Phone Number Verification Privacy Notice
The third-party android app that you wish to access offers a number of ways to authorize you to sign up or log in to it. One way to do so is by using the Truecaller phone number verification service (the “Verification Service”) to verify your phone number.
What This Privacy Notice Covers
Purpose of processing
If you decide to use the Verification Service and share your phone number with Truecaller to be authorized to sign up or log in to a third-party android app, you also agree to your phone number being shared with the third-party apps. Truecaller will use your phone number to trigger a missed call to you OR send you an SMS confirmation code (OTP) that can be used by you to verify your phone number.
If you subsequently wish to sign up or log in to other third-party apps that use the Verification Service, Truecaller will use the information that has been previously shared with it to verify your phone number to enable you to be authorized to sign up or log in to such third-party apps, without the need for an additional missed call OR SMS based verification.
Information we collect
If you decide to use the Verification Service, Truecaller will collect the following information to provide the service:
- your name;
- your phone number;
- other information that the publisher of the third-party app that you are seeking to access may choose to share with Truecaller to enable it to use the Truecaller Verification Service in its app.
If you decide not to use the Verification Service, but still wish to log in to the third-party app, you are free to use one of the other methods that the third-party app offers for authorization to sign up or log in or verifying your phone number.
How we use information that we collect
If you have any questions or concerns or wish to amend or delete the information that you have shared you may contact us directly at:
