Truecaller, the caller ID and telephone search engine, today launched a brand new app for personal safety: Guardians.
The app is a labour of love, built over the past 15 months by a dedicated team from Stockholm and India.
Guardians is available as a free download from Google Play Store & Apple App Store.
All features are free to use – there are no ads or premium tiers.
Alan Mamedi, CEO & Co-founder of True Software Scandinavia AB said, “Our engineering team has a proven track record of building great user experiences and we have also crossed the milestone of 270 Million active users (200 Million in India alone”).
Elaborating about the product, company sources said that Guardians has a simple onboarding process.
If you are already a Truecaller user, you can sign in with one tap.
If you’re not a Truecaller user, your phone number will be verified using a missed call or OTP.
The app needs only three permissions: your location, contacts (so that you can select and invite your personal Guardians) and phone permission (to show your phone status to your Guardians).
