Are you tired of receiving unknown callers, which are usually spam calls on WhatsApp? There’s a tool that allows you to automatically reject them without having to battle them through fire and water, from the lowest dungeon to the highest peak.

According to a WhatsApp blog post, “Silence Unknown Callers is designed to give you more privacy and control over your incoming calls It helps to automatically screen out spam, scams, and calls from unknown people for increased protection.”
