On August 22, 2023, at the New World Hotel in Makati City and live streamed via Facebook, Whoscall successfully launched a forum spreading its advocacy towards a Scam-Free Pilipinas.
The event was participated by a panel of cybersecurity experts, policymakers, and notable personalities with firsthand scam experiences including the award-winning broadcast journalist Karen Davila, the “Geeky Tech Dad” Gian Viterbo, and youth leader Aileen Montalbo. The event shed light on the alarming rise of fraudulent calls and messages in the Philippines. It also tackled the measures we should now collectively take to address this pressing issue.
Picture this scenario: You’re about to start your day. Your phone rings and displays an unknown number. You hesitate to answer, unsure whether it’s an important call from a relative or a colleague, or just another telemarketing call or scammer attempting to take advantage of you. What could have been a peaceful morning is now filled with anxiety.
Whoscall, one of the leading call identification and spam-blocking apps, aims to provide a solution to this alarming crisis. This app identifies unknown numbers, blocks spam calls, and scans suspicious URLs from messages to provide comprehensive mobile protection. Armed with a range of innovative AI features and an internationally acclaimed reputation, Whoscall has finally arrived in the country to enhance our nation’s mobile security.
Sounds familiar? This is the situation faced by many Filipinos nowadays. Some of our countrymen have faced even more distressing experiences. Livelihoods and life savings have been lost due to the growing prevalence of scams. What’s worse? Scammers continue to discover new methods to deceive people.
