At the very beginning of summer, a new system for blocking spam calls and promotional SMS will appear in Russia. Now the subscriber will be able to leave a complaint about "unsolicited" messages on the website of the Federal Antimonopoly Service (FAS). Within 72 hours, the number will be blocked in the general system.

The fact is that in recent months the FAS has received numerous complaints from citizens who are dissatisfied with the spam that has flooded mobile telephone networks. In addition, people complain about a new kind of spam calls from abroad using spoof numbers. So the “IT people” came up with a new system, which, according to Izvestia, will track and block objectionable SMS and intrusive advertising.

Nevertheless, the authors of the invention believe that it will be necessary to carefully check the appeals of citizens in order to block only the authors of the mailing lists. To do this, experts will connect the analysis of call statistics and a robot filter.

For the convenience of users of mobile networks, a special application form has been developed, which will be available in the second quarter of 2022, the FAS said.

It is planned that the consumer will promptly receive a response from his operator, and the number from which spam was received will be blocked by all companies connected to the system within 72 hours.
