Good but Sep 20, By Glapalom. Especially for the free version! I would rate it even higher, but it seems even though I leave the app running all the time, I am constantly having to go back to the app, and reset the settings I previously selected. About once every couple weeks, I begin receiving a noticable number of spam calls coming through.
I also have to go into Hiya settings and reset things like the type of protection I want. Once fixed this could be a great app. Right now, I just see it as a good app. By the way, the feature just announced, that the dial pad protects you against calling a spam number? What is that? Why would the app developers think this is a good feature? How many spam numbers do you mistakenly call each day? Seems their time could have been better spent fixing things like persistent settings instead.
Jun 26, By Bobby Loblolly. Got a brand new phone and number and was getting robocalls about medicare, despite being nowhere near the age for needing it.
Anyhow, do not call registry failed to stop the harrassment, but Hiya did. And 12 bucks a year is very reasonable for premium. A quality of life app I'll not be without from now on. Best App Jul 25, By Sindhasfun. I love this app and thanks to its features I am not getting so many spam, and annoying calls. This app with a huge community reporting these behaviors at least gives a person a heads up before answering their phone.
Now they have added a feature which you can buy if you have the need too that identifies the caller ID. Just not having my phone ring 20 times a day with these nonsense callers is finally giving me some peace.
They use computers and all kinds of methods to try to scam and steal from innocent hard working people. I tell them I buy nothing over the phone and to submit their information using the US Mail. In the two years I have had this app nothing ever came through the US mail. Too dangerous nowadays to even bother with these people. This app will actually help you to actually block and report them to your social community which in turns helps others.
I highly recommend this app to every age group especially Seniors. Hiya on my local news and a time saver besides May 13, By Cbgc. I found the app after a local news radio guy raved about how great it is. And he did it during a conversation with someone on the air spontaneously.
That is how I know it was not a commercial. He apologized and said that he was not doing a commercial and was not a paid spokesman for the company just a customer. It really seems to work great. I run a small business here in a major American city and because of that my number is published in many locations.
They really try to take advantage of businesses because of the fact that they know that we cannot change or disconnect our numbers without going out of business. Sometimes I found that I was wasting 10 to 20 minutes per day on answering calls that were a total waste of time. That means over the course of the year I will save dozens of hours of my time and be able to really make more money talking to my customers, hiya is well worth it.
See all positive reviews. Jul 1, By Tim Goldsmith. I purchased the app. The caller ID feature is outdated. It is giving caller IDs from 2 years ago. The screening tool doesn't work. For example, a call from WebEx will come back as a call from Walmart then it will block it. I am only a week into it, I hope it improves. The app is ok hiya was constantly over charging my account 3times! In a month! There's nobody to contact.
I canceled the app june 28 there going to send me a email their renewing it on July 15 they will cancel it on July 29th! What nerve cancel my subscription! I'm blocking you now!
By RWalker The only way I was able to enable the premium features was by uninstalling, which caused me to lose all my Hiya settings and blocked number list, and reinstalling. Then I was able to enable the premium features.
That was my fault. I needed to give Hiya access to my contacts. Once I did that everything seemed okay for a day. But then today, calls from my wife started going directly to voicemail again. I checked the settings and Hiya still had access to my contacts. The only thing that worked was turning off Hiya all together in my phone settings. In any case, out of frustration I deleted Hiya and canceled my premium subscription, and will live with the new Silence Unknown Callers feature in iOS for now.
Jul 10, By LaMont Dash. Doesn't block numbers consistently. I expect any numbers not in my contacts to be blocked!!
That's why I pay for the so called premium service. It even blocked one of my contacts 'my aunt'. This is the last month I am going to put up with this. Jul 7, By Shenia Jordan. I'm not sure what happened before the update but I'm either receiving notifications extremely late from old phone calls, or this app is automatically calling people.
Now I'm getting constant notification, after notification of old phone calls I placed a few hours, if not a FEW days ago. Please fix this issue, it's driving me insane. See all negative reviews. Take control of your privacy!
Make a blacklist of unwanted numbers to avoid spam and unsolicited calls SMS Caller ID helps you identify text messages, even if they are not in your personal contact list Keep others informed by reporting fraudulent numbers once you receive an alert on a call Reviewed by Ariana H on March 23, Jun 19, By Dave MacDonald. Great App, cuts unnecessary interruption. Let's you know history of comments from other users about an incoming number.
You can choose to block repeated solicitation calls and make your own comments for the benefit of others using the app. I use for callers that refuse to honor "do not call" requests so unwanted calls becomes a waste of their time not mine.
Just download it already! Apr 16, By DrCourtBen I had been getting at least 5 spam calls a day for months I read great things about two app options, one of which being Hiya. Hiya is my favorite and the only app remaining on my phone to assist in spam call screening. The set it and forget it nature of Hiya is so simply perfect that I just had to let others know how great it works. Imo, Hiya but is so much more than just an app, it is a true public service. Download it, allow it full access, and be much less stabby when your phone rings.
By Wendy Garbart. It has been great not being annoyed by unwanted calls. Zoom is a free HD meeting app with video and screen sharing for up to people.

It is an all in one app that is power packed with features like Caller ID, identify and block unwanted calls and messages, phone lookup, birthday reminders and many more. Receiving spam calls is always annoying and it is always suggested to have a Call Identification app that saves you both time and money. We hope that with these top 8 free call identification apps, you will be able to make your choice and download the one which suits you best.
All product names, trademarks and registered trademarks are property of their respective owners. The app also includes the CallClerk answering machine which will offer you the following functionalities:.
Protect yourself with a great VPN when making calls on Windows Not totally happy about the terms of service. I generally don't answer any unknown callers. I don't think there isn't any reason to hide your name if you calling me. I like this program that will filter the spam when I'm not being attentive to phone at the moment.
I am on do not call registries and it still continues. Anything that will make it tougher on these callers is great by me. I like the product and hope we see future refinements and there will be many more programs developed by others. If my phone does not recognize the number from my contacts then I just don't answer it.
Most of those never leave a message so it's not even any extra work. Anyone you wish to talk to is going to leave a message. Judicious use of Google Voice numbers for things likes Craigslist ads means you don't have a problem with marketeers picking up your "real" number.
So, unless you're in a business where you expect to get a large number of client calls from new numbers, I don't really see the need for this app. Well, unless their target is the people who each time the phone rings thinks they've either won the lottery or their mother is in the hospital. Shamefully, I am one of those people who sweat every time the phone rings with an unknown caller. What if it's someone calling from a pay phone? Or maybe it's a new friend!
I know it's not, but every time the phone rings, that's the first thought that goes punching its way through my brain. There has to be a way to completely block them from calling and not leaving a message. Another light fluffy article that really does not provide enough information from actually using these apps for an extended time. All this does is gives the vendors exposure. This issue reared its head in the version update when the app was renamed from White Pages to Hiya.
And I removed mine. This is what readers crave in reviews. Actual user experience. After reading all the permissions required to use TrueCaller and Hiya, I am concerned about security issues.
They pretty much want to have full control and deletion capability over my phone, contacts, email, text, photos, etc. There is no way I will use either App! In the above article regarding TrueCaller you mention past security issues as the only con. How far in the past are we talking and what is their security like now? Features The main purpose of Hiya is to help users identify the calls they want to pick up and automatically block the ones they want to avoid.
Despite all the information it collects, which will be discussed below, TrueCaller guarantees your safety within the app with million users who trust them with their information. There are some advertisements, but they are unobtrusive and perfectly safe to access. The app does not modify anything else with your phone beyond what you have given it access to.
It will not ask for or use anything that you do not give to it. You will be able to say no to the app if you want to preserve the integrity of your information in specific situations like connecting to Facebook. The main concern with this program is the amount of information that it has gathered. Once it's plugged into your landline, simply pair the device with the companion Call Control app on your smartphone and its "CommunityIQ" feature will use a crowdsourced list of reported scams to identify unwanted callers and block them before they can even connect.
The app also provides you the option to blacklist specific numbers and helps you ignore the annoying calls conveniently. Calls can also be recorded with the app, but make sure that the place you are located allows the same.

The number can be identified on the app without the internet as the app has an offline database.
