Kudos to Verizon for being the first major wireless provider to offer a tool that can combat robocallers. The pace of robocallers has progressively worsened over the past year. Most people don’t answer calls they do not recognize, as it is most likely a robocaller. The amount of calls being made by these operators worldwide is in the millions of calls. In hopes that even a small percentage of those being called answer and engage and fall for the scam.
Verizon has implemented on its network the new technology labelled STIR/SHAKEN STIR (Secure Telephone Identity Revisited) and SHAKEN (Signature-based Handling of Asserted information using toKENs) standards
