How TrueCaller Works?
Most of us are still curious that how truecaller app works and from where they get all information. Basically when someone installed the true caller app on their smartphones, immediately you can see an end user agreement where the app asks the user to allow access to their contact list, after that the app scan all the contact names and number from your mobile and sync with their servers and create a list in their database.
Now when someone calls you, the app searches the same number from 100 of directories in their database and shows you the most appropriate name of the caller on your display. Only if the number already present in their database.
TrueCaller also able to trace spam calls, if large number of users reported the same number as spam in truecaller app, then it listed that number as spam in their database, so from the next time it will automatically block that number if someone receives call from that same number and user has installed the true caller app already.
Suppose, your name is Mr.X but a large number of your friends saved your name as Mr.Y in their contact list. So the app syncs the same name in their database. Then, whenever you call someone the truecaller app shows them the most preferred name of your’s that is Mr.Y in this case. You can also remove your number from TrueCaller Database.
Truecaller doesn’t require you to install their app on your phone to sync your information in their database. Your number might be available on true caller directories even you not added your number to it.
