DOI:, Pub. Date: 8 Jul. 2017

Spam SMSes are unsolicited messages to users, which are disturbing and sometimes harmful. There are a lot of survey papers available on email spam detection techniques. But, SMS spam detection is comparatively a new area and systematic literature review on this area is insufficient. In this paper, we perform a systematic literature review on SMS spam detection techniques. For that purpose, we consider the available published research works from 2006 to 2016. We choose 17 papers for our study and reviewed their used techniques, approaches and algorithms, their advantages and disadvantages, evaluation measures, discussion on datasets and finally result comparison of the studies. Although, the SMS spam detection techniques are more challenging than email spam detection techniques because of the regional contents, use of abbreviated words, unfortunately none of the existing research addresses these challenges. There is a huge scope of future research in this area and this survey can act as a reference point for the future direction of research.
