Pre-Scan on SMS/Call Feature on Microsoft Phone?
My sister wants to enable Call/SMS Block to block unknown/unwanted numbers from calling, and it has popped up a message. "This application allows you to block unwanted phone calls from phone numbers defined by you. By using this application, you agreed that Microsoft Mobile may pre-scan your incoming text messages. No information regarding your messages is sent to Microsoft Mobile or any third party". This is her first time using a Microsoft Mobile Phone and she wants to know what does that message mean by pre-scan? she also wants to know why a pre-scan maybe needed to be done?
It will look to see if you are receiving text messages from the blocked contact. If so, then you will not receive the text message alert. Microsoft will block the text just like they block the call from the contact.
I don't have the option of "call + filter" although I have an updated version?
Want to block a number. Cannot as don't have the "call+ filter" service despite having Windows 8.1
You now have Block + Filter. Check your Privacy section and then the background apps to enable this feature again.
