New Delhi: Truecaller today unveiled TrueSDK which enables third party apps to easily onboard users with their Truecaller profile and their Truecaller verified phone number. This service can be used by developers to sign up, update a user’s information, or purely verify the user’s phone number based identity in their mobile apps through user consent. Available to registered third party apps and currently Android only, this feature is launched with 12 partners who have onboarded to simplify the app onboarding and user verification process. Some of our esteemed partners include India’s popular apps namely Quikr, Mobikwik, redBus, CarDekho, BharatMatrimony.com, ixigo, OYO Rooms, TO THE NEW Digital, FreshMenu, Terraa, Cash Care and ShopClues.
“At Truecaller, our mission has always been to provide as much information as possible to users about their calls and enabling them to use that information in meaningful ways. In this process, we realized the power and importance of a mobile number, especially when it comes to personal identification. Our aim is to empower third party apps with a credible verification option and enable users to use the app of their choice by making their phone numbers their identity,” said Nami Zarringhalam, Chief Strategy Officer and co-founder of Truecaller.
TrueSDK helps both the users to quickly use their credentials that are already verified with Truecaller to easily engage with 3rd party apps of their choice.
Commenting on the newly launched platform, Priyam Bose, Director Worldwide Developer Relations at Truecaller says, “Phone numbers are quickly becoming the primary personal identity to verify users in the global mobile arena. App Developers are looking for ways to minimize friction in user onboarding and engagement flows. TrueSDK gives developers an opportunity to fulfill these needs and overtime bridge offline and online identity gap. Instead of having every app developer build and maintain their own systems, they can now use TrueSDK and instead focus more on their core aspects of their app led offering.”
