The patent titled “Detection of spoofed call information” describes that a system would examine the Technical data of incoming calls on mobile devices to check whether the calls are legitimate or spoofed.
If the calls were not legitimate, the system would automatically warn users or avoid call alerts like ringing and vibration.
