January 7, 2022


In 2021, Americans were the targets of 50.5 billion robocalls, which is around a 10% increase compared to the 45.9 billion robocalls received in 2020. On the plus side, the number of robocalls received in 2021 was 14% lower compared to 2019, when these calls reached over 58 billion. This data comes from YouMail, a free robocall blocking app.

In December 2021, Americans received a little less than 3.6 billion robocalls. Last month, the average number of robocalls received per day was 115.1 million, a 13% decline from November’s average of 137.4 million calls per day. The 13% gap comes from a decrease in the received robocalls during the last weeks of December, which is most likely related to the holidays.
