How to avoid spam calls on your Android smartphone
Mobile phone’s primary purpose was to enable users to make and receive phone calls. However, with the advancement of technology, the use-case of smartphones has emerged and now there are several different ways to get in touch with someone.
Everyone must have faced the issue of spam calls on their devices but thankfully, there are now many ways to deal with it. In this guide, we will show you how you can set up your Android phone to receive only “verified calls.”
