How Truecaller Works

Tuesday, May 27th, 2014

Truecaller is very popular now. It is a global dynamic directory of phone numbers. When I have installed it on my mobile I was also quite impressed with its functionality and working. I was thinking how truecaller works ? They have given a page which explains how Truecaller works. But after reading that I understood that they have not disclosed 100% how truecaller works.

I know many of us still doesn’t know how Truecaller works. But still we are using it because it is really a good service. Many of normal users of it believes that Truecaller is doing some MAGIC and it helps people !! That’s not right.

Now lets come to the point. I have got idea about how Truecaller works !! I will explain it clearly so that those who still believes in Truecaller MAGIC will understand what happens when you install and search using Truecaller.

I have seen the CEO of Truecaller has answered this question publically in a forum. Below is what he said

“Truecaller is based on an opt-in crowdsourced solution where our users can opt-in (only name and numbers) and at any time also opt out their information. It is always disabled by default. Also, anyone can at any time permanently unlist their phone number from our website”

This is not the actual answer. Then how truecaller works actually?? Here is how.

When you install Truecaller App to your mobile it will sync your contacts ( The contacts/phonebook in your mobile) to its database. Saying clearly Truecaller will store your contact numbers and names to their database. They will have all contacts of truecaller installed phones.!! When someone searches for a number they will search in their database that is actually added from users phone. So obviously they number will be available in their database. Almost all smartphone users have Truecaller in their phone. So they claim that they can give most of the numbers and names.

Now there is funny part !! If one of your friend have saved your nick name or any funny name as your name in their phone and if they have installed Truecaller on their phone, mostly that nick name will be shown while someone searching your number !! There is a chance of duplicate numbers with many different names. So they frequently crawl users phone and database so that most recent names will be updated and shown to users. Do not worry you can register on their website and add your original name and details. If you do so only this details will be shown publicly if someone searches. If you do not want to show your number and name to others you can remove your name and number through their website.
