Spam protection can't be a bad thing, can it? If you send a spam report manually, it still submits the full message to Google, including phone numbers of both sender and recipient as well as the message's contents. The spam filter was first spotted by Android Police and is located in the Android Messages Settings menu. That's why she found an alternative way to support new functions and features in phones from third-party brands that runs on the "green robot". It seems like nowadays, all you need to do is open a new email account, and there will already be spam in there waiting for you.

More information is awaited as to how Google will be able to tackle number spoofing and other several other malicious techniques used by cybercriminals. It's actually nearly too easy to send an SMS, because you don't need to know the person who owns the line - you simply need to know the number exists. If you send a report, it includes the spammers last 10 texts, but none of your replies. The advertising message will not even appear, that is, they no way could disturb the user's mobile device.

Google still hasn't made anything official regarding the new spam protection feature.

Data about spam messages is to improve the search engine giant's ability to "detect future spam for users".

Do you have spam protection showing up in your Android Messages app? You can do it from the pop-up or by heading to Settings Advanced Spam protection.

This is a feature we learned about earlier in the year, and it is now starting to roll out to handsets.
