Can I block texts on Republic Anywhere

I have blocked numbers on my phone, but the robo texts still come through on my PC’s Anywhere. How do I block these persistent campaign text wanting my money?

Hi @vernr.zafwuk,

Though one can block unwanted text messages on one’s phone using Republic Anywhere, it is not possible to do so for Anywhere clients other than on the phone.

The alternative would be to switch to Messages by Google and use Google’s Messages for Web on the computer. This works because unlike Anywhere clients, each of which connect directly to Republic’s servers, Messages for Web mirrors text message content on one’s phone. The downside to this approach is one’s phone must be powered on and connected to the Internet in order to exchange text messages on other devices.
