As the Federal Communications Commission wages war on robocalls, phone carriers are working together to ensure their customers are protected from scams.

AT&T and T-Mobile announced today calls across both networks would be verified, a step toward meeting the industry-wide SHAKEN/STIR standard.

SHAKEN/STIR verifies the authenticity of a call and alerts you if it is suspected as a spoof or scam. The call is verified at the network level and a symbol such as a check mark will appear to let you know if the call is not spoofed. With AT&T and T-Mobile, you will see “Call Verified” on your screen when you get a call.
