Bengaluru: Truecaller, the leading global platform for verifying contacts and blocking unwanted communication, announced the very significant milestone of 300 million users monthly, cementing its position as one of the largest caller ID and spam detection services in the world.
Just over a year ago, the company was 250 million strong, which means 50 million new users have adopted Truecaller globally since October 2020 in order to build their safety net.
Launched over 11 years ago, the Truecaller app is available across the globe supporting multiple languages. However, India continues to be the largest market with over 220 million active users, with a reach that is spread across the country.
The 300 million milestone achieved on 22 November is a testament to the trust and faith that consumers have in the platform.
Apart from the core features of call identification and spam blocking, Truecaller has launched features like Smart SMS, Inbox Cleaner, Full-Screen Caller ID, Group Voice Calling, and others for an enriching user experience and taken various initiatives in the recent past like covid relief to help provide easy access to a large set of updated information related to covid designated hospitals, test centers and even identifying scammers to save people from dealing difficult situations.
“We started small but always had big ambitions for Truecaller. To reach 300 million active users is a milestone for all of us who have worked hard to make Truecaller the fantastic platform that it is today. Over the past decade, we have worked hard to make Truecaller the vital service that is used by so many and I am humbled by the trust that so many millions of users put in our platform.
We have a clear strategy to continue growing our company by developing the product to enhance the user experience and thereby welcome even more users in the future,” Alan Mamedi, Truecaller CEO and Co-Founder Alan Mamedi said.
