Not impressed 2/5
Have tried HIYA for a few months. It is NOT working.
Worthless, actually... 1/5
By J Townsend
... less than worthless. Not only does absolutely nothing, it (a) bugs me daily to update the database, (b) takes up valuable space on my iPhone. Deleting...

This app blocks nothing - permissions are set up correctly and it’s as if no app was in place at all.
Does not identify calls 99% are no info available.200 call limit is a joke I always have more than 190 ids available at the end of the month.What do I get for my membership fee?
Good but... 3/5
I like the app. Until you get it on your iPhone. I looked around and there’s no mention of the iPhone not being able block some calls until you get the app.
How do you block 1? Yes, the number 1.
By tired of phone calls
If it suppose to stop telemarking then it is a waste of time.
My friend has an android phone and I have an iPhone. When she receives calls they show the name of the caller immediately and I have to put the phone number in hiya to see who’s calling after the fact👎🏾👎🏾👎🏾. I would like to see who’s calling immediately too.
Does this app work differently because I have an iPhone???????
2/21/2019 Update-does the app need to be open? If I don’t see a change or get a reason why the names don’t show up I’m canceling the service.
Hiya premium blocks all calls 2/5
Don’t know which update did this, but when I turn on the premium feature in my iPhone XR
IOS 12.2.2, this blocks all calls to my phone.
The caller hears nothing for 10-12 seconds, then gets my voicemail.
Doesn’t work 1/5
By Sad Olympic viewer
This app used to be my phone screener, all calls through the app with the name or business name of majority of callers identified. Possibly through updates of Apple iOS or through the app updates it stopped working like that. The whole purpose of having the app was to screen calls for spam, unknown persons or entities. I’ve tried uninstalling and reinstalling but the current configuration the app just sits separately on my phone, not serving any purpose. Previously it worked well, now, just taking up space with no use. Will be deleting. True rating should be ZERO stars.
And what it’s job? 1/5
By The Newna
In the beginning this app was great, but now the filtering is weak
So far it’s crap 1/5
It hasn’t done anything it says it does.
Even The free service is amazing so understand what premium can do for you!
Very nice indeed!
Where every call can mean a life changing moment! Having those who need to get tough ~ can!
Its a real blessing!
( Pastor Mack!)
Thought this was an ok app. Liked it enough to try premium. Canceled after a couple weeks (before auto renew). The amount of numbers it could not identify was too high to be worth paying for. Worst of all, I received calls from numbers I know and it should something completely wrong. The most recent example- the Cleveland VA Hospital called me and it showed some women’s name. Try the free version and see what you think before buying
Still Getting Solicitations!!! 1/5
I’ve used other way better apps that keep you from getting unsolicited calls, unfortunately, I don’t know what the purpose of this app is since you still get all of the unwanted calls.
Guess the want you to subscribe because it doesn’t work as well as it did.
They will not block the number , the number is still able to get through !!!! Tried it SEVERAL times ! Customer service insisted that I try this application to keep me from changing my number of all these years but it does not work and I’m HIGHLY upset because ppl that I can’t get in contact with that has this number !
Block no caller if 1/5
I tried to block a no caller id number but it doesn’t work
This app is absolutely useless! It does nothing, you have to manually enter the numbers you need to block. Hasn’t stopped one single call
Great when I first installed. Not so much now 1/5
This app is pretty much useless now. Every call that comes through just indicates that no information is available and prompts one to subscribe to the fee based premium. When I first installed a year or so ago it was quite helpful in identifying spam related call. That is no longer the case.
Caller ID needed 4/5
By Maria 123234345543765
Should provide caller ID while phone is ringing, only does it after the call.
Not properly working 3/5
This app is mediocre really and I’m super disappointed. I got premium and it doesn’t protect much more because it is ALWAYS “updating” and supposedly that means it can’t block calls or protect you when it’s doing that. So I still get at least one call per day from spam and usually many more!
Not impressed 2/5
Recently upgraded to the premium service. Probably a mistake. Still getting daily, multiple spam and Robo calls. Not sure if this is a inferior product or whether they all have limitations and their ability.
By Greg Prosch
I have received six spam calls in the last two days and this app didn’t stop or flag any of them.
Not blocking calls 1/5
So far this app is not picking up on or blocking any of the spam calls I am receiving!
I am daily receiving calls from 800-777-2679 or the exact number with the last digit changed several times a day and it’s regarding my social security number being compromised.
My review 5/5
By Kistin LaRae
I am very pleased with this app. Thank you
F-A-B-U-lous, F-A-B-U-lous 5/5
Bravo Team Hiya!!!
I've have had you for few years now and on all my cell phones. TY for saving and extending my life for avoiding me going off on all the Robos or humans..... Saved me from multiple Strokes and therefore Enlarge/Extending My Life
Don't wonder who called you... 5/5
I like that I can quickly identify (or not) most phone numbers, or at least determine if they are calling about something which concerns or interests me.
Get this app and be empowered to prevent "crank" calls!
I have been “saved” quite a few times from unwanted callers.
Greed 101? 3/5
After using the basic Hiya app-and introducing others to it-it no longer works unless you pay to upgrade. I will be checking out my phone carrier’s app and others to find the basic level of service.
They good! 4/5
By I raped your mom
Love this app. Works fine except for unknown callers. If I get an unknown caller that doesn’t leave a vm, I just block it anyway. The app needs to add a category for type of spam call for Social Security scams. I’ve started getting a few of those lately. Other than that, it works great for scams and telemarketers and robo callers. Thanks
Blocks nothing. The same number can get through several times a day, every day, despite having that number set to block for weeks. And seems I’ve started getting twice the telemarketer calls since installing this app then before it. I’ve heard this app might actually be phishing our numbers to the scammers. Thanks for nothing. Deleting immediately.
99% of numbers I search come up no name available. Caller ID works when it wants to, or only when the app is open and 99% of the time it’s no name available. The numbers that you block still come through. Totally useless app.
Completely useless 1/5
Could you please, please, just once, block a neighborhood spam call? Seriously though? It’s on on all settings, but I’m getting these spams from my own area code all the time. Every. Single. Day.
Not even a warning.
This app is an utter trash.
Seems great!!! 5/5
I’ve fortunately only had to use this app six times, so far so good!! I usually get so many robo calls, this week was slow!! Next week I’m sure I will really have put it to good use (the app)! I’ve blocked all six. The lady TiVo call was by far the most annoying one, they called every few hours, all day today! HIYA informed me that it was a Telemarketing call, HIYA blocked it, haven’t heard from them since, beautiful thing!!
Great app! 5/5
By Great writing
Has helped me very much, keep junk calls from calling!
Does not work 1/5
By thomas kg
App is set up and turned on but nothing ever shows on any incoming calls.
Bad app 1/5
After installing received 2 spam calls immediately
Not telling me enough!
Why did I even download this? 1/5
This app has only stopped about 1% of my spam calls.
Doesn’t block anything 2/5
Lets spoof and spam through. Disappointed in the app.
Doesn’t work well 2/5
Keeps letting numbers through it knows are spam
Takes The Mystery out of those RoBo Calls 5/5
By TASTE YOUR DREAMS
This is a great little app to use for all those Business owners or Phone Jockeys that need the peace in mind of the unknown RoBo Ghost Callers
When j had my android phone I just added the app. And it would block all scam and spam calls and block them. Since I have had this apple phone it doesn’t block anything unless I go update it every day which is a pain in the rear. I guess I’m gonna have to see if there is another app that is out there to block these types of calls.
Paying why? 1/5
So I am paying for this as a subscription service but so many of the numbers come up as unknown caller. I’m paying to get information on the numbers calling me but have gotten very little. Why is that?
I’m just finding this disappointing because I’d like to know who is calling...I will not answer a call from a number I don’t recognize but there has to be some way of identifying the caller, which is what I expected Hiya to do for me.
Considering canceling my paid subscription today. Just not satisfied. I can block calls through my phone easily.
No protection 1/5
This app doesn’t really do anything. Yes it will block calls but I’ve had to go into the app copy the robo callers number into it write a report, and then block the number. I know it’s creating a registry from its members but I still get more than a dozen calls a day. I can do the same thing through my phones call block protocol. Look somewhere else.
Sometimes it works. Wants you to pay for upgrade even then it wasn’t the best
Makes things worse 1/5
At this point I’m not convinced that this is and actually causing more spam calls. Hasn’t blocked one in months.
Doesn’t really block. 1/5
Still getting tons of robocalls.
