The Swedish app Truecaller has been amongst the top useful trends for smartphones since its launch more than ten years ago. The ID, identifier, service has been a favorite of the local and international audiences, and it’s daily utilized by millions of people. Apparently Truecaller is planning on taking its success a step further by expanding the realm of its services.
The issue of online privacy – protection – has been in the spotlight for ages; major and most popular apps are facing privacy compromising accusations and clearly Truecaller is no different than others! Reportedly, the online ID app Truecaller is collecting far more important, private info and data about its massive number of users and without any consent. For the Swedish service to function properly, there must be a database containing all of the contacts of any user, with each contact assigned to a Truecaller ID. It’s quite well-known that most apps are currently gathering contacts list and geographical locations; but the case is different with Truecaller.
