Unwanted calls are annoying, whether they’re just a nuisance or a scam. In the UK, 84% of people will have received a nuisance call; but you no longer have to fight alone. TPS Protect helps you identify, avoid and report nuisance and scam calls, showing you the type of business and Trust Score for each caller. The app also lets you look-up numbers, easily report unwanted cold calls and create personalised approved or blocked caller lists.

Stand up. Join the growing movement of people fighting back. TPS Protect is powered by its users, with every nuisance and scam call that is blocked, reported or complained about helping to determine how trusted that number is. So your voice matters.

Key features:
- Trust Score: Incoming calls appear on your phone with a Trust Score, from 1 for a suspected scam caller to 5 for a trusted caller, so you decide whether to answer. Only 38% of people strongly believe they can detect a phone scam!

- Call Categories: Callers are categorised into one of over 20 types of business or calls (including PPI, Accident Claims and Charities) helping you identify who might be calling you.

- Reporting: Your reports help us identify nuisance or scam calls and the sooner we get reports the sooner we can help others, so your voice matters.

- Number Lookup: Lets you to look up a number that you may have missed, or even received on your landline, to know whether it is safe to call them back.

- Call Blocking: Divert unwanted calls straight to voicemail, whether it’s according their category or Trust Score.

- Your Privacy: We value your privacy as much as you do, which is why we only ask you for the personal information we need and will never take or use your contact list.

- TPS Registration: You can quickly and easily register your mobile number with the Telephone Preference Service (TPS).

About us:
TPS Protect was developed in partnership by First Orion and the DMA. First Orion provides services directly to consumers and to telecoms carriers, in both the US and the UK, providing protection to more than 75 million people. Every month, First Orion identifies and blocks millions of unwanted phone calls while delivering hundreds of thousands of complaints against offending callers directly to the relevant Regulator – which leads to convictions for the offenders.

The DMA is a UK trade association for the one-to-one marketing industry - those companies that speak directly to their customers and those companies that help them achieve this. The Telephone Preference Service (TPS) was created by the DMA as a voluntary initiative in 1996 to help protect consumers from the scourge of nuisance and scam calls.

You have to pay to help them

The Marksy

You have to pay 99p per month for this to work and then they ask you to help them - cheek. Better off just going to the “I” part of the recent call and then the bottom part of the screen you press block caller - much better and free.

Works as described


I downloaded this app as I get a lot of scam calls. It works. Tells me if the call is a suspected scam. Is free too

Worst ever

Taken money without providing service. Going to complaint. Waste of time.
