What is Truecaller?
Truecaller is a Caller Identification and Spam Blocking service. It has been developed by the Swedish company True Software Sandinavia AB. It is available for Android, iOS, BlackBerry, Symbian and Windows (Phone) operating systems.
It is not that if Truecaller accesses your data then it is very dangerous for you, but it has some advantages too. The basic function of Truecaller is to identify the caller. When you get a call from an unknown number, Truecaller lets you know who the number belongs to. No money is charged from you for this. If this caller ID is not there then it is not possible to identify every unknown number. Apart from this, if you want to block someone, you can block them in just one tap from Truecaller’s Hells.
