Area sears holdings is trying to stay afloat after filing for bankruptcy last year.
>>the fcc is urging cell phone companies to block robocalls before they get to your phone.
>>technology is already in existence that would make it harder for spammers to reach you, but companies haven't been able to use it jamey tucker explains in today's what the tech.
>>it has always been illegal for a phone company to block a phone call.
But the fcc proposal would protect wireless carriers and give them the freedom to aggressively block robocalls by using new technology.
Rocking all robocalls is unlikely, but there is hope with new technology but the carriers will now be able to use and the past year or so the spammer started spoofing number so that robo calls appear to be coming from nearby.
Well new technology called shake and stir could identify those spoof calls.
Here's how it works.
Your phone number would get a token or a certificate from your wireless carrier and then if a phone call is placed using your number the wireless carrier would verify that is coming from your phone.
If it isn't the carrier could block that call and some wireless companies are using algorithms to identify spoof calls recognizing a bake of number suddenly making thousands of calls in a short time or if they detect that the numbers making calls are getting a lot of quick hang-ups from the people answering with the fcc proposal carriers could been blocked those calls by default well there will never be a silver bullet to wear will never get another robo call our best hope is at
