Can block overseas from calling through whatsapp video?

Post by abbby » Sun, 30 May 2021 5:55 pm

It's quite scary, been getting calls from Nigeria on Whatsapp video. Is there an option to block whatsapp videos from overseas?

It’s not possible to deactivate the voice or video call feature. What I do is either decline the call or let it ring until it stops and then block the number.

Any way to set up premium phone lines so all the spam calls go to those and we earn money?

That would be amazing….

Good. From what I understand, picking up the phone call (although free) will let the caller know that the number is active. Once the scammers are aware of this, they will add your phone number to a number of other spam call lists, where you will be harassed to no end.
