Truecaller stands against women’s harassment and strives to make communication more safe and efficient. Through stories of our users in India, we realized that normalizing SMS and call harassment was very real, and the effects it has on victims is devastating.

One of the major motivations was the lack of research and statistics we found on the topic. Since then, we have begun to conduct yearly reports on the harassment women face in communication, and bring awareness towards this issue.
