It’s not that good
Doesn't ever seem to block anything without me having to do it manually.
The free app is lame. It doesn’t even flag any of the similar phone number scammers. I still get a bunch of spam calls and even if it flags a telemarketer or scammer, there’s no way to block them by default unless you cough up more money (and according to the reviews, it’s dubious if it’ll work). Wireless is already so ridiculously expensive in the US. The Plus version should be a free service or better, ATT should block these calls at the network level. Instead, ATT just licenses the Hiya app and then turns around and wants to charge their customers triple $$$ for it. Ridiculous!
This app doesn’t do anything to stop my calls I get Robo calls every day and this app does nothing to stop it unless you want to pay money for it.
I’ve had this for a few weeks now, and it literally does nothing. I get 6-10 spam calls a day and it never flags them, and only 5 total in all that time have been blocked. And that’s only because I manually reported and blocked the number, then they tried to call again.
Not blocking the fraud calls
Would have given the app a higher rating but every Tom I tried to use it it asked me to write a review.
It never seems to block calls from Unknown area codes, I still get tons of robo calls everyday. I catch more calls than this app.. not with it
I’m still getting calls from spammers, so I re-installed. That verify your PIN— I never got a text message to verify. Too bad. If the paid subscription does not work, then I might have to find another.
Had this app for a few weeks now and get spam calls several times a day. Was hoping this would help. So far it has only flagged 1 of the calls when I receive at least 2-5 a day. I do have the free service; but wouldn’t pay to upgrade when I’m not happy with the free part.
