Frequently Asked Questions:

1. Would it Change the Name on TrueCaller after Registering?

Many people face the issue of incorrect display of their name, when someone calls, even after registering with the right name.

The reason behind it is, that TrueCaller crowdsources the information. If your current phone number previously belonged to someone else, the TrueCaller database may be carrying the old information. It often happens when you newly acquire a new phone number.

Let’s assume, your name is XYZ and you work at an electronic shop. It is possible that your clients & customers have saved your name as “XYZ Electronics Shop” in their phone contact. When TrueCaller will gather this information from many phone books, it will assume that your phone number belongs to a person whose name is “XYZ Electronics Shop”, and it shows like that.
