YouMail has stopped over 1 billion robocalls from ever being made — and counting.

The YouMail Robocall Index™ estimates monthly robocall volume in the US, as well as in various regions, and highlights the worst offenders. The index works by extrapolating the data collected from the many tens of millions of calls made each month to YouMail users.
