How to remove your number from the truecaller global phone directory
Your name in the truecaller search result is not entered by you unless you created a profile in the truecaller. Usually, it has a name given by your friends, neighbours, office employees etc…
No matter how they saved your name, there is an option to remove your name from the truecaller database.
Just go to your preferred search engine, mine is GOOGLE and search ” Truecaller un-list“. In the search result, you can see the link for the truecaller un-list page.
On the truecaller unlisting page they mention that they will remove your number within 24 hours. And also they recommend you deactivate your account in the truecaller app if you already have one. But when I’m going this my number was removed without deactivating the account. Maybe they will add it again after few days.
