Verizon will offer free app to block annoying robocalls

Verizon is taking additional steps to block unwanted robocalls. 

According to Forbes, Verizon will soon offer free robocall blocking tools. The company already offers a blocking app costing $2.99 a month, but a free version is expected by the end of the month.

It's tapping into new verification technology that analyzes incoming calls.

Since last year, Verizon has identified nearly 300 million numbers linked to spam and robocalling.
