In 2015, Hiya founder Alex Algard saw the increasing need for innovation in the voice channel and began building the first caller ID and spam blocking apps for mobile while at Whitepages.
In early 2016, Hiya spun out of Whitepages and brought its technology to market through Samsung Smart Call, the first-ever network-based spam solution with AT&T, and the Hiya consumer app.
Since its inception, Hiya has launched Hiya Connect and Hiya Protect, continues to power services for the world’s largest mobile providers, and has grown to serve more than 200 million businesses and customers worldwide.
