Truecaller Premium Features are many. The free version itself will identify the caller id. But what about fake calls, marketing calls, network calls and spam callers disturbing you in the middle of important work. Also, when you use the free version, lot of ads are displayed.
The benefits of truecaller premium can be seen on a daily use. When you are free from ads and spam callers, your messaging and caller protection will be at the highest level. In addition you can prevent calls outside your phone number list. This makes sure only friends and relative call you. International numbers are automatically blocked. You can privately request information about any caller.

During the installation of Truecaller itself, it asks to become the default dialer app. But if you have denied this option, you can easily set the default calling app in another way. Find the settings of your phone and the default apps. Tap the item that is similar to dialer or dial. Generally, the phone caller app will be the default one.
