Ooma Expands Call Blocking Service to Offer the Most Powerful Defense Against Telemarketers, Robocalls and Other Unwanted Callers

New Customizable Call-Blocking Capabilities Give Customers the
Greatest Control and Visibility Over Who Calls – Making Ooma the Most
Powerful Weapon to Fight Spam Callers

PALO ALTO, Calif.–(BUSINESS WIRE)–Ooma,
Inc.
(NYSE:OOMA), a smart communications platform for small
businesses and consumers, has expanded the capabilities of its Ooma home
phone service with the most advanced, comprehensive and flexible
call-blocking features available to put an end to unwanted telemarketer,
spam and fraudulent calls.

Telephone spammers have changed their tactics over the years and many
are now manipulating caller-ID information to make it difficult for
users to identify who is calling. Ooma home phone service customers who
subscribe to the company’s Ooma Premier service have a number of new
ways to fight spam, including blocking all calls, except from numbers
they specifically allow, and blocking calls based on caller name, which
is more difficult for telephone spammers to manipulate than phone
numbers.

“In the last couple of years our exceptional home phone service blocked
more than 36 million telemarketer and other unwanted calls,” said Eric
Stang, CEO of Ooma. “Now we’re giving consumers even more visibility and
control over who reaches them at home, halting intruders before the
first ring while allowing desired callers through. No other solution
provides a more comprehensive suite of features to protect consumers
from unwanted calls from telemarketers, robocallers and fraudsters.”

Ooma customers can now more effectively manage their blocked lists and
direct incoming calls according to their individual needs, protecting
themselves and their families from political calls, potential scams or
nuisance calls. Customers can turn off call-blocking services entirely,
select from three pre-configured protection settings or build their own
customized call-blocking profile. Finally, customers can elect to send
blocked calls to voicemail, play a number disconnected message, have the
call ring forever or play a call blocked message to the caller. Families
with young children and elderly parents can rest assured their home
phone will protect them from potentially fraudulent phone calls.

Ooma’s expanded call blocking features will begin rolling out to Ooma
Premier customers this week. For $9.99 per month, Ooma Premier offers
powerful features including: free unlimited calling to Canada and
Mexico, Instant Second Line, voicemail to email forwarding, ringing of
your home and mobile phone simultaneously, free mobile calling using the
Ooma mobile app, voicemail monitoring and more.

Built on an innovative technology platform, the Ooma Telo home phone
service provides PureVoice HD call quality and all of the features of a
traditional landline, without the high cost. Customers who have an
existing landline phone can keep their phone number when switching to
Ooma, and use customizable call blocking to effectively wipe out
telemarketers and robocalls. Ooma Telo also integrates with consumers’
favorite smart home devices including Amazon Echo, Philips Hue light
bulbs, Nest Protect and Nest Thermostat.
