How to Remove Your Number From Truecaller?


Truecaller is a popular app that shows you contact details of unknown numbers calling you. It crowds sources contact details from all its users' address books. So even if you've never used the service, your name and number could be on Truecaller's database, thanks to someone else who's saved your contact details and allowed the app to access them.

On one hand its very useful to identify the person behind the unknown numbers while going back to the other side, if you look at someone, the same thing will happen in counter verse anyone can look at you using your number. Let us consider if you mistakenly dialed to an unknown person, then there may be a chance he can identify you and misuse your identity. The risk factor increases that unknown person will easily identify you because it displays the location and mostly contacts are suffixed or prefixed with some specific name such as an organization or institute name or something else which makes the search simple. So its better to know how to unlist your number from the Truecaller’s database for your privacy reason.
