Gone the days when we were supposed to get scared of such calls, as right now, we can employ the Caller ID apps to grasp the Caller details and his calling reason first. It’s an easy process and merely gets employed only by downloading a fascinating app in your Android smartphone named Truecaller and creating your account.
Truecaller delivers an experience that exceeds the constraints of all other Phonebook and Calling applications trending nowadays. And that’s why it’s ranked as the number 1 top-grossing Communication application on the Google Play Store.
Truecaller was founded in May 2012 by True Software Scandinavia and got succeed in almost all the sectors of its delivery. If we look at its statistics right now, we can find over 1 Billion users who’re daily employing this application to protect them from fraud and grasp all the useful aspects of callers.
“There are hundreds of apps on the app stores for personal safety and location sharing. But none of them work in a way where you can involve your family, friends, the community at large and the law enforcing authorities,” claimed Alan Mamedi, CEO and co-founder of True Software Scandinavia AB.
It was the first Android application, helping you search for contact information about all the unknown numbers. It’s a convenient application, offering you a search menu to inscribe the contact number for getting all the details about the user, like his location, email-id, Call history, and all the required details.
The Truecaller app commences with the first glimpse of logging in to your account. You can complete this process via Google, Facebook, and Yahoo or directly connect with the Truecaller Database by inscribing your contact number and the received OTP. It fundamentally works on a Give and Gets scenario, where you’re needed to engrave just the number of users.
Moreover, you can also enable the Live Caller ID feature of the Truecaller app for using it as a flowing app while receiving or making a call. Its caller ID contains the Name, Location, and Service Provider name of the user with the Truecaller brand logo. Truecaller’s Availability feature makes it possible for you to know if the person you’re about to call is busy or not. For example, if you see a red bell icon next to that number it means that the phone is on silent mode. If you see a red phone icon, it means that person is on the phone.
True Software Scandinavia has integrated third-party apps like WhatsApp to its service which basically means one could make internet calls across messaging apps without having to especially launch them. Users can now call contacts with third-party messaging apps using their Truecaller profile
There are few cons that Truecaller has,
- Too many prompts show up once you block some spam number.
- Someway or the other, they pop up this window, which asks you to make Truecaller your default messaging app. You never know if they get access to some confidential info from your SMS inbox. They should not invade a user’s privacy like this. Staying till the phonebook is more than enough!
- These days if you open up Truecaller, you can see if somebody has put their phone on silent or not. This, I again feel, is an invasion on one’s privacy.
