Spam, robocalls, fraud 1/5
I’ve only had this for week and seems that I’m having to report these manually your system does not catch them , had like 15 Friday and so on throughout the weekend and it’s Monday and still getting them , I’m paying for the premium $3.99 sure would like to know why only worked for 5-7 days . It’s a joke , second one I’ve tried so not happy at all.
I’ve now had for month and getting like 25-50 calls a day you’re not catching so I’m having to do manually even though I’m a premium customer
Did zero to block spam calls.
Excellent App 5/5
Does the job!!! Will definitely recommend!!! I can’t say EXCELLENT big enough!!!! 👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻👍🏻
Last update 1/5
I did the last update and now I keep getting an error msg “not authenticated” with a bunch of letters and numbers.
Hiya has Details 5/5
By Pop Xmas 2014
You have the ability to look up the number that has called. You are given options, like Block and Report. Since I like to have this access, I really like this Premium App
By 2019 Spam Calls
Being able to block numbers is powerful!
Having Hiya detect spam and spoofing calls is more than I expected!
Love this app. This app has caught every spam and fraud call. Best I have ever had. Thank you keep up the great work.
Should be free I get 100 plus a day
Hiya doesn’t work 1/5
I have the hiya premium service. I still get 5-10 spam calls a day. I don’t answer my cell phone from anyone outside of my contacts anymore
A true blessing! 5/5
I used to receive 10-20 junk calls a day. The HIYA app has reduced my junk calls to maybe one or two a week. This week there’s been a new crop of solicitors. I copy the number into HIYA, it lets me know if it’s a legitimate number or a rover and allows me to block or report it, so others can avoid receiving their calls. Love this app!!!
Hiya rocks 5/5
I think hiya is the best robo caller apps I’ve ever used search and destroy that’s what it’s all about!
All good reviews are from the past 3/5
If you sort recent reviews, you can see that this app does not work anymore as it used to.
It blocks around 30% of calls. I do not see any numbers calling me night and day as flagged in their database. And in return, people get reluctant to report those numbers; which escalated the problem.
By SUB Surfs!!
Great app. Blocks lot of scammers.
Good protection 5/5
Using the free version for the past two weeks. So far...so good.
Limited value 2/5
I still get a lot of marketing, fraud, and robot calls.
Annoying messages though partially effective 3/5
While this app does seem to occasionally warn me of a suspected spam call, that is over ridden by the near daily messages to update the database, scolding me for ‘force quitting’ the app which supposedly keeps it from updating in the background.
As I typically go into airplane mode during business meetings, I can only assume it’s takes that moment to try and background update while offline.
Is it worth it? Hard to say but they need to do some more testing of both error conditions as well as user messaging in my opinion
Some numbers are ID’d , many aren’t . Honestly my carriers Premium caller ID worked better.Would be nice to have a simple Whitelist/blacklist.
Good app 5/5
Good free app. From 6 or more to none to one. Get this app.
Doesn’t do any thing. 1/5
I’ve been the victim of several very prominent bats breaches and I get a ton of spam calls (four or five a day) so I’ve been running Hiya for about a year. In all that time it marked its first call as possible spam yesterday... That’s one call in 1200 or so. Absolutely worthless.
It not free. hiya 1-2does nothing 1/5
By True buddy
Use it only when you want Premium. Or give it one star for not free. Free option will blocks any calls. But you can always give it one star.
DO NOT WASTE YOUR TIME WITH THIS APP, KEEP LOOKING. 1/5
By Dream Patch
... GOOGLE the ph# ..get much better results!
.UPDATE.. Still catches no spam calls. They all get thru and ring. This does not catch any spam texts either. I can see I need to find another way of looking up unknown numbers. This sometimes, shows you where the call is from. Anything else you have to pay preminm service. Which the way this app is failing, I could not imagine premium would be of any good either. I am DELETING....
Update... This app does not catch a single spam caller. I have this set to Block all spam calls. Does nothing. They are forcing you to pay for this app. I believe it still would not block or catch any spam calls still. VERY DISSAPOINTED
I would like to know how these people are getting this app to stop all spam calls. It certainly is not doing this here. They are moving all the features to the PAID PREMIUM version. This at least finds the number, when you "copy" a # from your call log, and searches from there. All other apps you have to punch in a # to have the app search, only to say "# not found". You get that alot here too. There is not any app your going to find to look up a # without paying for it. I had this app when it used to be "white page lookup". It was free, and you usually got a name or bussiness, or let you know it was spam caller. All that went away when it changed to Hiya
Error Message 1/5
By Ferran @ Memphis
Every time I look up a phone number it gives me an error message.
Just started to use this app. 5 stars
By CA in Indiana
This app does what I paid for - blocking scam calls and telemarketing calls. I also really like the identity feature.
Great utility app. 5/5
By Front left seat
My unwanted calls have all but disappeared. Once I block the numbers in the app the calls stop. Great app that my Dad turned me on to.
Does nothing 1/5
Doesn’t stop harassing scam callers 1/5
This app does not work. Cancelling my subscription.
Love it 5/5
By Charlie Rodarte
I can find out names of people and see who I'm calling before.
Only Warns, does not block 1/5
Hiya is a junk app. It does not block any calls. It only warns you. It may work differently if you offer a paid subscription, but their lauded “Neighbor blocking” does not work as advertised to block calls. It only ever warns. It is completely useless.
Waste of memory on my phone 1/5
This app doesn’t do anything. At least the free version doesn’t do anything. I can’t comment on the premium app. I used it 4 different times to look up unknown numbers and every single one came up name unknown. All it did was tell me the city it came from and that info already came up on my phone when the call came in. Don’t wast your phone’s memory of GB’s. It is not worth the time or frustration of downloading something that doesn’t work as advertised.
Was great... 2/5
This used to catch all the spam calls coming into my phone, so I upgraded to the pay service, now I get at least 3 spam calls a day and it doesn’t flag them. What’s the point of paying for a service that doesn’t work? And in case you are wondering, yes the app is open on my phone.
Best app but warning 5/5
By yolsi beauty
This app help me a lot,it blocked all the scammers calls, unknown mumbers , bill collector ect...
Keep in mind that if you don’t have someone mane added to your contact ,they won’t be able to reach you .when they call you it will go straight to voicemail ,you can only receive call that added to your contact.
I would give this app no stars if it would let me. To communicate with them they want all kinds of BS info plus the app wants to run in the background all of the time I can find something else that doesn’t want over a hundred dollars a year to tell you callers names.
Not Doing What Advertised to Do 1/5
There is supposed to be 200 number identification/ month of which it is not doing. It only says domestic number when it does. If I could get my money back I would do so.
Too many ROBO CALLS!! 2/5
By KAG FOREVER
This was once a great app. Now I get at least a dozen unwanted calls using my area code. I am a local business owner and have to answer. Please make it stop!!
This app is useless. Don’t waste your money.
Stop advertising this app as free if it isn’t free...
By vicent sr
This app has helped my calls
This app is great
Just alright 2/5
It only filters a Very few spam calls
The call blocking and detecting was mediocre with the free version and I hoped the pay version would be better but it hasn’t even detected the stuff that the free one was catching since I paid. No current plan to renew.
Pretty good 3/5
Blocks most unwanted calls...huge annoyance though is the app constantly shows it needs updated even immediately after it’s been updated and if you turn notifications off the app no longer functions properly
No longer works 1/5
I’ve been paying for premium service for a few years now and iPhone no longer has the setting to activate Hiya (iOS 13.3). Hiya says they can’t issue refund?!?! WTH
Don’t waste your money till they fix it!
The best yet 5/5
I have used Hiya for a few years and it is a great app for detecting spam calls. Try it, I’m sure you will be pleased. Freidaw
Appears that Apple broke the app... 1/5
I no longer see the blocked caller setting in IOS setup. Don’t know if Apple removed it to make apps like this stop working or just a oversight, but I am getting a lot of calls I didn’t used to get.
Blocks even non spam calls 3/5
By wishing i hadn't signed up
Please in my address book have started to be blocked as well.
What happened? 2/5
This app used to be great now it gives you no information
Don’t get it 2/5
I have mixed feelings about this app, unless I’m not getting it right. Been using it for a few years, but doesn’t seem to work accurately. I get many spam calls with no notification from Hiya letting me know that it’s a spam.
The other day I received a phone call from a government agency in my state (this was an important phone call, it wasn’t a spam) but Hiya marked it as a spam.
Just ok 1/5
This app has done little good to stop the spammers calls and when I go to look up the numbers in the data Hiya base, most of them give me an error. What we are accomplishing as subscribers is it’s us who are receiving the spam calls, then reporting them to Hiya, assisting them in growing their data base of bad callers, at our expense of the paid subscription. I bought the year. I will not renew my subscription nor would I recommend it.
Great app. Stops unwanted calls and is searchable. 5/5
This app has me down to maybe one or two calls that will slip through the cracks, from over 26 robo calls in one day. I love the search option. I can search numbers that have called me to verify they aren’t scam numbers. Well worth the price.
