When we talk about Privacy Star, a couple of questions quickly arise. Firstly, how can it be that privacy features don't come bundled on your Android. Oh, yes, some default user interfaces let an option or two, but either carriers or manufacturers seem really interested in leaving the chance of blocking your phone beyond robbery and losses. Secondly, why would you need a privacy app. In the end, if you don't want to be found you well might shut your device off.
In short, what Privacy Star brings is a long list of interesting features. It fetches to its database for unknown numbers, it lets to report spam or telemarketing numbers and, as if this wasn't enough, it can block whole area codes or just create a black list of forbidden numbers able to reach you. Possibilities are nearly endless, as you can leave PrivacyStar on its own to block undesired calls -included debt collection agencies; assign automated polite SMS replies; reject all numbers not previously saved in your agenda or even search through its directory assistance in case you need to find something or someone.
This app comes with a 7 day trial, which won't be enough as undoubtedly it's an app that gets better every day you have it installed. If we haven't rated it with a solemn 5/5 it's due to the lack of even more creative features: given the insane amount of permissions it needs, it might easily add fake incoming calls and, if it's not much asking, include some shortcuts to sound and notification settings; GPS related features (e.g., block my mother when I'm in my gf's home)... Be as it may, absolutely worth you give it a try.

Comments and ratings for PrivacyStar Text & Call Block
Worked fine before recent update.
About half of the phone numbers looked up gave me an id. Several cell phone numbers did not.
Not worth one penny .
I don't know why its listed as a free app, crappy app is even more expensive than others that do the same
Works well thus far
