WMC Global and UScellular have teamed up to help protect customers from SMS spam.
As text messaging continues to be a dominant consumer touchpoint, there is a growing need to empower users to take action against unwanted messages and help prevent them in the future. In response, UScellular now offers SpamResponse, a free mobile app and website designed by WMC Global, a fifteen-year leader in mobile threat intelligence, that enables customers to easily report potential text message spam.
SpamResponse combines ease-of-use and effectiveness without compromise, allowing customers to report spam messages without having to contact customer service or follow a complicated process. Importantly, SpamResponse doesn’t collect any private customer data, making the reporting simple, secure, and anonymous.
“Millions of spam messages reach consumers globally every day, eroding the user experience and posing significant security and privacy concerns,” explains Ian Matthews, President and CEO of WMC Global. He adds, “SpamResponse empowers users to take action directly on their smartphones, allowing UScellular and WMC Global to assess potential threats while improving user experience across the board.”
“At UScellular, we are committed to helping customers avoid and prevent unwanted and sometimes deceptive messages,” said Courtland Madock, Vice President of Marketing at UScellular. “Teaming up with an industry leader like WMC Global allows us to provide our customers stronger protection against spam, and this app is a great addition to our portfolio of solutions to help stop unwanted calls and messages.”
In response to reported spam, WMC Global and UScellular investigate fraudulent websites, creating a safer and better customer experience. The SpamResponse app has been made available on many UScellular Android devices and can be downloaded from the Google Play store or the App Store for iOS devices.
