So you can avoid receiving FaceTime video calls from strangers
Apple has a feature that allows its users to block attempts by strangers to communicate with them via FaceTime
Spam calls are a common nuisance in our digital age, and this also applies to FaceTime, Apple's video calling service. Although FaceTime is a great way to keep in touch with friends and family, unwanted calls can be intrusive and disruptive.
Fortunately, there are several options available to block these unwanted calls on FaceTime. First, you can set your device to only allow calls from people in your contact list.
To do this, go to the FaceTime settings on your iOS device or Mac and turn on the “Only allow calls from contacts” option. In this way, you will only be able to receive calls from those contacts that you have previously added.
If someone continues to call you unwanted, you can block their number. To do this, go to the Phone app on your iOS device and look for the incoming call in your call log. Tap the “I” button next to the number and select “Block this caller”. You can also block FaceTime numbers from the FaceTime app on your iOS device or Mac. Once you block someone, they won't be able to call you or send you FaceTime messages.
It's important to note that FaceTime only allows video calls with people who are in your contact list. Therefore, it is not possible to make video calls with unknown contacts through the app.
Unwanted calls, also known as call spam, can be a nuisance and problem for many mobile device users. These calls may come from unknown numbers or numbers that have been identified as spam by users or by caller identification services.
Spam calls can be a form of phishing or scam, where the goal is to obtain personal or financial information from the user. They can also be used for advertising or marketing purposes, interrupting users' personal or work time.
Although blocking unwanted numbers or contacts is an effective way to protect yourself from these calls, spammers can use different numbers or mask their identity to avoid being blocked. Also, some users may receive a high volume of spam calls, which can be very annoying and invasive.
To combat this problem, many phone service providers and mobile apps have developed spam caller identification and blocking solutions. These services use artificial intelligence and databases to automatically identify and block known spam numbers and offer personalized blocking options for users.
