Hiya Caller ID and Block App Reviews

114 add

This app needs work

Its not blocking any calls. Its letting them through and I have to add them to a blacklist. What do I need the app for?

deleted app, still answering my phone

in the 3 days ive had this, ive missed at least 4 calls that were flagged by hiya. i deleted it and the deleted app is still flagging calls.

Spam magnet

For six years on my iPhone I receive an average of four spam calls a year. I did want an app that would let me know who was calling. Since using Hiya and enabling full call protection I receive an average of 10 spam calls a day. Half of those calls ring through to my phone. When I check them against the hiya the app, it identifies them as known spam callers but doesnt block them? I am wondering if hiya isnt working both sides of the fence and selling gathered information through their app to Telemarketers. I have messaged hiya but they refuse to return my emails.

not too sure if its even doing anything

So tell me why just got a phone call from Blacklisted by Hiya? You would think that wouldnt be possible. I have never got the "Suspected Spam " message on an incoming call even though I search number in app and the number has 20+ spam reports.

Who called?

Over 5 months this app caught less than 5% of spam calls because spammers rarely use a number long enough to get on Hiyas blacklist. It was a good idea that spammers have evolved to avoid. This app also interfereswith other apps. I caught a glimpse of the red suspected SPAM screen, but I have no way of checking if the number was truly SPAM. There is a long list of numbers under the info button. Is the caller the first, last or anywhere on the list? Recent calls should still list the number with the word blocked by Hiya. I tried to contact the developer through the app support button in the AppStore. The website just hangs. I tried manually and theres no way to contact them or even a list of FAQs. Id rather just go by the rule, if the number isnt in contacts and they dont leave voicemail its spam. I can check for that using one of several websites. I prefer to manually block the number. I will be deleting Hiya unless I can get an answer as to the number that called.

Better than Truecaller

I was a user of TrueCaller for about a year before trying this app. In the last three months I have noticed that this app does a better job of identifying spam then TrueCaller. Hiya seems to identify spam better. Know if iOS would only let it tell me before answering if it is spam.

So surprisingly helpful!

I love this app. My cell phone somehow got out to the telemarketers so I am disrupted constantly but with this app any one spammer only calls me once and then I get to blacklist them. Also get to read about other peoples experience to better inform me about the calls. Easy, convenient, and so very helpful. Thanks a ton.


Hiya is the best app ever. Its the best thing since sliced bread. I no longer read Im receiving spam and marketing calls on my cell phone and I am so ecstatic. This is an app I would recommend to anyone. And you will not be disappointed

Just ok

Its nice to identify a SPAM number. The only problem is that if you blacklist the number on the app, it will still ring through the next time they call and show it as blacklisted. If you want to block the number, you have to do it on your phone manually prior to blacklisting it. If you blacklist it first, it will forever ring on your phone every time they call.

Needs better integration with phone.

Needs to warn of spam call even when not running in background. Also need to be able to report spam call to hiya from within phone app like you can with truecaller. Having to cut and paste number is crazy clumsy. Both of these are dealbreakers.

Requires Registration

This app requires registration, even if you just want to look up numbers. You also cannot use the app at all if you do not give it access to your contacts. Even if you just want to look up numbers. Boo.

Just like Mr. Number; marginally useful.

This app does NOT screen calls. It will identify a number as spam/scam/fraud after the fact. Why it has a Protect option, I have no idea, because it does nothing. If the app makers actually allowed the app to screen a call, I would PAY for it.


This app is goooood!

Worthless on iPhone

I contacted customer support to see why Hiyas spam caller id was not working real time and they said Apple will not allow it so you can only look up numbers after the call, which makes the app worthless.

Pretty good

Helps prevent a lot of spam calls. Easy to use and fast identification of robo callers.


A total waste of time. Does nothing. Probably run by the spammers.


This little app is definitely a helpful tool against spam calls. Theres a community to report these callers, a blacklist option to warn you of the pending call, and theres a database of other spam numbers. This is my go-to app for telemarketers and just plain scammers!

Spam Detector

I love this app!! Its has protected me and my cellphone from unwanted call from spammers and the like. I recommend this app to all individuals who might get such calls. Send updates when possible. I give this app five stars!! Its awesome in its own right.

Very informational, fast easy to use problem solver

Great for weeding out telemarketers and people you actually need to talk to! Great that you can leave comments on your experience with the number! Wish it was more in depth for location!


Used the app for one week and it was ok at first. Then when I started marking calls as spam, it totally froze up the phone screen and I could not make calls, see recent calls or get voicemail messages through that screen. I reset back to factory settings twice and it still did not bring back the phone app (total blank screen when I hit it) and I lost my deceased fathers voice messages, notes and texts.
