Truecaller Opt Out & Unlist Your Number

Truecaller is one of the most popular reverse phone number lookup sites out there, with more than 320 million active users. 

While the site can be handy for blocking spam callers and identifying cold callers, it’s a good idea to unlist and avoid using the service. Not only does Truecaller list individuals’ phone numbers without their knowledge, it also collects users’ International Mobile Subscription Identity, exposing them to unnecessary privacy risks

Thankfully, it’s super easy to unlist your phone number from Truecaller. All it takes is clicking 2 buttons and waiting 24 hours. 

However, your phone number, along with other background information such as your home address, financial information, relatives, and more might still be available on dozens, if not hundreds, of other data broker databases. 

We recommend you opt out from all of them to keep your personal information private and secure.

Opt-out process:  5 minutes

Removal Requirements: Phone number
