Verizon announced that its Call Filter app now includes Neighborhood Filter, which allows one to silence and send neighborhood spoofing calls to voicemail, along with those in any other area codes and prefix combinations that could be suspect. This launch is part of company's ongoing commitment to protect one from unwanted calls. This new feature, available to Call Filter Free and Call Filter Plus customers using most Verizon-purchased smartphones, can be activated in the Call Filter app under Block Filters in the Management section. Call Filter Free app users can block up to five additional neighborhood entries on top of their own, and Call Filter Plus customers can add up to ten additional neighborhood entries. Customers can access step-by-step instructions to activate the Neighborhood Spoofing feature in Call Filter on either iOS or Android. The Neighborhood Filter will block all calls that fall within that neighborhood, even legitimate ones, unless the phone number is saved in one's contacts. If the filter blocks a call one wanted to receive, one can select Ignore Filter in the post-call details in the Call Filter app and it will not be blocked again. The filters can be removed at any time by tapping Remove next to the neighborhood in the Other Filters section of the Block Management page. The Neighborhood Filter is the latest enhancement to Call Filter, which gives one the power to block or avoid many of these robocalls at no cost. While Call Filter auto blocks high risk (Potential Fraud) calls, one may choose to block all spam risk levels in order to silence spam callers from reaching one's device with just a few taps on the free Call Filter app or by going to My Verizon. In addition to the free spam protection benefits of Verizons free Call Filter app, postpaid customers can upgrade to Call Filter Plus for $2.99 per month, which offers more features, including: Caller Name ID; Spam LookUp; Personal Block List; Spam Risk Meter.
