Thankfully, you can use DoNotPay to remove your number from Hiya in just a few clicks. We can also help you remove personal information from the internet easily.

Why Removing Your Number From Hiya Is Difficult

Hiya profits from having your information in its database. The company sells caller profile information, especially phone numbers, to identify calls and block unwanted ones. They won't allow you to delete your number from their database easily, even after opting out of the service.

Hiya also sells users' contact information to brokers, who sell it to advertisers to create targeted ads. For this reason, the app makes it difficult for users to delete their contact information, knowing too well they're likely to give up once they encounter many hurdles along the way.
