Hi guys,
I am not sure if this is the right place to post my comment, if not, let me know... I have a client that is getting tons of spam calls spam text on an iPhone, what is the best practice or software that can block some of the stuff or is there any? She is already when they call or text come in she is blocking the number, but I’m not sure what else you can do if anything, would love some feedback… Thanks 😀

I also have a client today on the same lines... her phone & Facebook etc selling her data, anything we can point clients to, to help with this?  a service? to clean up, I think I have seen one before, but can’t remember their name...

from my client too “I’m googling in now. How to prevent data bases from collecting your data and selling it or putting your info on the internet. I’ve already deleted 2. It helps prevent hacking, telemarketers, and selling your info.
I got hacked again on FB. I deleted my account. Has happened like 15 times. I’ve been getting a lot of weird calls/ emails/ texts. One person on Facebook impersonating me was from Russia when I researched it.
I also found out that experian, Equifax, Transunion will give out your info when requested by these companies unless you freeze your accounts. “

any feedback on this too would be great 😊
