Why Remove the Truecaller Premium Badge?
Here are some of the top reasons you may want to remove the premium badge from your Truecaller profile:
- No longer want to pay for Premium – If you don’t use the Premium features enough to justify the monthly or yearly fee, downgrading and removing the badge saves you money.
- Premium renewal privacy concerns – Some users don’t like that the premium badge announces to all your contacts that you pay for Truecaller Premium.
- Redundant with paid contacts backup – If you also pay for a contacts backup service, Premium may feel redundant.
- Prefer a free experience – You may decide the free Truecaller features are sufficient for your needs.
Whatever your reasons, removing the Truecaller Premium badge only takes a few quick steps. Keep reading to learn how. Note that, you must be already a subscription member to look at these steps.
