Hiya Announced as 2016 MEFFY’S Finalist

With a record-breaking number of submissions across 30 countries, Hiya is thrilled to announce that Hiya Caller ID and Block has been named as a finalist in the 2016 Meffy’s Awards. The Meffy’s provide a “unique global insight into the mobile trends changing consumer behaviours and evolving the mobile landscape.”

What better category to feature ourselves in than “Consumer Trust”? Keeping scammers away from your mobile is our #1 goal. How do we work towards that goal? Hiya ingests and processes data from multiple sources to produce highly accurate caller ID data. This process reconciles multiple sources’ intel into a single response. Then, we provide real-time spam analysis, brought to you, our user and BFF. Hiya relies on our own proprietary data, along with government and third-party data through partnerships and public information (think FTC, FCC…). 

“This year’s finalists showcase innovation across different sectors and recognise effectiveness in Consumer Trust and Messaging.” – MEF CEO Rimma Perelmuter

The winners will be announced on December 1st in London, because the MEFFY’s are fancy.*

*Note the spelling of “behaviours” and “recognise”.
