Protecting children from spam and fraud 

Hiya recently partnered with Gabb Wireless, a leader in providing safe tech for children, to protect them from spam and fraud calls in the United States. 

The spam and fraud call problem affects everyone with a phone number, no matter their age or location. According to Hiya’s 2022 State of the Call Report, Americans received an average of 18 spam and fraud calls per month last year. The collaboration between Hiya and Gabb is bringing the industry’s most advanced call protection service, Adaptive AI, to the Gabb Wireless Phone as well as future models and, most importantly, provides a critical layer of protection for kids so they are only communicated with as intended.

"This is a unique opportunity to deploy our services to protect one of the most vulnerable groups of phone users. Hiya’s services are directly integrated into devices, networks, and apps worldwide, and we’re excited to add another partner and bring our technology to the people who need it,” said Kush Parikh, President at Hiya.

Gabb Wireless will integrate Hiya’s call protection features directly into the phone dialer on the Gabb Phone, an Android device.

“Protecting kids from unwanted contact and introducing them to technology safely is at the forefront of everything we do. We're excited about our new partnership with Hiya,” said Nate Randle, CEO of Gabb Wireless.
