How to Change A Wrong Name in TrueCaller Database

How it Works!

The TrueCaller app works magic in identifying contacts. When a user installs the app, it automatically starts working and helps to know who an unknown caller is by retrieving their information from its database.

The TrueCaller database comprises contact sync data from its users. If you are one of its users, it means you have given the app permission to read your contacts. When this happens, it synchronizes your contacts, store in its database and retrieves them to another user when anyone on your contact list calls them as an unknown caller.

TrueCaller is useful to identify and prevent spam calls. It identifies the name of an unknown caller and their location when your phone rings. Also, a call from an unreliable caller is marked as spam to give you a safe and healthy working space. The same goes with text messages.
