How can I stop text spam?

Episode 1440 (1:29:59)

Larry from Palm Springs, CA
Texting with coffee

Larry says that Google Maps thinks he's still living at his old home. He's since moved and he wants to know how to reset it. Leo says to use those three lines in the upper right-hand corner and select "your places." Then he can edit or delete them.

True Caller also used to take good care of his spam text messages. But now that he has Android, he's getting spam again. Leo says that in the settings he can disable the message app he's using. Since the Messages Plus texting app is causing it, he can just delete it. Then messages will default to the Google Messenger and he should be OK.
