How to whitelist your phone number?

Phone number reputation: Registering legitimate outbound call #

In an effort to protect end users against unwanted calls, carriers, and consumer application providers have been increasingly blocking or labeling calls that they feel fit typical robocalling campaign characteristics, such as high call volumes and short or unanswered calls. When their own analytics indicate potentially unwanted traffic, carriers may respond by blocking calls or inserting “Spam Likely”, “Telemarketer”, “Fraud Likely”, or other similar labels to display on the handset.

This kind of call analysis is difficult because while fraudulent robocalls often do show some of these characteristics, so can many legitimate use cases, including school closing notifications, weather alerts, and patient reminders, that recipients want and have opted-in to receive. Still, when viewed en-masse at the network level, they can look like illegal robocalling.

Registration Process – White List Your Phone Number #

To ensure that your outbound calls aren’t miscategorized as unwanted by downstream carriers or applications, we highly encourage you to proactively register legitimate outbound calling use cases using the Free Caller Registry portal.

Acknowledgment & Registration Process #

You can start the registration process but before filling in the different fields you need to acknowledge the details provided. After the acknowledgment you need to start filling in the different information such as the numbers or the Whole Excel sheet of the Numbers, Call Category, Name, Company Phone, Email, and Calling Company Name, Address.

Continued Process #

The rest of the details include the Calling Company URL, your Service Provide, the number of monthly calls you do, and feedback that you received from Specific Customers.

Submit your details #

After submitting you will get your Feedback ID, along with submitting more requests in case it doesn’t go through. This registration portal may not cover other consumer applications responsible for call labeling or blocking. Additional guidance from the FCC can be found in the Tips to Avoid Having Legitimate Calls Blocked.

Confirmation Email: #

You will soon receive the confirmation email that says your number is free of Scam, Fraud labels, but in case your number is reported by more customers it can be labeled Nuisance and you won’t be able to Call the number.

Once you register and submit the required information via the portal, the Analytics Engines will vet it and follow up with you directly. If your request is approved, it may take a few days for changes to your phone number(s) to go into effect. The registration process doesn’t guarantee that your calls won’t be blocked or labeled in the future, however, registration is intended to greatly reduce the risk of blocking or labeling.
