Truecaller now has over 100 million daily active users

Popular caller ID app Truecaller now has more than 100 million daily active users, the company has announced.  

Launched in 2009 for Blackberry devices as call ID and spam-blocking service, the company has now grown to a full-fledged communications platform with calling, SMS, Flash Messages and payment services.  

‘’There are only a handful of mobile-only services that impact as many users each and every day and we are humbled to be able to join this exclusive group.’’ the company said in a blog post.

Allan Mamedi, Co-founder and CEO of Truecaller, says the service has also become a resource for women’s safety in many countries, for e-commerce and courier services around the globe to facilitate the difficult last mile of delivery, and enabled more African businesses to accept online payments. In countries like India, he says the app has aided in bridging the digital divide between the urban and growing semi-urban/rural markets.

This is indeed a major milestone for the company which recently opened a regional office in Nairobi.  

”We’re continuously working to make your communication more safe and efficient and the fact that so many of you have joined us validates our mission. ” Mamedi added.
