Connection problem 4/5
After last update im not able to search numbers. Internet connection problem. Tried with mobile data and wifi.
Do not install! 1/5
Like many others here have said, my phone went from getting an occasional spam call to multiple spam calls a day. Do not download—you have been warned.
Something wrong with it 2017.04.21 1/5
Works only on wifi, while ios has no data restrictions.
I did noticed huge escalation in a number of spam calls i receive now.
My review 5/5
Not good 1/5

Worked good before, now often stopped finding phone numbers unless it's a landline and offers to search it via google.
Since IOS update, app is worthless! 1/5
By K Capelli
As others have mentioned, you now have to constantly turn the app on in settings, for some reason, it keeps being turned off. Another huge problem I've noticed today, every time I try to "share my contact" with Truecaller, I get a pop up notification saying my connection has been lost. It's not my internet connection nor my phone's internet so the problem is with this app. Unless they fix this asap, I'm deleting this piece of junk.
A good app to ensure we know who the callers are.
Not useful 1/5
By Felix Jo
Just like everyone has been saying, it doesn't automatically blocked the spam calls for you, so you need to manually add it to the block list, which defeat the whole purpose of having this app. It also don't recognize the spam call most of the time, even though sometimes the number is actually already exists in their database.
Also, it seems to have some potential security & privacy issues, since your phone will be listed on their website after you register in their service.
After about a month, I was still getting unwanted calls. But, only about the same as before. Every now and then it worked, and blocked a call, but mostly "no." I kept reporting number for those fake-o calls and my block list was getting super long, maybe reporting the numbers helped others. But I'm deleting it and trying something else now. Pretty disappointing.
Suppose to stop all those unwanted calls. However they still come in even after I update and make sure it is the program for caller ID calls still come in and are not identified at all by truecaller great idea but does not seem to work.
Sounds good 4/5
Need to be turned on time and again on iPhone. Otherwise it is fine.
Not impressed 1/5
Calls come into stock phone app anyway so what's the use also the constant subscription is annoying I deleted it
This app is garbage 1/5
After I installed it, the number of spam calls I received tripled and it doesn't block any calls. I became suspicious by the unprecedented number of spam calls I started receiving, so much so that I dreaded every time my phone rang. Now I believe other reviews that this app just wants to harvest (and probably sell) your information. Do yourself a favour and don't download this app and don't give it access to your contacts. I'm doubful that merely deleting it would erase your information. Anyone giving this app more than 2 stars is a fake.

I've actually gotten more spam calls since I've started using this app. I thought it was supposed to be the opposite way around 🤷🏽♂️🤷🏽♂️🤷🏽♂️
Worthless app 1/5
By Sunshine Souperman
The app rarely identifies a SPAM number and if you get a marketing call you have to manually copy and paste the number into the app so that you could populate its database and even then it won't block the call. Totally useless!

Doesn't work at all anymore. Won't even update anything anymore.

Data collector 1/5
By Hate dumb apps
Before I could even get started, I was prompted to create a profile! This is a spam blocker, not a social media account. Promptly deleted.
Useless on iPhone 1/5
This app does nothing. I still get spam calls and then enter the number to block them in my phone settings. All it wants to do is get access to my contacts. Useless
Why am I creating a profile? I just want to block calls. Uninstall
Worthless App 1/5
By Rocket Master
I installed on my iPhone. This app doesn't block calls. To block a call you have to copy the number and paste it into the app so that it recognizes the phone number as spam. For numbers it recognizes as spam it still rings your phone. It's easier to use the built-in iPhone app to block a caller.
Great App 5/5
App turns off under blocking in settings. 1/5
Has turned off 5 times today. Poor app... rarely blocks anything.

Really like program. But seems to be having problem with Phone blocking setting staying set. I have an iPhone 6s IOS 10.3.1
This just started happening after IOS 10.3.1 update.
A Must if you don't like spam! 5/5
By Bamboo House
I have been using True Caller for over a year now, and love how I can find out who called without having to call back the number. I have friends or people I know in many places so often get a call from someone that happens to be the area, that I may miss otherwise, or get a call from somewhere that is coded as spam, but is a valid call such as my insurance company or other company that is valid for me.
Not sure why the dislikes 4/5
Been using this app and Sync.me side by side and I prefer this app more.
Seems to catch incoming calls quicker, had less annoying ads and they don't take up the whole screen (probably will go to the pay subscription plan soon), and the updating span filter doesn't constantly ask you to sync with Facebook, Twitter and Google like Sync.me does.
Not sure why all the dislike reviewers. I get it, the app needs you to open up your contacts and therefore they will have that info. But it's the nature of the beast, they need to be able to distinguish between your contact and non.
To me, it's a time and annoyance saving app.
I was getting many spam calls and decided to do something about it.
Waste of Time - Fix it!!! 1/5
It worked a few times. Apparently I have to "enable call blocking" every 10 minutes for the blocking to work. Who is disabling my call-blocking if not me???
This app should have "ALWAYS ON" permissions.
Nobody wakes up in the morning and thinks "I wonder if my spam protection is working right now".
COMPLETE TRASH 1/5
This app does nothing that it says it's going to do. It operates only as another phone book and provides no features that apple already doesn't for the iPhone. COMPLETE WASTE OF TIME. THE PEOPLE WHO REVIEW THIS AS ANYTHING ELSE ARE ALL FAKE.
Very good 5/5

so good 4/5

Beware: Personal information might become public 1/5
I initially bought into the hype that this app would be able to help you screen spam calls. Surprisingly enough, a month or so after I signed up I received an unprecedented number of calls from unknown numbers, most of them indeed registered as spam on truecaller.
While doing more research on the Internet I discovered that truecaller had apparently been hacked and it's absolutely not safe to pass on your personal information or give them access to your personal contacts. I subsequently deleted the app and unlisted my number.
Best way to be safe online is to keep your information private. Anything you share will sooner or later be available to the public. Your mobile phone number is the most private information these days and you certainly don’t want to share that with an online service.
Was useful, now can't even get in 1/5
After most recent update, the app requires creating an account EVERY SINGLE TIME! Then it sends a text code. After entering the code it stops working completely. Never get farther than this. Have deleted.
Doesn't block calls 1/5
After a spam number calls me I copy it to Truecaller and it tells me it's a spammer.... thanks for nothing. Garbage app.
Just put phone back up 5/5
Great way to decide whether or not to answer the phone. No pushy sales people to pressure you to tell you about something you never wanted.
בית סחור 5/5
By אמיר גבראן
It catches some calls but there are many, many calls it does not catch at all. I'm disappointed.
Doesn't work automatically 2/5
By be things
Doesn't block the calls and only sometimes gives the caller ID. Most of the time you have to go manually search the call in the app and it will correctly identify the spam call, but then you still have to use iPhone's built in call blocker. It's all too manual and inconvenient. Eventually I just stop bothering with the app and do it myself.
Keeps disabling 2/5
By Amy mell
For the past few weeks, I need to go to my settings and enable the app to block calls. I continue to receive spam calls and need to manually search and block.
Broken garbage 1/5
Keeps autodeactivating itself on ios10. Worthless. Daily I've had to reactivate. Also, as other users have pointed out, it won't block on an iphone (only identify) and most don't even do that. You still have to report and block manually. Waste of time as it has stored hundreds of numbers in my contact list and slows down my phone, making it nearly impossible to reenable when it auto-deactivates as the number list is so long the phone freezes to bring up the switch. To turn back on. Worthless. Only on an Android can you truly block via the app.
True caller 5/5
Wish it sent automatically robos to voice mail..sigh
Waste of time 1/5
This app is a waste of time and it didn't notify me about the Spam numbers until I put it in my block list. It's supposed to notify me with a red screen and it didn't. This app is a lie, I would rate it with zero stars if possible.
Receiving More Spam Now 1/5
I am using Truecaller in addition to a couple of other call blocking apps, and I'm still getting at least three spam calls per day.
The calls originate from different numbers each time, nevertheless, I don't see why their database can't be updated in more real time.
Moreover, I believe Truecaller is based offshore where there are lax spam laws, which is also where most of my spam comes from, and therefore I would not doubt if they are selling lists themselves.
Unfortunately, the only effective way to block calls, that I can think of, is to add people to your safe list, and send everyone else to voicemail. No apps needed for that.
App keeps turning itself off. In 3 months it has flagged only 2 or 3 callers. Not worth the hassle & invasion of my privacy by copying all of my person contacts.
Wants full access to your personal info; forget it! 1/5
Asks for too many permissions it does not need, uninstalled.
Suspicious behaviour too
Now keeps turning off 1/5
For the first few months, it would not report spam calls. Just family calls. After I reported it, it worked.
Now it gas a new problem. It keeps turning itself off under the settings. I have to go back and re-enable it every couple of days if i remember. I believe it is crashing on incoming calls and turning off.
Great App 5/5
This does a pretty good job flagging Spam calls.
