Used to work 1/5
This app used to work. Now the "number" of IDs umm protected against keeps going down, and the number of spam calls I get keeps going up. And, yes, I PAY the annual fee.
Still getting several Robo calls. No matter how many times I update the app or enter numbers into the app to block, I am constantly harassed.

Hiya originally did an excellent job of identifying unwanted calls and blocking them as well. However, for some reason it appears to no longer do so. Is that due to a malfunction or have the spammers learned to circumvent Guiana?
Use another service! 1/5
By Alice 10'
Well, greed has again ruined another app that was great. I have been using Hiya for a couple of months when today it decided it wants to begin charging me for a “premium” service thru itunes in order to keep all the functionality I have been using for free. Now we all know that when an app wants us to subscribe thru itunes that if there’s ever any dispute that itunes will just tell you to contact the app developers & the app developers will say to contact itunes - so you’re a customer FOREVER unless you change your bank...So bye bye Hiya! Deleting you now.
Stopped working 1/5
I’ve had this app for about a year. Worked great for a while, one day it just stopped working. Wouldn’t notify as spam or block calls. Not worth the time/space/updates.
It does not do anything, I get tons of spam calls and then I have to manually block them 1/5
By Bill review.
Do you think it would actually take control of the spam calls but you have to block them in your iPhone and then it doesn’t automatically add to the app, what good is it?
Doesn’t do what they say 3/5
Calls are supposed to be blocked with Neighbor Scam enabled, but I still get a lot of calls from my area code and first three digits that are the same as mine.
Saved my sanity 5/5
I was being bombarded with SPAM calls. One in particular was particularly nasty. It was some scam robocall leaving voicemails saying my “eligibility for this program would expire within 48 hours” if I didn’t respond. I never responded but these f—-ers would call me 2-3 times a day, every single day leaving multiple voicemails! I’d block the number that called me but they’d just call back again from a new number. It was maddening. No other SPAM blocker was working but this one did. Even better, they don’t even get to my voicemail anymore. My phone used to ring incessantly, all day long, from unknown numbers. Now it’s down to 1-2 a day. I can live with that.
Doesn't block "neighborhood phishing". I still get 20 calls a day. Will not renew
Not very helpful 1/5
I could google and get the same results
So, I have it checked to block potential spoof and slap calls (I work night shift) and all of them meaning every single one still comes through.
Doesn’t Block Calls 1/5
I block phone numbers on the app and HIYA lets them ring through AND leave voicemail messages. Useless!
Terrible app, waste of time, does not work 1/5
The only thing this app does is have me open it up every day to update it. It’s a nuisance in itself and doesn’t block any unwanted calls at all.
Don’t waste your time. Deleting this app after writing this.
Does not help enough 3/5
The caller name should be revealed without being charged. Still can’t tell if it is someone I know.
This is an awesome app. I use it all the time to help ID the phone numbers that are calling me. I have blocked so many number and reported many scam calls!
By Eatsa Cutesy
When I first installed this app it worked great! Now two days later it isn’t working AT ALL!!!
Only premium users can submit spam 1/5
This is important to know if you're considering going with the paid version. People who use the free version can't report spam numbers so their "data update" is only from people paying for their app. After stopping the premium service, I've received one spam warning and some of the numbers that came through, not flagged as spam had been flagged when I paid for their service so if a "spam warning" shows on the free version, it's probably a ruse by the developers to get you to pay for premium Out of the hundreds of millions of spam callers, eliminating the majority of a crowdsourced base won't increase their data base so the developers are probably recognizing .01% of spam callers at best. Paid users have reported credit card fraud identification numbers, internet providers, mobile carriers, legit businesses and people who simply dialed a wrong number. When only a tiny number of users can submit spam numbers, it is absolutely useless. When you no longer receive warnings after cancelling premium, the app is useless. The developers want your money so don't fall for their scam!
Doesn’t tell me who called. Make me copy n paste to get the number
I don’t usually review but I’m so grateful for this app because it has knocked down my spam calls so much!!! I don’t have time to be blocking all the calls that come in. This app does a pretty good job of it!
Rarely works..... 1/5
I don’t understand marketing and providing a product that does not work.... swing and a miss for me I guess... I was really hoping this app would work!!!
GREAT app!!! 5/5
Got a call from, SUPPOSEDLY, Social Security! .Tried to call the number back and, for SOME reason, wasn't able to! TRIED to call Social Security and was informed that it would be a wait of OVER an hour! Hung up, downloaded THIS app and CONFIRMED my suspicions!!!
We have to do copy and paste or it doesn't stop anything.Then manually block it! So so app
My honest opinion! 3/5
First off I have noticed that my spam and nuisance calls have gone way down and for a free app Hiya is pretty good! So it does work as far as I can tell. However I have noticed that each time I do an update sometimes Ive had over 200,000 blocked spam and nuisance calls but the next time I update it only shows a little over 100,000 spam and nuisance calls. Not sure whats going on there and what has happened to the other 100 something thousand.
I wish they’d add something in the app to help with spam and nuisance text messages! I get more of those than I do calls now! I just received a text message from an email address but Hiya only allows me to use numbers to block. I know I can block it from my phone but it would just be nice to have the option to block not just phone calls but ANY KIND of spam!
Im still going to use the Hiya app for my calls but if I can find something that works with calls and text messages Im sorry but Im gonna have to do what works best for me!
If youre ONLY getting spam, telemarketing and other nuisance calls I HIGHLY recommend the Hiya app for those things! They have a free and a paid version and the free version has been working quite well for me blocking the calls.
Wait for iOS 13 2/5
Does not really work. Not worth paying, not better than free version. Calls still get through. Wait for iOS 13 so you can send straight to Voicemail. Meanwhile restrict to contacts.
Doesn’t block anything 1/5
I have a list of “neighbor scam protection” numbers listed to block and they still get through every single day. The app just doesn’t work to actually block anything. Completely useless.
Blocked - not blocked 2/5
I just went to the app to block a number but found I already had. Yesterday I received a call from that number today even though it is supposedly blocked.
Worked once?!?!? 1/5
By Chris Mayeda
Worked ok so I sub’d for the premium. Quit working soon after. No support or updates. Have to manually look numbers up and block. Does not work on the spoofed numbers 1-800-886-427 for example. Not sure how someone is able to call with 3 not 4 ending digits.
Let’s hijacked numbers through, still rings on spam calls even though I have it set to block spam calls and all the junk ends up under “missed calls” instead. Yes, it’s activated under Settings and it still does nothing. Every spam call I get needs to be manually added for blocking.
I’ve gotten more spam since I added it. 1/5
By hayley and bff
I got more spam since adding it.
By vino pompino
Tried this app in the hope that it might actually reduce the frequency of robo calls. It did not. Getting as many robo calls as always, if not more.
Love it. 5/5
By Agent 003.5
Yiya is fantastic
Finally a terrific app 5/5
When I heard about this app. I immediately downloaded. One of the scam calls is regarding a student loan. They are so annoying. I find myself missing legit calls if I do not recognize the number, issue with that is when a legit caller leaves a message you play telephone tags for a bit.
Pretty useless 1/5
I’ve had this app for about 6 months now. It has alerted me to or blocked, perhaps 4 calls in that time. Meanwhile, I get 4-5 scam calls per day. So, what’s the point of this app?? There doesn’t seem to be one.
Terrible. I continue to get spam and spoofed calls. Am unable to access web site to cancel, so I am stuck with this piece of junk
Still getting calls 3/5
Noticed a slight decrease in spam calls, but I still get at least one call per day. Not really sure how well this works.
Gives you the number that called but doesn’t tell you anything but a name
Great application 5/5
Working wonderful at screening calls and taking care of annoying span and telemarketing calls
First they split the block list from 2 into 3. I have to turn on. Now the app in the past 2 months has really not been great at blocking or identifying anything even long-standing businesses and clear fake phone calls.
Norma Stroupe 5/5
Call was from someone who said they worked with DEA and said they had found my car at the border of Texas and Mexico with blood in it and they had received information from FBI and Social Security that I had been in illegal drug trafficking. First I don’t own a car had one about 5 years ago but sold it I relied on other to get me around said I had a criminal history of this I’ve never broken any laws not in my lifetime not even for seatbelt violation don’t do drugs nor ever sold drugs saying they were sending FBI and DEA to my home. By time they were through I was in tears or affraid to step outside for fear they would jump me and handcuffed me or worst yet they would be busting in my door any moment
By GreEEn frOg 55425
I must be doing something wrong, because I haven’t noticed that the app is helpful. Maybe it’s because I haven’t paid for anything? In any event, I haven’t gotten fewer unsolicited calls, which is why I wanted this app.
So I am on the free trial where I can check phone numbers that call me. I have gotten one name out of five or six tries. No point in paying for this OR having the app. I’m canceling the trial and deleting the app. Hope this helps!
Does not work on I phone 10 1/5
Does not work on iPhone 10 paid for premium will not work contacted company for help did not contact back.
Scam calls still coming through. 2/5
I’m paying for the premium but still getting scam calls. Particularly in the middle of the night. I’m sure it’s fewer calls than if I didn’t have the app, but still... Probably going to cancel soon if it doesn’t improve.
Still getting calls 1/5
I am still getting unwanted calls. I don’t believe this app works.
Hiya is horrible 1/5
Hiya stinks on the iPhone. It doesn’t work.
Doesn’t seem to work very well 1/5
I’ve had this installed for about month now and it’s blocked 2 calls ..
I get a average of 15 unwanted sales calls a day though.. some at times that most of the USA is sleeping . 1-2am ..
I’ve manually blocked over 400 calls in my phone now and it doesn’t seem to work either .
I’m in cell phone hell ..
Keep it up! 5/5
This works as long as you keep it up on your side. Consistently report spam and scams and over time you’ll get less and less of them and the instant notification that scams and spam are coming through.
Really Amazing! :) 5/5
It makes me feel really safe.👍🏻
