Blacklist and Whitelist
You can create, edit and delete filtering in Blacklist and Whitelist tabs.
All unwanted messages that fly under the Blacklist rules will be stored in a separate Junk SMS tab. Whitelist messages, in their turn, will be displayed in a native Messenger app.
You can literally create any rule to filter as much spam as possible - from easiest “contains’ conditions and up to regular expressions and wildcard syntax magic. You can also use predefined rules to stop spam texts from short numbers and SMS containing links. Look for tips on creating Blacklist and Whitelist rules in the FAQ section.
To ensure your privacy and safety, SpamHound SMS blocker does not require access to the content of your messages.
Link the app to one of your social accounts to backup the rules and use them on other devices to block text messages.

Ratings and Reviews
I like it when it works
I get annoying messages from gambling sites, so this sounded great. And it works... Sometimes.
I wish I understood why it works inconsistently. For example, I have a simple filter to blacklist messages that contain NBA. It always works in the rule checker but doesn't always work with real messages.
The one that didn't work today started with NBA.

This app is saving my sanity. Once you get the blacklist spams into the app, the spam emails almost stop completely. Hope it stays that way!

SpamHound does not have access to the content of your messages, sender information, bank pins, and other personal information. The app requires access only for the extension that processes messages. At the same time, the extension cannot save received messages and information about the sender’s number or transfer them to the third parties. Thus, your information is unavailable to third parties including SpamHound app.
