Can I block spam text messages from email addresses?

2020-02-24, 16:08 PM

I have a Moto G7 Power. I am constantly inundated by spam text messages that originate from email addresses. It's simple to block texts from phone numbers but there doesn't appear to be any way to block texts that come from email addresses.

 

My old Samsung allowed you to filter out texts that contained certain character strings, so adding .com/.edu/.biz/etc to that list was a backhanded way to accomplish the task. Again, I can find no way to filter texts by character strings with my Moto.

 

I'm hoping someone can point out a fix that I've overlooked.

Solved! See the solution

Hi DougM54,

 

You can only block a specific contact/phone number/email address individually but there's no option to filter messages from unknown senders and block unwanted messages. Same goes with filtering out texts from those senders you mentioned. I haven't either seen this an option with the apps I tried so far. Thanks for your feedback on this. 

 

Best regards,

Hi Rich, Thanks for your reply. It sent me back to my phone for some more searching and I found what I was looking for. Being able to block individual email addresses is better than nothing. Thanks! DougM54
