Scam Calls & SMS

As part of the SMS Filter capability, what will Telstra do?

Telstra’s SMS Filter capability:

i. May inspect the content and metadata of SMS messages which are intended to be received by the end user, including text, time, sender, number of messages sent, and recipient (“SMS content”);

ii. May use the SMS content to detect if an SMS message is scam; and

iii. Where an SMS message is identified as scam, may block that message before it reaches the intended recipient’s mobile phone (and any blocked messages will not be retrievable).
