My leader in discovering caller numbers easily.

5.0 2 months ago

Comments: The truth is that my experience with this program was ideal in identifying the caller’s identity and also helping others identify annoying numbers that I had answered before by adding them to the block list easily.

Pros:

I got rid of the problem of not Knowing the unknown numbers that were not registered on my phone helped me a lot in identifying the caller and eliminating the ghost of annoying numbers before answering the call. Having this program on the phone is essential for me.

Cons:

I did not like the amount of annoying ads that appear in the free version.

The Ultimate Call Management App

4.0 8 months ago

Comments: Truecaller's core benefits include reduced interruptions, enhanced call management and mainly the convenience of identifying unknown callers. It is a versatile app that addresses various issues in this day and age and I've benefitted tremendously with it as it as decreased my chance of getiing scammed greatly.

Pros:

Truecaller has really made my life better, with the feature that can detect who's calling you or it can check whether it is a spam call or not. In this digital age, an app like Truecaller is a blessing as it helps us to stay protected from scammers. The app also has the feature to block unknown number which in my opinion is an amazing feature.I've been using Truecaller for more than 4 years and I can confidently say that I use it on a regular basis. Apart from that since it is an app with simple design even a novice who's new to using smartphones would be able to set it up as it is very easy to implement.

Cons:

The thing I dislike about the app is that I get frequently bombarded by ads which is quite frustrating. Apart from that, it also consumes a lot battery life as it is resources intensive.

Take control of your life by knowing who is calling!

5.0 2 years ago

Comments: Truecaller is an innovative idea to help you block spam calls and use Caller ID, but it calls for a heavy dose of caution to save you from an invasion of privacy.

Pros:

1. You will instantly know who calls you - a new number, a telemarketer, a fraudster, etc. 2. It effectively blocks spam calls, unwanted calls, frauds, and junk SMS messages. 3. You can search any number in the world and get to know who it belongs to if that number was ever used in the Truecaller network, directly or indirectly. 4. The community-based spam reporting helps in weeding out pesky marketing callers and fraudsters. 5. It can block spam calls even before it rings, giving you peace of mind. 6. Premium level access offers you much more advanced spam blocking and a much safer experience with loads of helpful caller information at your disposal. 7. It silently works in the background, and you get effortless valuable support regarding caller ID, profile information, and spam blocking. 8. In premium mode, you can also go incognito, go ad-free, get unlimited contact requests, or get notified about who viewed your profile. Isn’t it great to know who is searching for your phone number without letting them know? 9. You can keep your inbox properly organized and free from spam messages. 10. You can also research a new number before you call someone to know who that person is and their detailed profile.

Cons:

1. It depends on community information only. Hence if you get a call from a new SIM or anonymous call, it cannot identify the details. 2. There are deep security concerns as you must share your contact book to start using the app. 3. Many valuable features are available only to premium users. 4. The information about the caller may also be old, obsolete, and not updated because the person is not using Truecaller or is not related to the community. 5. Some profile theft issues exist where people update inaccurate data and use it to impersonate others.

This app works like a magic.

5.0 last year

Comments: Truecaller has been a truly incredible experience for me. This app is fantastic for monitoring contacts and seeing who is calling us. This is one of my most used and favorite apps. This software isn't just for filtering spam and revealing contact names; with the premium version, we get a lot more, such as scheduled self-calling, video calling background, and even messaging with the call. This app is recommended for everyone.

Pros:

Truecaller is a must-have application for your smartphone. This effectively prevents spam calls and messages. This program displays the contact's name in an incoming call even if the contact is not saved in our phone. This program does genuinely assist users in getting rid of scammers by alerting user. One of the most popular features of this software is that it literally warns you to who is attempting to phone you before the call occurs. Within this program, we can make free internet calls and send free messages.

Cons:

When it comes to incoming phone alerts, I've had a lot of problems. It occasionally does not appear and never loads. The premium feature is somewhat inexpensive, but they can alter the pricing so that every customer, regardless of income, can buy their service.
