More than a billion scams have been blocked from Aussies’ phones in the past year, following the introduction of a new industry code to disrupt scam activity.

New data released by the Australian Communications and Media Authority (ACMA) found more than 256 million scam calls and 85 million scam texts were blocked by telcos in the past quarter alone.

This was a 33 per cent increase in the total number of calls blocked in the previous quarter, sparing Aussies from more than 1.4 billion scam calls and 257 million scam texts in total for the year.

Under the new code, telcos are required to identify, trace and block suspected SMS scams, and to conduct checks on organisations using text-based sender IDs. Carriage service providers are also required to report to the ACMA blocked scam calls and SMSs during each quarter.
