    You might be right Jake. The version of Hiya that I used was some time ago. And it definitely was eating my battery. I may install it again to see what happens.

    I agree with Jake, I haven't experienced the battery draining issue while using HiYa. I used it on my iPhone 6 and still do on my 8+.

    @Bob:

    Are you allowing "HiYa" to block all known robo calls, scam calls, and so forth? Also, is your "HiYa" loading those numbers into its data base so that it will intercept them before the call sets off your iPhone?

    The reason I ask is when I was actively using "HiYa", I wound up with literally hundreds of numbers it was blocking. And nowadays the spammers will counterfeit local numbers so that they appear differently on your caller ID.

    Charlie, I had mine set to Warn, not Block, but just shifted to all Block to see if battery use changes. As I said, Hiya doesn't even make the list, and the smallest one on the list is 1%, which puts Hiya in the <1% range with Warn set. It also has a Neighbor block which will look at the first six numbers to block them, too.

    Thanks Jake. Like I said above, I'm reinstalling it to see if the same battery usage occurs.

    I only have it set to "warn me" also, not "Blocked".

    I've had a similar situation before. It's really annoying.
