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).

Free trial:

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.

Avoid - crashes your phone


First it doesn’t seem to flag known spam numbers. Second when I try to report a spam number having put in all the details it says that it can’t be reported. Finally when I enabled call screening via TPS in call settings my data connection stopped working, tried hard reset but no good, finally disabled call screening and data worked again.
Don’t understand why it would interfere with mobile data but it did.
So unreliable and doesn’t recognise spam numbers.

Confused and disappointed


For starters. The first number Ive reported was from a rather scary phone call where someone had ALOT of my details but was blatantly a scam, and according to the app it’s got a 4/5 score and says it’s had no bad reports, when I’ve reported it so it does! Secondly I’m supposed to get 60 days free and it’s already asking for cash 3 minutes after installing...

Developer Response

Hi Fiery_Fi
Thanks for reporting a scam call, your complaints help us improve how we score offending numbers. We're hoping to have a new version of TPS Protect that will improve how we assign a Trust Score to a number out soon!

Sometimes users may not receive their 60 day free trial due to a bug. This can be remedied by going into the TPS Protect > Settings and pressing 'Check Now' under 'Have you got your Free Trial'.

If you have any further issues we're happy to help at



This is the most rubbish app ever. Even numbers that I know I have reported via the app and blocked are still showing as not having any negative information recorded against them in the number search! Reporting phone numbers to TPS or to the ICO seems to be effectively useless as these rogue companies continue to operate outside of the law and have no regard for TPS or the rules of GDPR.
