How Truecaller can save you from robocallers and spammers
We’ve all been in that awkward spot where you get a call from an unknown number, pick it up and it’s the same old credit card guy from the same old bank trying to sell you a new but even more exploitative service.
I have seen scary movies all my life. However, nothing scares me more than an unknown number on my screen. If I ever direct a horror film in the future, you already know its plot.
Scam phone calls are a part of the billion-dollar scamming industry that uses various modes of communication to steal money, sensitive information and your precious time.
Around 68.4 million Americans reported that they lost money from phone scams in the year 2022. How much did they lose? A staggering cumulative amount of $39.5 billion from May 2021 to May 2022.
A normal person would assume that people are getting smarter, more tech-literate, and scam calls are no longer effective. Yet the phone scamming industry continues to grow every single day.
Are you starting to get why I compared these unknown calls with horror movies? Yeah. Luckily, this scary movie has a protagonist that will protect you from the creepy bad guys.
Truecaller against Spammers and Scammers
Truecaller is an all-in-one communication app that safeguards your phone and you by identifying unknown numbers and protecting you from robocallers, scammers and spammers.
Not just that, the app can also help you avoid awkward interactions with those company people trying to sell you their amazing scheme.
Truecaller’s Caller ID can help you identify each incoming call (domestic or international) on your device. The app integrates perfectly with your phone’s calling UI and displays information like the caller’s name and location.
If it detects that a scammer or telemarketer is trying to contact you, a warning appears right onto your screen. You can even enable automatic spam blocking for even more peace of mind.
With Truecaller installed on your smartphone, you can be sure that no one can attempt to steal your precious data, time or hard-earned money.
The good things don’t end here, the app comes with built-in messaging functionality allowing you to use it as your main SMS app. It even organizes your messages into different categories based on priority.
You can track upcoming bills, delivery status, bank transactions, and much more, all in one place. And don’t worry, the UI doesn’t flashbang you at night as it comes with a dark theme as well.
You can further improve the protection by opting for their paid plans (Premium and Gold) that offer even more advanced features like ghost calls, advanced spam blocking, the ability to see who viewed your profile, and more.
The Incognito Mode is my favorite. Just like the name suggests, it lets you view other profiles without sending the user a notification with your name in it.
Truecaller is truly a versatile communication app that you will never regret having on your phone. Go ahead, give it a shot and I am sure you’ll never experience a scary unknown call again without Truecaller right by your side.
