Stopping Robocalls: Voice Providers Required to Implement Anti-Robocall Tech

After an estimated 22 billion robocalls sent in 2021 and years of complaints to the Federal Communications Commission, telecommunications providers AT&T, Verizon, T-Mobile and Comcast will be required to step up their efforts to address this issue by June 30th to implement a technology called Stir/Shaken.

What’s Stir/Shaken?

According to CNET:

“Stir” stands for “secure telephone identity revisited,” and “Shaken” for “signature-based handling of asserted information using tokens.” Stir is the technical protocol, and Shaken is the framework by which calls can be tracked in the new robocall mitigation database.

The way it works is that Stir/Shaken technology ensures that calls traveling through phone networks have their caller ID “signed” as legitimate by originating carriers and validated by other carriers before the calls reach you. In short, the technology authenticates a phone call’s origin and makes certain the information on the Caller ID matches.
