Hiya raises $18 million to grow its mobile caller ID and spam-blocking service globally

Hiya, the company behind the caller ID and spam blocking app of the same name, announced today that they have raised $18 million in a series A round of funding, reports VentureBeat. They plan to use the funds to “transform mobile calling worldwide.”

“By way of a quick recap, Hiya was spun out of online directory services Whitepages as a standalone company way back in April 2016, having previously been known as WhitePages CallerID. Founder and CEO Alex Algard resigned his lead role at Whitepages last September to focus all his efforts on the new spin-off company.”
