At YouMail, our latest patent-pending innovation is called audio fingerprinting.

News 6 in Orlando did a great job explaining to their viewers what it is and why it matters.

What it does is simple.  It lets us quickly compare a new voicemail  against every “bad” voicemail that we’ve ever seen (like those left by robocallers).  When we find a match, we know the number that left it is a bad guy.   So now with a single call leaving a single “bad” message, we can protect our users against all further calls from that number.

That doesn’t solve the robocall problem, but every little bit sure helps!

  1. I can’t get any of my messages from you all you all say is too full but I don’t have a password to clear it send me a password and then we’ll be okay other than that cancel it if you can’t

    1. Just go to youmail.com and hit forgot my password – it’ll text you a link to reset it so you can get in the apps and update things. Live Chat us at support.youmail.com if you need more help.
