Thousands of people around the world have experienced more than once the well-known “SPAM calls”. These are calls, mostly made by companies or cybercriminals, in which they dial your number and the moment you answer, they automatically hang up on you.

In addition, by not identifying the number from which you are being dialed, you can suppose an emergency or an important matter. For that reason, here is a way to identify and block them.
