AT&T said Tuesday it will start to automatically block robocalls and alert customers of suspected spam calls for free.

The company already offers a “Call Protect” service, but customers have to manually opt-in. Now AT&T customers will be automatically enrolled, the company announced.

New customers will have the service automatically and existing customers will have it added to their accounts “over the coming months.”

Customers who want to decline the service will be able to opt-out.
