Industry Research : Just Over 4 Billion Robocalls in January Mark 3.7% Monthly Increase, Says YouMail Robocall Index

#contactcenterworld

Americans received just over 4 billion robocalls in January, an increase of approximately 3.7% over December. In January, robocalls averaged 129.5 million calls/day, or roughly 1,500 calls/second, down 2% from 124.8 million calls/day and 1,445 calls/second in December. While it is very early in the year, this is a pace of over 48 billion robocalls for 2021, which would be greater than every year except 2019.

These latest monthly figures come from YouMail, a robocall blocking app and call protection service for mobile phones.

"Robocall volumes appear to be resuming their slow journey back toward their pre-pandemic levels," said YouMail CEO Alex Quilici. "As call centers continue to open more widely, it's not surprising that robocalls are increasing."

January 2020 Saw An Increase in Scam Calls

In January, scam calls and telemarketing calls combined continued to account for roughly 60% of the month's total robocall volume, similar to past months. Unfortunately, the total number of scam and telemarketing calls exceeded 2.3 billion calls for the month, a very substantial number of likely unwanted and/or illegal calls.
