How to Remove Your Number From TrueCaller – TrueCaller Unlist
I wrote an article on tracing a phone number and search the owner of the number. That post was about a called id app Trucaller. TrueCaller can identify most of the phone numbers. If you are using TrueCaller and receive a call from a number not saved in your contact list, TrueCaller will most probably tell you who is calling.
How TrueCaller Works?
TrueCaller is a mobile app and is available on all popular mobile platforms. When people install the Truecaller app in their smartphones, it grabs all address book from the phone and puts it in the Truecaller database. If you have saved a number by contact name “Friend”, it will identify the number as Friend. Millions of TrueCaller users have given their address book to the company and it uses the data for offering called id. Any one can search forr a number to know the name of the person using the phone.
The app works fine in most of the regions but it also raises privacy issues.
