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.
