Truecaller has launched TrueSDK which enables third party apps to onboard users with their Truecaller profile and their Truecaller verified phone number.
This service can be used by developers to sign up, update a user’s information, or verify the user’s phone number based identity in their mobile apps through user consent. This feature has been launched with 12 partners including Quikr, Mobikwik, redBus, CarDekho, BharatMatrimony.com, ixigo, OYO Rooms, TO THE NEW Digital, FreshMenu, Terraa, Cash Care and ShopClues.
“At Truecaller, our mission has always been to provide as much information as possible to users about their calls and enabling them to use that information in meaningful ways. In this process, we realized the power and importance of a mobile number, especially when it comes to personal identification. Our aim is to empower third party apps with a credible verification option and enable users to use the app of their choice by making their phone numbers their identity,” said Nami Zarringhalam, Chief Strategy Officer and co-founder of Truecaller.
TrueSDK is currently only available for selected partners on Android platform, but will be open to public in near future. To sign up for TrueSDK contact firstname.lastname@example.org with your app details.
