Call filter plus by Verizon, What is it? and How to get it for free?

Call filter plus is an amazing feature introduced by Verizon in 2019. It helps you to Screen/ filter your receiving calls and block spam with their free Verizon Call Filter app.

In the current world, we all are familiar with spam phone calls. Personally, per week I receive around five spam or marketing calls. This was an issue for a long time. However, due to technological development we can easily block these unwanted, unrelated calls.
