Do you look at the calendar on your phone and think, “HOW is it still 2020?” Or are you unable to do that because of the obnoxious robocalls and texts dropping onto your screen? As if we don’t have enough going on this year, it seems like the uninvited notifications from spammers, scammers, and randos will never cease (there were over 58 billion calls in 2019 alone!). Give yourself the gift of one less thing to deal with and download Call Control

With the help of their AI-based technology, you can give robocallers, your ex, or your racist uncle the boot. Call Control has helped block over one billion calls so far, halting everything from annoying telemarketers to despicable identity thieves for more than 12 million users.

How do they do this? Call Control leverages CommunityIQ reports and do not call complaints to block spam and unwanted calls/text messages, and it offers a personal blacklist for you to use as you wish. Even new spammers don’t stand a chance, because Call Control’s tech kicks them to the curb once its users start flagging numbers—subscribers are updated across the system in minutes. As a bonus, Call Control, which was featured on NBC News, Fox Business, and AARP, boasts reverse phone number lookup and enhanced caller ID so you’ll always know who the jerks are.

 Even better news? You know you can rely on Call Control, thanks to its sparkling reviews on both the Apple App Store (five stars overall from 820 ratings) and Google Play store (five stars overall from 97,000 ratings).

 You may have heard of similar services before, but chances are you literally LOLed when you saw how much they cost—and that was before you landed in the Covid Economy. With this deal on a Call Control Premium subscription for a year, you’ll be able to bring some much-needed peace and quiet to your life for just $19.99, a savings of 33%.  

Prices subject to change.
