Truecaller is an app that provides Caller ID and spam blocking services. It’s a bit different from the data broker websites we typically cover. The Truecaller app intentions are to provide better visibility around inbound personal calls for its users while limiting scam risks.
Regardless, you may still want your phone number to be removed from Truecaller’s system, especially if you do not plan to use the service.
We put together this guide to detail how to opt out of Truecaller’s system as well as additional information on its platform.
How to remove your Number from Truecaller
The Truecaller unlist process is straight forward and to the point. We’ve outlined the steps below. Note: this is the unlisting process if you do not have an account with Truecaller.
