Why Are My Calls Being Labelled As Spam?

Why Is My Number Marked As Spam?

To combat the rise of robocalling, the Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence Act was passed. This act requires phone companies to implement call authentication technology, which helps verify that the calls people receive are actually coming from the numbers they claim to be from. Unfortunately, this has caused some legitimate business numbers to be flagged due to repeated calling being one of the symptoms defined in spam calls.

How Can I Remove the “Spam” Label?

To begin the process of having “Spam” removed from your number, first begin by registering your number at https://freecallerregistry.com/fcr/.
