Contact Requests

Contact Requests are used when you search for someone by name. Since people may have their information protected via Truecaller’s privacy controls, we need to notify them that we are interested in connecting!


Contact requests work much like other types of requests, whereas the person on the other side of the request must accept before any contact information is exchanged. You cannot get a number from Truecaller without the owner of the number approving your request.

Caption: Notifications Tab inside app

In the previous image, you will see a Contact Request has been accepted, and information has been shared. You will find these in the Notifications tab, or if the person is not a Truecaller user, they will receive a text message informing about the request. Contact Requests are a Premium feature that can be purchased or earned for free in your profile.

Truecaller is available for download from your app store or through our website!
