How To Activate The New Spam Protection Feature On Android

We all know that email has been associated with spam messages almost constantly. Still, over the years, it has evolved simply to infect internet users’ systems. But, hold on, emails are not only the hiding place for spam, as spam can also reside in SMS inboxes.

Google is fully aware of this, and now it has decided to end it. Android has already launched a new security system for all users that will help them end the arrival of spam on any Android device.

This new functionality will prevent these unwanted messages from entering our Android devices. In this way, little by little, users are getting a new protection system that is implemented directly in the well-known Messages apps for Android.

However, we all must bear in mind that for all this to work in the best way, the messages that we receive through this communication system must be sent to Google itself, which certainly will not please everyone, especially those who look closely at everything related to their privacy.
