Almost everyone has had a cell phone call from an unknown number. The question always arises: Do you answer or do you ignore the constant ringing? It could be important!
The disappointment is often great: something is advertised or you are asked to take part in a survey. In the worst case, real scammers are at the other end.
CHIP would like to spare you this uncertainty in the future. In cooperation with the service provider Tellows, we offer you a unique call protection, thanks to which you can recognize the telephone terror beforehand. You don’t even need to install an app!
How does call protection from CHIP work?
The CHIP call protection is about knowing who is on the other end. Of course there are thousands of different phone numbers that could call there – but in fact individual companies are responsible for a large part of the telephone terror. You can integrate these top 75 numbers into your contact list with our download.
Don’t worry, no individual entries are created that clutter up your phone book. Only an entry called “CHIP call protection” is added. If one of the numbers then calls you, you will know immediately who it is from the identification.
By the way: Tellows is also available as a separate app for download from CHIP.
How to install the CHIP do not disturb
In order to quickly install the CHIP call protection, it is best to call up the download page directly via your smartphone.
- Tap the download button
- Open saved CFV file
- Save / allow the new contact in the phone book
You will then find the new contact in the phone book. If someone calls you, you will see the name of the company and behind it a category such as “aggressive advertising”, “raffle” or “opinion research”.
A notice: The list of the CHIP do not disturb is always updated. If you run the download again on iOS, the old contact must first be removed from the phone book.
