Nomorobo online anti-robocall weapon

Boot Camp feature for Wednesday, March 12, 2014

A new tool in the never ending battle against robo calls.   I’m Fred Fishkin with technology BootCamp, a report on gadgets and gear.   How often are you interrupted by unwanted sales calls made by robotic dialers?    Aaron Foss is the creator of a free service called Nomorobo….designed to put an end to the calls…

“So Nomorobo uses a part of the phone system that lets your phone ring on the Nomorobo server at the same time.  And so what we’re able to do then is we look at who is calling you and if it’s a robo caller or a telemarketer, we hang up for you.  So it works really, really simple.  You just do a quick one time set up and then you’re protected from all these annoying calls that always seem to come in at dinner time.”

It is designed to work with most Internet based phone services…but not yet with mobile or traditional landlines.   Again Nomorobo is free for individuals and is being sold to business customers.   You can find us at BootCamp.com.  I’m Fred Fishkin.
