FCC Moves To Block Spam and Robo-Calls

Finally! Tired of robo-callers bugging you about your car’s extended warranty? Who isn’t? I don’t answer any call that the number isn’t in my phone because I’m not dealing with it.  We may have a fix to this problem! The FCC is taking some aggressive steps to cut down on spam and robo-calls. The agency is using new protocols to make sure that spammers aren’t getting around robocall bans with loopholes. That includes a new ID authentication process known as STIR/SHAKEN, which FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel called “a very powerful tool for blocking unlawful robocalls”.
