The app serves a great purpose in a country such as India. Many people, being unaware of the scammers and their practices fall prey to their tricks. During the event, Truecaller CEO and Co-Founder, Alan Mamedi said that they have over 270 million active users in India, and about 5 million spam calls are reported every day on the platform.
