Guest Post: Americans suffered a whopping 50 billion robocalls in 2021 Says Atlas VPN

According to the data presented by the Atlas VPN team, US residents suffered a whopping 50.5 billion robocalls in 2021 — a 10% increase from 2020. On average, each affected person in the US received around 154 such calls the previous year.

A robocall is an automated telephone call that uses auto-dialing software to deliver a pre-recorded message to its recipients.

While residents of all US states received their share of robocalls last year, some were affected more than others.

Texas residents endured the most robocalls out of all the states in 2021. In total, they experienced 5.8 billion such calls, an almost 12% rise from 2020.

The US most populous state California comes in second on the list. Overall, close to 4.6 billion robocalls were directed at Californians in 2021. Compared to 2020, last year saw only a slight 1% increase in robocalls.

Florida occupies the third spot on the list with 4.1 billion robocalls. Compared to 2020, such calls rose by 10% in the sunshine state last year.

Other states in the top ten based on the number of robocalls in 2021 include Georgia (3.1 billion), New York (2.6 billion), North Carolina (2 billion), Ohio (1.9 billion), Illinois (1.85 billion), Tennessee (1.8 billion), and Pennsylvania (1.75 billion).
