    Icon28 Seeking smartphone advice

    Anyone have experience with blocking SMS messages on an android (Samsung) smart phone??

    Specifically, I'm looking for a recommendation on an SMS App that would automatically block, filter or delete or filter an SMS message based on a keyword in the text.

    There are so many SMS Blocking Apps available, I have no clue where to start or which one meets my needs.

    Thanks in advance.

    Malwarebytes used to be able to do this,
    but the recent Android update removed this function,and that of most other sms blockers.

    Heres a linky to look at

    What I'm looking for is an App that will do that automatically based on the content of the message, similar to filtering programs for junk e-mails.
