Privacy Call Manager
Due to the proliferation of OTT mobile apps like Uber, Airbnb, and Instacart, who connect consumers to sellers via their mobile devices, phone numbers have now become the keys to unlocking an array of personal information. As a result, it has become increasingly important to ensure number privacy to prevent potential abuse. Inovar's Privacy Call Manager (PCM) protects a customer's actual phone number from potential abuse using a "common" number that masks their true mobile number when making calls or sending texts. With PCM, both consumers and sellers are assured protection and number privacy by restricting access to and potential misuse of both the consumer’s and seller’s actual number.
PCM masks the real number of the consumer and seller by pairing the numbers with either a common or virtual number to allow calls and/or texts to be completed between the two parties. As a result, the privacy of each party's true mobile number is maintained throughout, minimizing the threat of misuse. PCM can pair multiple consumers with a seller for multi-party scenarios such as ride-sharing, and can continue the number pairing for a configurable time after the service completion for added convenience. Additionally, PCM works entirely off signaling information originating or terminating within the telephony networks, providing mobile operators with a truly scalable solution.
