Remove Your Phone Number from True Caller App

Most of us have the “True Caller” app on our phones to let us know who’s behind those contact-less numbers we keep getting.

But I, for one, don’t like the app and I think it’s too intrusive. It uses your entire contact list and uploads the numbers, along with the contacts you have, to their servers for others to use for reference.

Paranoid people, of course, eat up True Caller. They absolutely have to know who’s that mystery person who keeps calling. If you’re not one of those people and don’t want your phone number to be searchable on that database, there is a solution for you.

In order to unlist yourself from the True Caller database, click on this link. It will make your phone number unsearchable.

The number has to be of the format +country code-phone number, i.e. a Lebanese number would be of the following form: +9613xxxxxx.

The unlisting is offered by the True Caller app itself and if enough people use it, it would eventually defeat the purpose of the app, which isn’t necessarily a bad thing. Though I don’t think many people will jump on this.

Anyway, I’ve unlisted myself. It’s your turn now.

Thank you Roudy for the link.

    • You can keep the app. But your phone number won’t be available for other people to find.
      I’d remove the app though because it would be hypocritical to find others if you don’t wanna be found.

  1. I am more uncomfortable about the app adding my contacts to their database, I feel kinda guilty. But if I uninstalled this thing even then it would not be rectified, right? So what do I do? Can I unlist multiple nos. on their website?
    But I’d also like to add that its very useful for me. Being a girl I am often harassed by unknown callers and this app has helped me.

  7. i want to remove my numbers, but the server is never responding. True caller ought to ask people to confirm before listing. This is infringement of privacy.
