Hiya Caller ID and Block App Reviews

114 add

Well. the App seems to work..to a point I was getting 1-2 random calls & robo calls a day. Installed the app and it identified them. I've only had this app installed one day now, and my incomming calls went from 1-3 a day, to so far..10 today. 2 of which were people claiming they just missed a call from me. So i'm really starting to wonder if this app works, or if there's a problem and it's actually causing more calls to go through and more 'false positives' to get blocked.

I downloaded this yesterday, and it accurately identified a spam, but today, when I got a spam call, and tried to identify it, the app got stuck in searching, searching, searching, searching and I cannot get it to stop and reset.

4 stars. Love this app. But it would be 5 stars if I still didn't get voicemails.

Does this app stop unknown callers or how does this app work?

The only feature of this app that has ever worked for me is AFTER I have received a call I can copy the number and open the hiya app and it will tell me if it suspects the caller is scam or spam. In iOS 10.2 I have set the Phone settings to use Hiya as a call blocker, and in Hiya I have set the settings to send both spam and scam calls to voicemail. I have given Hiya all of the permissions it has requested. But it hasn't once blocked or forwarded any call to voicemail. Frustrating.

Does anyone know if Hiya is supposed to actually identify and/or block incoming calls with iOS 10.1.1? I had read that earlier releases didn't correctly provide the handoff to hiya, but I thought by 10.1 that was supposed to be fixed?

I've tried to install this twice now. Still doesn't work at notifying me of spam calls. Pretty much useless as it doesn't do as advertised. Will spend up to $10 for an app that REALLY works!

Would not recommend this app. Does not block spam spoofed or telemarketing calls. DOES allow you to block calls after the fact. DOES allow a reversed look up of the number which is 100% spoofed 100% of the time. Why would I use an app to block calls after the fact when Iphone will do this in the contacts list functionality with little effort. I want an app that blocks the spam spoofed and telemarketing calls period. Back to the drawing board for you Apple.


Doesnt really tell me if they are using a voip. I tested with my own text app number

Much promise, but...

This app says it will warn about incoming scam/spam calls in their database, but its not happening. Only the ones I myself have marked. Maybe Im doing something wrong...

Works just OK

Lets more calls through than notes as spam. I still get a lot of junk call

It does a decent job

I like the fact most of the numbers that call. I look up majority of the time. I also like that I can block a number from calling me. I dont answer calls I dont know. Ill look them up after they call on HiYa 1st. Then go from there..

Great Idea, In Theory

Hiya is a great idea, but the app needs serious work. There is currently no way to mark a number as "not spam." If there is, its very difficult to find and the developers site doesnt help. Also, theres just a huge list of flagged numbers as opposed to a recent call list. Deleting the app because of these issues, but would happily download a better executed version.

Very helpful

I get calls many times a day and sometimes I dont know who it is, this app works so well to not answer those unwanted calls.


Great app for identifying numbers and spam

Fully five stars

I dont know how I lived without this app. As an old southern woman, I find it almost impossible to be rude, and Hiya allows me to block spammers with a clear conscience.

Missing major point!

I already can recognize the numbers that are spam or harassment. But this app should keep those numbers from calling me. Whats the point of labeling black list when I already know the number. I just want them to stop calling.


I used the app for some time, great job, but I suddenly noticed Hiya stopped responding I could not use it unless closed and opened it several times in a row, could not copy and paste the number, besides last time Hiya blocked an ability to call anyone, froze the keypad functionality even after the app was uninstalled. I had to restore my iPhone 6s. Sorry guys, I need my phone fully operational.

Good ID feature, poor filtering

The quick ID feature is great but the call filtering and blocking is unreliable and the way it adds a new contact entry for ever spam number it finds is very annoying. Why not just group them into one contact? I turned that feature off.

Do the job they made the app for

Works well to blacklist a number if you had a call from people you dont want. And good to warn others about
