About Spam Text Blocking

You asked for it! We Listened!  The Nomorobo Mobile App now filters SMS Spam Text Messages!  


iOS 11 has added a new SMS filtering feature that allows you to automatically filter spam text messages in the Messages App.  Simply activate the feature through the Nomorobo App, and follow the instructions provided.  


When you open the Messages app once again, you’ll see your messages are filtered into two tabs: one for “iMessage & SMS”, and one for “SMS Junk”. You won’t receive notifications when messages arrive and are put into the “SMS Junk” tab, although you can still go tap the tab and look through the messages to confirm no real messages were marked as junk, if you like.


When you receive an SMS message, your iPhone will send the sender’s phone number or email address and the contents of that SMS message to Nomorobo. This allows Nomorobo to analyze the contents of text messages and proactively block new spammers based on message content rather than simply blocking messages from a list of phone numbers.  As time goes on, the SMS Text Blocking will get better and better.
