T-Mobile US, AT&T work together to give customers new call authentication protections

Wednesday 14 August 2019 | 15:49 CET | News
T-Mobile US said it began the rollout of cross-network call authentication based on SHAKEN/STIR standards in another big step toward protecting consumers from unwanted robocalls. SHAKEN/STIR technology lets consumers know that an incoming call is really coming from the number listed on the caller ID display – not a spoofed robocall or scammer. The FCC recommended SHAKEN/STIR standards to digitally validate phone calls. The acronym stands for signature-based Handling of Asserted Information Using toKENs (SHAKEN) and the Secure Telephone Identity Revisited (STIR).
