Secure Messenger Service By Truecaller, Called Truemessenger Launches In India.
Truecaller is a Scandinavian firm that makes security apps for Android. In a thanks giving gesture, it has launched another security and alert system for SMS to identify the sender and block spams, first in India. It will be released for other countries a
Truecaller aims to expand its base in India to almost double of the current share by releasing this new application called Truemessenger. It is similar to Truecaller that can identify the sender and help you block unwanted calls even without any prior knowledge or contact history in your social media or address book. This innovative feature is now made available for the SMS feature too. Truemessenger can identify the sender and can alert you relevant information that can help you assess their credentials and authenticity. You can also block senders using this application. Truemessenger can also block spams automatically and alert you.
Their CEO Alan Mamedi confirmed that any sender that sends more than 100 or 200 SMSes per day is automatically identified as a spammer and blocked by the application. Currently Truecaler has a base of 80 million in India and with this exclusive launch, it aims to increase it to 150 million by the end of this year. India is their biggest market base and Mamedi confirmed their dedication yet again by this gesture. Currently the applications have been free, but soon they are planning to monetize them. Their current focus is on expanding the user base, improve user experience and enhance their application. Krishnamurthy is Turecallers Country Manager and Vice President for Asia. He added that Truecaller has a workforce of just 10 people in India and it plans to double it by the end of this year, which means that the Scandinavian company is in the mood of serious business.
You might also see the application starting to release different membership plans by the end of 2015. Currently, Truecaller is not targeting towards a revenue generated business. Krishnamurthy also added that they have removed any and all forms of advertisements and if they do not achieve an expansion of around 150 million, it would be really demotivating and disappointing for the startup and its future plans. Truemessenger will show you the names and probably any other information when they SMS you. Thus, you can choose to let it in your inbox or block it.
