According to Globe, its dedicated cybersecurity team has deactivated 5,670 confirmed spam numbers and successfully blocked close to 71 million spam messages in 2021 alone. The telco giant's teams are part of a larger internal Cybersecurity and Data Privacy group that responds to spam complaints and proactively deals with these wrongdoers.

Confirmed and detected scammers and spammer numbers are terminated and blocked using Globe's own systems including the Stop Spam report website. Globe also teamed up with major universal and commercial banks as well as Lazada and Shopee to minimize spam, scams, and phishing activities. These partner organizations report fake numbers, spoofed sender names, and websites that Globe blocks.

Globe also encourages users to do their own part in protecting themselves on a device level. Users can use the "Messages" app by Google as their default Android SMS messenger since it has a highly effective built-in spam filter.

Globe is well aware of the hassles and troubles that such text messaging scams can cause, and it is working hard to ensure that all customers have a spam-free experience.
