On its official launch, Nami Zarringhalam, Chief Strategy Officer and co-founder of Truecaller, said:
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.
Priyam Bose, Director Worldwide Developer Relations at Truecaller, said:
Phone numbers are quickly becoming the primary personal identity to verify users in the global mobile arena. App Developers are looking for ways to minimize friction in user onboarding and engagement flows. TrueSDK gives developers an opportunity to fulfill these needs and overtime bridge offline and online identity gap. Instead of having every app developer build and maintain their own systems, they can now use TrueSDK and instead focus more on their core aspects of their app led offering.
