PrivacyStar Call Blocking Software Now Available in Canada

Comments

I didn’t know this but apparently March is Fraud Awareness Month in Canada. In conjunction with this announcement, PrivacyStar have let us know that their app is now available in Canada via App World. PrivacyStar allows users to report telemarketers to Canada’s Do Not Call Resitry, in the hopes of keeping everyone’s phone clean of unwanted calls.

See PrivacyStar in the BlackBerryCool Store for more information.

    Let me also add that I use the Do not call list for Canada here https://www.lnnte-dncl.gc.ca/index-eng this site allows you to submit numbers that you want removed from caller lists. I have had no issue with it even though people say they sell this list, I dont believe they do personally. Remember this only blocks your number for 3 years but you can extend it to 5 years if you check your number you can click extend which will push it to 5 years. Just set a yearly reminder to keep doing it to be safe.

    There is nothing better then someone calling that's a telemarketer and you can stop them in their tracks asking how they got your number because you are on the do not call list and their company is in violation of the DNCL Act and you would like to speak to their manager. For some reason they never call back :) Please note that newspapers are exempt for this list.
