Caller identification app Truecaller said that it has reached the mark of 250 million monthly active users and 200 million daily active users globally. The app has 200 million daily active users, of which 150 million are from India, Truecaller said in a statement.
India continues to be the company’s home market with a majority 185 million monthly active users and over 150 million daily active users. Since the beginning of the year, Truecaller has increased its active users with more than 40 million users despite the pandemic, said the company.
Headquartered in Stockholm, Sweden, with offices in Bengaluru, Gurgaon, Mumbai and Nairobi, Truecaller is primarily used for caller ID.
Alan Mamedi, CEO and co-founder, Truecaller said, “Truecaller was built with the vision to make communication more effective for everyone and this is what has fueled this spectacular growth over the years. This vision started with caller ID but now also offers so much more including SMS blocking and even digital loans. We’re on an exciting journey to take Truecaller to the next level, and we are humbled by the trust our users have shown in us.”
Founded in 2009 by Mamedi and Nami Zarringhalam, Truecaller is supported by Sequoia Capital, Atomico and Kleiner Perkins.
