Today, we are excited to announce a new partnership with the global security and privacy company Pango, as they add Hiya’s global fraud and nuisance call protection services to their all-in-one subscription of premium consumer security and privacy products. The partnership will give Pango’s global subscribers much-needed relief from the influx of these unwanted calls and offer peace of mind to their users that their personal information is safe.
Call protection is now more important than ever. As the impacts of coronavirus are felt across the globe, scammers are taking advantage of people’s high anxiety as coronavirus-themed phone scams are quickly becoming the biggest fraud call initiative since the Wangiri scam. According to our analysis, these coronavirus-themed scams have soared by 1,544% across the globe as scammers are selling fake health insurance, home sanitation services and even products that claim to cure COVID-19.
Hiya already protects over 120 million users across more than 40 countries, and we are pleased to add Pango’s users to our database in the fight against fraud and nuisance calls. We are also proud to partner with a company that’s been aggressively tackling the issue of internet security and cybercriminals head on. Pango’s subscription already includes Hotspot Shield, the #1 fastest VPN (according to Speedtest.net), 1Password for password management, Identity Guard to protect your digital and financial identity from fraud, and now Hiya, to protect their international customers from fraud and nuisance calls.
By adding Hiya as part of Pango’s subscription, users can put a stop to these fraud and nuisance calls once and for all, globally.
