Easily Find the Name behind unknown Mobile and Landline Numbers

Unknown phone number lookupHow would it be if you could easily find the name associated with a phone number (mobile & landline) without having to go through the legal complications?

Presenting ‘True Caller’, a brilliant service that helps you find out name of the person associated with any given phone number and the best part being, you can perform a number lookup for not just India or America, but any country across the globe. All you need to do is download & install True Caller application for your phone either from your smart phone’s app store or by visiting m.truecaller.com from your phone browser.

Once you have downloaded and installed the app, you just need to enter a mobile/landline number and TC will look into its database for the owner name of the phone number. At the time of writing this post, TC had over 622 million mobile numbers in their database, so chances are pretty high that you’ll end up finding the name of that anonymous caller.

Other features of the application

It is not all, here is the best feature of the application. True Caller has an embedded feature that will notify you the owner name of any unknown numbers during incoming and outgoing calls provided you have data services running in the background.

unknown mobile number details

Though the application is available for all major smart phone platforms including Android, iOS, Blackberry, Windows & Nokia; at any point of time you can also visit their website to perform an online lookup.

How does the application work?

Worried if your personal data are getting leaked from your telecom operator? We doubt if that’s really the case. In fact its your friends, colleagues and people in your peer who are to be blamed, as there’s a feature inside the app that lets someone sync & update their current phonebook & contacts with the its database. In the process, TC copies all their contact details into its database thus increasing the number of known contacts every second. As simple as that.

Privacy Concerns

A simple Google search will reveal that there are several privacy concerns being raised in the past, regarding True Caller. The Economic Times mentions:

Unlisted private mobile phone numbers of Cabinet ministers such as Kapil Sibal and P Chidambaram, top industrialists such as Mukesh Ambani and Sunil Mittal, celebrities such as Shah Rukh Khan and Sachin Tendulkar are among millions of Indian numbers listed on the database of a Scandinavian app maker, thanks to unsuspecting smartphone users who let the app harvest their phone’s contact list

If you are someone who prefers to remain in incognito mode, you have the option of un-listing your number by visiting deregister page and remain anonymous to other TC users.

    All your contacts (stored in your device) is being shared with whole world, specially the ones using Truecaller, and God know that they might sell it for adds and marketing.
    I tried blocking my contact list in my smartphone device, after that the application refused to work properly. If they let the user to decide, then it’s fair, else they are bunch of apes.
