Globe blocks over 138M spam, scam messages in the first half of 2022

Ayala-led Globe Telecom continues to push its efforts to create a safe cyberspace for the public as it announced that it blocked 138 million text-based scam and spam messages from January 2022 to June 15, 2022.

The firm shared that its anti-spam blocking tool reached its peak in May when it filtered 74.48 million unwanted messages. Moreover, Globe also blocked 12,877 mobile numbers between January and May of this year.

These results are achieved through the help of complaints sent by users via Globe’s Stop Spam online portal.

Globe currently has a 24/7 security operations center with 100 cybersecurity personnel that monitor and identify attacks or breaches.

The company also consistently reminds the public to stay vigilant against cyberattacks through various campaigns, including its #MakeITsafePH initiative.
