PrivacyStar Launches New App To Address Rising Calling/Texting Abuses

CONWAY, Ark., June 18, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- PrivacyStar, today announced the availability of a new PrivacyStar™ application that gives Android owners the power to effectively address growing consumer concerns regarding telemarketer abuses and rampant text spamming as well as providing real-time caller ID for any incoming call.

PrivacyStar shows exactly who is calling and texting, while giving users the power to block and possibly report anyone abusing their phone numbers – all from the PrivacyStar CallCenter, which provides new powerful and easily accessible features to the incoming call screen. Whether the call or text is from an unknown party, harassing ex, aggressive telemarketer or obnoxious debt collector, PrivacyStar provides users with the tools to take control of their phones and privacy in one easy-to-use application, before, during or after the call. 

PrivacyStar for is now available for free download at the Google Play Store.

PrivacyStar recognizes consumers are harassed on their smartphones. Forbes estimates there are over 100 billion spam calls a year and consumers received roughly 4.5 billion spam texts last year, according to Ferris Research. Also, in 2012 text spam tripled compared with 2011 levels, according to the AARP.

PrivacyStar is the first and only app to offer call and text blocking with the ability to report abusive callers as well as bring the same real-time caller ID service that has been available on landline phones for over 20 years to Android phones. PrivacyStar displays the name and number of the incoming caller – while the phone is ringing – even if the caller is not in the smartphone's contact list. In addition, PrivacyStar's new application allows users to block, return an automated message, view caller history or add the caller to their contacts. PrivacyStar's CallCenter ensures users have the necessary tools to avoid unwanted calls and manage all other calls and texts quickly and easily.
