This feature also gives you protection against harsh people who try to “bad mouth” you. It can become a proof in the court-of-law for online thefts or fraudulent activities.
Who Viewed Your Profile
Though Truecaller does not store any identity data, it works as a caller identification app. If some friend or business executive checks your profile, to find your number or identity, then you can use this feature.
This gives euphoria to know that your dearest friends have checked on your number and are trying to contact you.
On the other side, if you find that some “unknown” person has viewed your profile, you can take preventive measures to stop that person calling you.
View Profile in Private Mode
You want to know the number of your girlfriend, but you don’t want her to know that you have viewed their profile. This is just for privacy purpose.
It should not be misused. Otherwise, you want some phone number of an unknown person for business calling, but you want to keep that as secret.
In that case, this feature helps your identity from others.
Get the Premium Badge
As we know, that an official symbol on your profile can help others recognize you as a special person. You will get a premium badge when you subscribe to this option.
This makes your identification unique and reliable. People who are searching you on Truecaller will notice this badge and will be interested to contact you, as a genuine person.
30 contact requests/month
This is useful if you want to find the phone number of some “unknown” or “personal friend” who has restricted access to his Truecaller profile.
You have a forgotten friend in your childhood, but you would like to contact him. If you do a search, you are likely to get his name.
But his email, address and phone number may be hidden from public access. In that case, you can make a contact request through Truecaller asking him his details.
