Unlist your number from Truecaller directory on Android, iPhone, Windows or website with a simple guide below.

Truecaller is one of the most popular global call detail indexing and caller ID service with social media integration to keep the phonebook up-to-date with pictures and birthdays. The Truecaller can be a lifesaver in many circumstances. It can is very much useful to identify the identity of the unknown number. The Truecaller works as on a website and also has an App with more features to integrate with a smartphone.

How Truecaller gets your contact Details?

Have you ever wondered how Truecaller knows about your contact number and other info? Basically, if a person installs the TC App, the App asks for Contact Permissions. And the TrueCaller scans all the contacts in his phonebook and stores it over its server. Therefore, even if you do not use Truecaller but any person who had saved your contact and uses TrueCaller App, directly or indirectly gives access to his PhoneBook to the App making your details public.

But situations do arrive when you want to remove yourself from Truecaller Database and unlist your name and number from Truecaller. Today in this post I will tell you all the methods to unlist yourself.

How Unlist Your Number from Truecaller?

Using an official Website

Step 1. Go to www.truecaller.com/unlisting/

Step 2 Enter your number that you’d like to remove.

Step 3. Verify ‘I’m Not a Robot’

Step 4. You will now receive a confirmation message once your number has been successfully unlisted in 24 hours.

If you are a Verified User

If you’re Truecaller user and have verified your number you must first Deactivate your account.

  • Open the Truecaller application on your Smartphone.
  • Tap on the 3 vertical lines/dots to open more options
  • Click on settings.
  • Now tap on about under the support tab.
  • Scroll down and Deactivate account.
  • Hit the Yes button.
  • Now go to the official website and unlist the number as given in steps #1
  • You will now receive a confirmation message of number unlisting. It may take 24 hrs for the change to take place.

Conclusion: The number will be unlisted within 24-36 hours but Truecaller doesn’t guarantee the permanent removal of the number.

I recommend you to check the removal of your number and name from the directory on the continual basis.
