There’s no need to describe the popular app “TrueCaller” but if you never ever heard about it, then I want to explain that this application shows the contact details of unknown numbers calling you. This app stores all its users address books, but even if you never ever use this app before your contact details could be on TrueCaller’s database and for this thanks to someone who’s saved your number in their address book.
The risky thing about this is that if you have your number in TrueCaller database, then people can easily find the registered address via any publicly available Phone book or simply searching on google.
Now what to do for deleting your number from Truecaller:
Follow these steps to deactivate your account from this App. These steps depend on what type of mobile phone you are using such as iPhone, Android, or Window mobile.
