Does not work well for me
I seldom find an ideal app or write a review, but this app is exceptional! I am loaded with telemarketing calls and this app identifies them all. In spite of being on the "Do Not Call" list, calls still come thru. Only wish I could use this on a landline also.
If it tells you anything, I pay monthly for premium and I just got a call from Jamaica. I still get spam/scam calls daily that aren’t picked up as spam/scam until I reverse search using their tool. When a call is identified and blocked as spam, the call will come through 5 times sometimes. I would say the app helps by sometimes identifying the location the caller is calling from. For example, I know I probably shouldn’t be receiving a call from CA when I live in NC (given my profession and such). The app has blocked a handful of calls. I continue to get spam calls daily. Multiple times a day. I’m not sure that any app would be better, but I wouldn’t call this app a saving grace for me.
So 3 days into the subscription and spam calls are coming in with no blocking. I will be cancelling this app.
The free version of Hiya is completely worthless. I seemed to receive the same amount of spam/scam and robocalls with and without Hiya installed (and yes, I kept the app running in the background at all times). Hoping for better results, I purchased Hiya’s “Premium Access.” There was no noticeable reduction in the amount of spam/scam or robocalls I received, but it was slightly helpful because Hiya Premium includes their “Premium Caller ID.” However, their premium access is (in my opinion) way overpriced: If you purchase it at their monthly rate of $3.99 per month, you’ll pay $47.88 plus local sales tax. Sales tax is 10% in my city, bringing my total to $52.67 for one year. Hiya offers a much more reasonable (although still overpriced) yearly plan for $24.99 (plus 10% tax = $27.49), saving the buyer about 52% when paid yearly. After using Hiya Premium for one full year on two phones (iPhone X and iPhone 12 Pro), I think the premium service does contain SOME value due to the Premium Caller ID, but like the free version it has NO value as a spam/scam or robocall blocker. In my opinion, a reasonable yearly price would be more like $8.99 - Not as a spam call blocker, but solely for their Premium ID feature.
Great app! Haven’t been bothered with spammers or telemarketing phone calls! Thank you!!!!
Blocks calls I need to receive in addition to all the others.
It doesn’t work. It’s never actually screened a call. Ever. And I know how to use the app.
This app needs constant attention. You cannot close it. Spam protection stops on its own, you need to re initiate it. It fails when spam call is there.
Wish I could get my money back! More spam calls since I install hiya. Believe they sold my number to every crook! DO NOT WASTE YOUR money on this app.
