Truecaller Says Indian User Data Is Now Locally Hosted

Aiming to provide secure services to the users, Swedish caller identification Program Truecaller on Wednesday said all of Its Own Indian Consumer data is now hosted in the country.

India has over 60 per cent of Truecaller’s global user base of at least 100 million daily users that are active.

“This is only one of many steps we are taking to ensure superior services.

In accord with its business plans, Truecaller has also doubled the speed in search results for”Caller ID” and”Spam detection” features within the app, he explained.

Using its offices in Bengaluru, Gurugram and Mumbai, more than half of their company’s employees are out of India.

More than half a percentage of overall calls received by Indian users in 2018 were junk calls. On the other hand, the average number of junk calls received in India dropped to 22.3 calls per user/month – 1.5 percent less than a year ago, its findings demonstrated.

On an average, a Truecaller consumer in Brazil received 37.5 spam calls per month – an 81 percent growth of spam calls at a calendar year, stated Truecaller.
