From simple beginnings as a Caller ID and spam blocking app, Truecaller has now become a full-fledged communications platform with calling, SMS, Flash Messages and payment services, the company said.

“We could never have predicted that Truecaller would become a resource for women’s safety in many countries; or that it would be used for e-commerce and courier services around the globe to facilitate the difficult last mile of delivery, or allow more people to experience a data-only product in offline mode,” Mamedi added.

In January, the Stockholm-headquartered Truecaller launched “Truecaller Backup” feature for Android devices which allows users to backup and restore their contacts, call history, block list and settings to Google Drive.

“‘Truecaller Backup’ has been one of the most requested features by its users and will simplify a user’s transition to a new phone or SIM card by securely backing-up their contacts and settings and stored on your Google Drive,” the company said.
