Malicious Trace Call

The Malicious Call Trace (MCT) feature is intended for use when harassing phone call traces, or medical emergency call traces are needed on campus.

What is a malicious call?

A phone call is considered obscene or harassing if it is received at a location where you have a reasonable expectation of privacy and the caller makes repeated calls or makes any comment, request, suggestion, or proposal which is obscene, lewd, lascivious, filthy, vulgar, or indecent. Such a call or language intends to abuse, threaten, or harass any person who answers the telephone.

The MCT feature is a FREE service that is provided to all university telephones only. This service cannot be activated from Verizon telephones (i.e., pay telephones or other non-campus telephones.)

To have this feature added to your phone please email for request to help@usf.edu.

A new template will also be sent to the requester. This feature is free of charge.
