Spam calls to your iPhone are an annoying distraction and — as many folks would say — a violation of your privacy. But you don’t have to live with them if you use Incogni.
Use Incogni to stop spam robocalls and protect your identity
It’s not hard to block a spam caller on your iPhone, but going into Recents and clicking on Block this Caller only blocks calls coming from that one phone number.
Alternatively, you can set up your iPhone to send all unknown callers straight to voicemail, but that doesn’t help much, either. You’ll still be getting the calls.
Stop those who collect and sell your data
There’s a far better approach: preventing spam callers from getting your contact information in the first place. Spammers often buy your information from data brokers, companies that collect people’s personal data and sell it. That sort of data collection happens online all the time.
But laws require data brokers to stop collecting and selling your data if you ask. The trouble is, asking data brokers to stop hoovering up your data and cashing in on it can take a lot of legwork — often more than 300 hours’ worth to get your info off databases just once, according to estimates.
And even if you do it, data brokers can add you back into their databases after a certain amount of time passes. So your work would never end, along with all the time taken and the frustration mounted.
Incogni sends opt-out requests for you
Fortunately, an easier way to stop data brokers from collecting and selling your data exists.
Created by cybersecurity company Surfshark, Incogni’s automated personal information removal service finds the data brokers most likely to deal in your personal data. Then it fires off wave after wave of opt-out requests for you.
In other words, Incogni jumps through data companies’ hoops and makes them leave you alone, without forcing you to waste untold hours. All you need to do is sign up and grant permission for Incogni to go to work.
Incogni also will deal with extra data broker interactions like rejection appeals, so you don’t have to do anything. And the best part is that Incogni restarts the whole process every three months to keep your data out of circulation.
