TrueSDK to Help Apps Verify Users via Phone Numbers
Feb 18, 20162 min readEdited on Apr 21, 2016
Today we announce TrueSDK, which enables registered third party apps to easily onboard users with their Truecaller profile and verified phone number.
Since 2009, Truecaller has been an evolving app, and very involved in helping our users become more in tune with their calling experience. People are picking up their mobile phones and becoming excellent communicators simply by using Truecaller, Truedialer, and Truemessenger. Country by country, barriers to knowledge are quickly eroding with the advancement of the internet and apps. It is only natural that our ability to recognize who wants to get in touch with us should be clear and true.
It is also only natural that with our evolving suite of apps, we offer an even more advanced way for developers to get involved, and easily onboard their own users for their creations.
Today we announce TrueSDK, which enables registered third party apps to easily onboard users with their Truecaller profile and verified phone number. This service can be used by developers to offer sign up, update a user’s information, or purely verify the user’s phone number based identity in their mobile apps through user consent.
The mobile number has a powerful importance when it comes to personal identification; some might say it is one of our most personal possessions that we carry everywhere we go. They 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.
As our co-founder and Chief Strategy Officer, Nami Zarringhalam, states, at Truecaller, our mission has always been to provide as much information to users in meaningful ways.
With TrueSDK you have:
- Phone number based onboarding and verification
- Free to use and no verification cost for existing Truecaller users
- Significantly reduces friction in user on boarding
- Permission based flow
- Light weight client side SDK and minimal changes needed on developer’s backend
Currently, TrueSDK has 12 partners that are ready to launch their app onboarding with the power of Truecaller. Our esteemed partners include India’s popular apps: Quikr, Mobikwik, redBus, CarDekho, BharatMatrimony.com, ixigo, OYO Rooms, TO THE NEW Digital, FreshMenu, Terraa, Cash Care and ShopClues.
This development opportunity is currently only available for selected partners on Android platform, but will be open to public in near future. To sign up for TrueSDK contact email@example.com with your app details.
