The free tools, which were part of a previous $3-per-month Call Filter option in current plans, promise to stop robocalls once and for all. Verizon announced that beginning March, it will offer its third-party spam and robocalling protection features. The tools will be available to Verizon customers with compatible smartphones, including iPhone and Android devices.

Los Angeles Rams advance to Super Bowl 53
The Rams used that remaining time to drive down the field and kick a game-tying field goal. There's still plenty of time left in this contest, though.

If you are a Verizon subscriber, you will be able to use free spam alert and call blocking tools starting in March. The service also lets users report robocall numbers, which are added to Verizon's database of almost 300 million phone numbers known to engage in SMS spam and robocalls, to be blocked network-wide. If the score is above the threshold, the service replaces the Caller ID number or ID with "spam". Verizon said it alerted customers to a billion sketchy calls since. Verizon says that since the feature launched previous year, it has alerted users to almost a billion potentially malicious robocalls. We have committed to and support the new "STIR/SHAKEN" call authentication technology which will visually alert consumers to spoofed calls and we support legislation requiring service providers to deploy the STIR/SHAKEN call authentication technology. Since being a founding member two years ago, more than 20 other organizations have joined the initiative. Few robocallers get charged with illegal spoofing because the Truth in Caller ID Act defines "spoofing" narrowly.

We have to make sure that we just fight in each game like it's the last game and the boys did that. "We had to stay positive". The Brazilian hobbled off with a hamstring injury during the 4-3 win over Crystal Palace on Saturday.

If you're a Verizon subscriber and are exhausted of all the robocalls you may be getting, there's some good news for you. Verizon supports a simple rule that would make it illegal for any caller to use any phone number that it is not authorized to use.
