More than 130 million Indians use Truecaller with their mobile numbers as an identity, so it actually makes sense. With TrueSDK we are providing an opportunity for brands as well as the end-users.”

This works like most of the social media logins like Facebook, Twitter, Google, etc. Users of Truecaller who already have a profile, simply need to hit the Login with Truecaller button and details like phone number, email and name are automatically filled in. Further, the Truecaller login system can also replace the OTP method of authentication as Truecaller already has authenticated mobile numbers of the users.

While it is still a new product from the company, it has managed to lure in big names like Ixigo, Oyo Rooms, Mobikwik and many others to implement the TrueSDK.
