How to Remove Your Mobile Number From Truecaller?

Truecaller is a popular app that shows you contact details of unknown numbers calling you. Even you’ve never used the service, your name and number could be on Truecaller’s database, someone else who’s saved your contact details, allowed the app to access them.

Not everyone knows this, but for some fixed-line phones, Truecaller even lists the address of the landline. This doesn’t mean when telemarketers or spammers call from an office address, but ideally you wouldn’t want strangers to know your home address. If someone knows your landline number, they can easily find the registered address via any publicly available phonebook or even by simply searching for your landline number on Google.

For this reason, you should consider removing your number from Truecaller’s database. Note that you can’t remove your number from the service if you are using the app. You’ll have to deactivate your own account to get your number removed.
