Truecaller is a service that offers users an alternative way to identify unknown calls and text messages. The features of the Truecaller application include the possibility of identifying unknown numbers and texts, blocking incoming calls and notifications from unwanted callers and SMS messages.
It’s a real time caller reputation service and uses Artificial Intelligence to identify spam calls to rank spam callers by their answers on whether or not they are spamming.
“By having your real name on your Truecaller profile; employers, clients, friends, family and new friends are easily able to identify you when you call, reducing the chances of your call being blocked or unanswered, ” the company said in a blog statement.

The Truecaller community determines whether the name is ‘badge worthy’ or not.
In case you created your Truecaller profile with a fake name, you can now change it back to your original name to earn the ‘Verified badge’.

Once done, the Truecaller system will triple check with the Truecaller Community to see if there has been a past name change that may require the system to take more time to verify.
“Please note that Verified Badges may take time to acquire on your profile.”, said the company in its blogpost.
