We rolled out a new, simplified onboarding flow! Here is what you can expect:
1. Phone number verification: first things first, you will be prompted to enter your number and then verify it using a code that is texted to you.
2. Allow notifications - you will then be prompted to allow notifications, which you will do by confirming on the in app prompt. This will allow us to notify you when we have blocked calls on your behalf.
3. Answer a series of quick questions - you will then be asked a number of questions that will help us better understand how you can get the most out of Robokiller. All of these are optional and can be skipped!
- What do you use this number for?
- How often do you get important calls from unsaved numbers?
- How often do you get spam texts?
- What's your age?
These next and last few steps can also be skipped, but we highly recommend you do these now to make sure that the app is able to start blocking calls and texts immediately!
4. Turn on call blocking - this step will allow Robokiller to be the default call blocking app on your device. In order to do this you will:
- Go to your phone's Settings -> Phone -> Call Blocking & Identification
- Once there you'll toggle on Robokiller - 1 of 2 and Robokiller - 2 of 2 under Call Identification Apps
5. Allow access to contacts - this helps us ensure that your contacts are never blocked! Simply follow the on screen prompt to enable this.
6. Set up SMS blocking - this allows Robokiller to become your spam text filter. Once this is enabled, you'll be able to see Spam texts by going into your Messages app, clicking "Filters" on the top left, and then going into the the newly created "Junk folder"
- Go to your phone's Settings -> Messages -> Unknown & Spam (under Message Filtering)
- Once there you'll toggle on Filter Unknown Senders and select Robokiller
Your app is now ready to start blocking spam!
