This is the most useful app I have used. It has blocked bogus calls & messages. My phone used to be bombarded with calls that wore out the battery & load up voice mail. Not anymore. If you shop on the internet get this app. 1 purchase gives your number to anyone that sells or shares customer information and they all do it. Illegally but still happens.
I am actually glad it does not duplicate the phone's call logs into its own history. That would be a major privacy issue, since there would be two logs I would need to remember to clear. Caller ID may not be accurate without an internet connection, but seems to be very accurate otherwise. This is one of the only non intrusive, lowest battery consumption, 100% free no strings attached, caller ID app on the play store. It does what it says it does, all for free, and even without duplicating or uploading my personal data. What could I possibly dislike?
I was getting 2/3 scam calls from foreign countries a day. Put up with it for a while but today I had enough. I was trying to get some sleep before work and was called twice by them, so i did some digging and found this app. All the scam calls I've had have been automatically blocked and I'm able to view all the comments from people who have had the ssme issue. It's a very accurate system - you don't have to worry about missing any important calls from people you might know. It only blocks the scam callers. By default, the app blocks private callers too, but you can change the settings to allow calls from private numbers. I need this because sometimes my work calls me on a private number. So a very handy app to have. It does It's job effortlessly and without complication. 5 stars
Overall, it works really well --but, there's a problem with how Hiya responds with a text. Most of the scam calls I get are from local numbers, though the auto-responder adds the country code and this causes outbound texts to fail to reach their intended recipient --the actual owner of the number that may or may not be hijacked. An option to customize the autoresponder would allow the user to correct what number is used based on its geographical location.
So far it has identified about 300 bogus numbers and blocked them. I can block and unlock them anytime. NICE! It tells me exactly who is calling and if they are scammers/telemarketer or whatever. I will spread the word around about Hiya. So far it is GREAT! Best app I have on my phone!!!
Love this app. Keeps track of calls and text. Don't know the number, can see if it's a spam call other's have reported. Does allow you submit corrections to a number if the caller id is not correct. Even works with text messages. Very informative and helpful.
