The deepest way is to reply “unsubscribe” to spam messages

With the development of technology, digital “gray production” is evolving with the development of technology. In modern society, if you want to avoid the problems caused by spam messages, it seems that only “disconnection” is the way to choose.

mobile phone users make complaints about micro-blog’s unsubscribed TD message, but still receive a text message on the phone. < / P > < p > in addition to wondering that it was useless to reply to the TD unsubscribe order according to the SMS prompt, he also simply called the nut mobile phone official and nut mobile phone customer service. < / P > < p > What’s interesting is that this matter has nothing to do with nut cell phones. After all, the push side of marketing SMS is not a mobile phone manufacturer, and it can only do some common chaotic blocking functions in the system to minimize this kind of junk SMS experience for users. However, the official authorities of nut mobile phone responded to the user with “survival desire” and said “I’m very sorry” to him. They thought that “the SMS screening function failed”. It is suggested that users should first use the function of mobile phone management harassment interception SMS filtering keywords to block key words. < / P > < p > under the background that the upstream telecom operators have been unable to cure the problem and there are a lot of stakeholders, the mobile phone manufacturers in recent years can be said to be a “clean flow” to eradicate junk SMS. < p > < p > Xiaomi, Huawei, oppo, vivo, nuts, Lenovo… Almost all domestic mobile phone brands have their own mobile phone management software, providing users with spam SMS, APP push and other harassment shielding rights and functions has become the mainstream. However, it is quite helpless that we still have a “just need” for SMS verification code and SMS notification from brand companies in our daily life, which has given junk SMS continuous living space, and there are still many “fish who miss the net”. < / P > < p > in addition, lazy users who don’t understand or don’t want to fiddle with mobile phone settings often don’t understand the setting steps of smart phone harassment and blocking, which makes the long-term spread of spam messages become a continuous normal. < / P > < p > it’s just quite surprising that there is still room for us to move the SMS “reply to TD unsubscribe” of various brands. When users really reply to TD unsubscribe by some SMS, the reply is useless and can still be received. < / P > < p > the logic of this matter is just like the harassing phone is hung up again and again, but it always comes back. The user is just a string of numbers in the possibility of business transformation path. < / P > < p > the marketing background function interface shared by netizen Justin Lee on Zhihu reveals the reason why marketing SMS reply to TD unsubscribe is useless. < / P > < p > first of all, the platform comes with functions such as wrong number filtering, duplicate number filtering, and empty number filtering, which means that in technology, as long as there is a corresponding phone number, the platform can push SMS at will, which has nothing to do with whether users reply back or interact with each other. < / P > < p > secondly, the intimate prompt of “it’s better not to exceed 200000 numbers for a single submission”, the function of periodic circular transmission, and the function of checking the screened words are also conspicuous. This explains why we have set the harassment shielding function of mobile phones, but still receive marketing short messages frequently. < / P > < p > obviously, the “ability” of the marketing SMS platform is constantly improving. In the case that the SMS function can not be completely blocked and the black SMS number is useless, the mainstream shielding method adopted by the major mobile phone housekeeping software is keyword shielding. However, the marketing SMS platform has become “one foot higher than the other”. < / P > < p > obviously, there is no function setting of “no more sending messages to users”. According to “insiders”, the users who reply to unsubscribe will probably send as usual. < / P > < p > when the number of SMS users is small, maybe someone will look at the users who reply to “t” and manually find the number of these people in the address book, delete them, and no longer give them push messages. However, in the “gray product” of marketing messages with the initial push volume of 100000 + and hundreds of thousands of numbers, they certainly have no intention or energy to eliminate these unsubscribed numbers. < / P > < p > then the question is, since there is no such function option as “automatically unsubscribe after t unsubscribe”, why does the marketing SMS provider take the trouble to remind users that they can unsubscribe? < / P > < p > < p > “regular” marketing SMS numbers start with 106 numbers. The beginning of SMS is also the standard format with company name written in brackets. At the end, with reply T, unsubscribe is also a unified requirement of national communication management regulations. < / P > < p > for this kind of marketing SMS with the beginning of 106, it is better for users not to use the popular reply “0000” on the network to not receive SMS, because although this can really block the push of these SMS, our commonly used verification codes of various platforms also pass 106 If the message sent by the platform happens to be the same port, the user may not receive the SMS verification code in this way. < / P > < p > the most critical problem is that even if you reply “0000” to the marketing SMS at the beginning of 106, it can only block 106 SMS, but not “special” marketing SMS. < / P > < p > for example, for a number that seems to be a landline number but actually calls an empty number, the display of the number is “random”, and it is useless for the user to pull the black manually. < / P > < p > some people take charge of it. For example, we can report spam messages through the 12321 hotline for reporting bad network and junk information. However, the underlying rule is, “it’s no use in fact. Being reported doesn’t have much impact on our company. The most serious problem is that the company is shut down, and the boss can register a company again. After all, telecom companies need to have a good meal. This root is not cut off, and other measures are just temporary rather than radical. “. < / P > < p > of course, this kind of “grey product” of Telecom, represented by China Mobile, China Unicom and China Telecom, has existed for a long time. As the root of all kinds of Telecom fraud, this problem involving massive interests still needs time and hard work to solve. < / P > < p > the bad news is that in the era of mobile Internet, in which personal short message service has almost been replaced by social software such as wechat, operators may not have the motivation to root out this mess of junk SMS. After all, it can bring operators a steady stream of b-terminal stable income. < / P > < p > finally, just like harassing phone calls, the gray industry chain of peddling user phone numbers is also an indispensable part of the marketing SMS industry chain. < / P > < p > in China, the privacy issue has always been a commonplace issue. Almost every once in a while, there will be a big factory privacy leak on the Internet, and it is normal for users’ phone numbers to be packaged and sold. < / P > < p > let’s not talk about the “dark network” that is active in the depth of Internet privacy transactions. Even in some e-commerce trading platforms or wechat businesses, we can often see the information of selling users’ telephone numbers. < / P > < p > as long as 3000 yuan, you can buy 30 million phone numbers, including names, provinces, cities, and employment units. Several excel forms of user phone numbers sorted and packed by G are “worth having”. < / P > < p > therefore, from a practical point of view, almost all of us can’t avoid becoming a potential audience of marketing SMS, because in daily life, most people can’t guarantee to protect their phone number and other privacy. It’s almost common for us to receive marketing SMS and phone calls immediately after buying a house, buying a car, shopping and registering an app. < / P > < p > looking back, from the perspective of users, it is very difficult for us to avoid spam messages 100% without affecting their daily use. < / P > < p > take the keyword screening anti spam SMS function of many mobile phones as an example. Even if users can take the trouble to set and add various kinds of screened keywords, the marketing SMS platform can also filter keywords to avoid, and users may be unable to receive the required SMS because of the key words set. < / P > < p > some people claim to have put forward the so-called “ultimate” solution, which is to set “unsubscribe” as a blacklist keyword and “verification code” as a white list keyword. In this way, you can avoid spam messages without affecting the receiving of verification codes from various platforms? < / P > < p > it is worth noting that the various methods of users and netizens are only dealing with and shielding spam messages at a shallow level. These methods are easy to lose effect with the iteration of the marketing SMS platform. < / P > < p > as long as the huge profit space of marketing SMS still exists, the marketing SMS platform has the ability to let the SMS they want to send out, and the relevant parties will lose their motivation to completely eradicate the mess of junk SMS. < / P > < p > intercepting spam messages and harassing calls is never a simple technology or user experience problem, but in the final analysis, it is still the interest game behind. In this era when the chaotic phone has been packaged as a high-tech enterprise and evolved into an artificial intelligence harassment phone model, the pursuit of interests is the fundamental reason for users to become “digital leeks”. Huawei has finally made a choice! Xiaomi and ov have also followed up. Have you ever thought about today?
