Robocalls are not only annoying, they are potentially dangerous and are progressively becoming an even bigger problem. Sadly, it does not look like the situation will improve in 2021, as there were 22.8 billion total robocalls recorded at the midway point of 2020.

Robocalls are phone calls made by an automatic dialer that transmits pre-recorded messages. While this may not seem like an issue, it can be. Some robotic calls may be from legitimate sources, but they may also be scams designed to deceive or bully people to provide personal information.

There are several ways to fight robocalls, you can read an article on that here.

In this article we will provide you with a list of top 10 robocall blocking apps for Android and iOS based on customer reviews. We hope this list helps you to find an app that works for you.
