What is TrueCaller?
Truecaller is a privacy killer app. The application allows users to block unwanted calls, identifies callers, and permits the user to search for all public listed phone numbers published in 25 countries, such as Canada, India, Italy, and the United States.

Truecaller works like a telephone directory. When one install Truecaller and register their phone no. on it. Truecaller’s database will sync all contacts saved on the user’s mobile phone. Truecaller is equipped with user-friendly interface. It also provides more information about any contact number, can see the location as well. One can personalize user profile by adding a photo, link with social media accounts like Google+ or Facebook.
How TrueCaller Works:
TrueCaller is equipped with some useful functions, such as name display, reverse number lookup, location and number of the caller, and a social website feature that notifies followers when the user is on the phone. What this application is most coveted for, however, is its ability to support a list of callers the user blocks in order to prevent unwanted calls, whether from salespeople or individuals with whom the user no longer wants to speak.
In addition, TrueCaller also notifies the user of spam calls that are being received and tagged by other users who utilize the application’s database. This particular feature helpfully allows a TrueCaller user to block spam before they even receive it.
Now, say somebody calls you with unknown number and you do not recognize this number, the Truecaller starts working and it will search its whole database and try to find that unknown number is related to someone. If it finds then it displays his/her name and location. After that, you can guess who is calling. But the condition is happening this thing is that, when any truecaller user has saved that unknown number on their phone with any name, that name is going to display. This is the best feature of Truecaller.

How to use TrueCaller?
Download TrueCaller and installed on your phone, the first time you start up TrueCaller, you’ll be asked to register your phone number. Once your phone is confirmed and is legit you will be provided a space for your name and email id to enter or an option to connect with your social accounts.
Call and SMS Blocking
While PrivacyStar used multiple lists for it to screen unwanted numbers, Truecaller keeps it simple with a single blacklist to which you add numbers. You will, however, have to enter the Settings menu and toggle on SMS blocking. Unlike other call blocking apps, Truecaller cannot block partial numbers or whole area codes.
If a blocked number attempts to call you, the caller hears a busy signal and you hear nothing. Truecaller only generates a helpful visual notification with the caller’s information. It also has a combination call log and searches history, though it is hidden as a sub-page of the search page. When a blocked number sends you an SMS message, you’ll receive no notification and there’s no log to view either
Identify Caller ID
When you receive a call from someone not in your contacts, the app drops its own caller ID information window over the stock caller ID message. While smart, it’s inelegantly executed. You can actually see most of the caller info on the call screen peeking out from underneath Truecaller’s window.
After a call has come in, you can easily mark it as spam or add the number to your contacts. You can also view a map of where your call came from.
