How to stop iMessage spams

In recent months, iMessage users have been getting slammed with spam messages, most of which include links to websites that hawk fake Ray-Ban and Oakley sunglasses. I get at least a few of these messages every month, and most people I know do as well.

Apple has remained silent on the issue thus far, and there’s no telling if Apple is working internally to address the spam and put an end to it. So there’s only one thing to do if you want to stop the madness: tell Apple about it over, and over, and over again.

If more people continually report each spam message they receive, Apple is far more likely to make the issue a priority.

Each and every time you get a spam message in iMessage, report it to Apple using this procedure found on the company’s support site. It couldn’t be easier — you just need to email a screenshot of the spam message to imessage.spam@icloud.com along with a few details.

In addition, be sure to block each spammer using the following steps:

  1. Tap the message from the individual you want to block.
  2. Tap Contact in the upper right.
  3. Tap the Info button, directly under the Done button. If it’s a group message, select the appropriate button for the person you want to block.
  4. Scroll to the bottom of the card and tap Block this Caller.
  5. Tap Block Contact.

You still may continue to receive spam from different senders, but blocking spam addresses is always a good idea.
