuring 360-degree safe communication for both calls and messages in a single application.
