Phone spam is like that mosquito that won’t stop buzzing in your ear, a major nuisance, and a problem that’s only growing. If you’re tired of receiving spam on your mobile phone, then check out how Hiya can help.
By taking advantage of Hiya’s database of 600M+ phone numbers, including 250M mobile phones, Caller ID helps you make informed decisions about whether or not to answer an incoming call. So how does our app know if a call is suspected of spam? Let’s take a look:
Our Users Make a Difference
Did you know that you can report spam within the Caller ID app? One of the ways we identify spam phone numbers is by giving users like you, the reins to submit and comment on whether numbers are telemarketers, scammers, or debt collectors. We then take that information and use it to warn others.
The Phone Reputation Team
One of the ways that we detect spam phone numbers is through our state-of-the-art phone reputation service. At Hiya, we have an entire team dedicated to detecting and monitoring spam numbers. Thanks to their work and the comments left by our users, we’re able to tell you when an incoming call is suspected of spam.
What You Can Do
To get a jump start on your call blocking abilities, download the free app from the Google Play Store. From there, Caller ID will send you alerts when a call is suspected of spam. If you do encounter a spam number, now’s your time to use your new found power and go ahead and report it to Hiya! It will not only block the number but will stop them from calling you again. Caller ID allows you to block specific phone numbers that you want to stop interrupting you. Together with spam alerts and call blocking, Caller ID puts control back in the phone owner’s hands. Give it a try and become part of our growing community of spam detectives.
