In some cases, you may wish to remove your mobile or landline number from Truecaller so that the number will not be listed in the Truecaller search list. So here, we will check how we can unlist a number from Truecaller.
Before proceeding, you should know that once the number is deleted from the Truecaller database, it will not be shown to others while you call and the number will not be available once searched.
Steps to Unlist Phone Number from Truecaller.com Website
The first thing to be done is to deactivate the Truecaller account for the number you will unlist. If the number you are looking to be removed or unlisted from Truecaller is already registered with Truecaller. Then first, you need to deactivate it. To do so, follow the steps.
- Step 1: Open Truecaller application on your mobile.
- Step 2: Click on the menu on the top left.
- Step 3: Click on the settings option from the list.
- Step 4: Then, click on the Privacy Center.
- Step 5: From the new page, click on the Deactivate option. Now a new window will appear for the confirmation. Click on ‘Yes’. Now, your Truecaller account will be deleted.
Once the Truecaller account is deleted, you can move forward to the next step. Open the browser on your mobile or desktop and go to the Truecaller.com website (https://www.truecaller.com/unlisting)
Earlier, the TrueCaller website showed the country in the list, and you only needed to enter the mobile/phone number in the provided field after selecting the country. But it got changed now and, you currently need to manually enter the whole phone number and country code. So follow the pattern that includes the + sign or 00 followed by country code, then the actual phone number to remove it from TrueCaller.
E.g., If you wish to delete a US Number from Truecaller, say 234 567 7890 is the US Phone number, you need to enter +1234567890 to remove the United States Phone number from the TrueCaller system. Similarly, if you are unlisting an Indian number, say 9012345678, then enter the number with the Indian country code as +919012345678. Here +1 and +91 are the country code of the United States and India, respectively, in the international format. So in your case, you need to provide your country code (the country where the number belongs) accordingly.
After entering the number, click on I am not a robot option, for the verification and finally click on the Unlist button.
Now, a confirmation window will appear asking for your permission. Click on Unlist button in the Popup window and it is done.
Finally, it will show another popup, and you can see the message saying TrueCaller will remove the number from the database within the next 24hrs.
Note: Once you unlist a number, it will take time to reflect. The number will still be visible in the search for a few hours, and most probably within one day, it will be removed entirely.
