Using Truecaller on your Windows computer is actually very easy but if you are new to this process, you will definitely need to pay attention to the steps listed below. This is because you will need to download and install a Desktop App emulator for your computer. We will help you download and install Truecaller on your computer in 4 simple steps below:

The importance of the emulator is that it emulates or immitates an android environment on your computer, making it super easy to install and run android apps from the comfort of your PC without buying a phone that runs android. Who says you cannot enjoy both worlds? To begin, you can download such an emulator app made by too top dogs in the space.
A. Nox App . OR
B. Bluestacks App .
Personally, I recommend the "B" option as Bluestacks is very popular so if you run into any trobles using it, you can find good solutions on Google or Bing (lol). 


2: Now Install the Software Emulator on your Windows PC

If you successfully downloaded the Bluestacks.exe or Nox.exe, go to your Downloads folder on your computer or anywhere you ususally store downloaded files.
Once you have find it, click it to install the application. It should start the installation process on your PC.
Click Next to accept the EULA License agreement.

  • WORTHLESS MAIN BENEFIT IS ALLOWS REPORTING OF A SPAMMER - GEE THANKS

    1
    By LeonJon
    I find the app worthless, and the cost to privacy not near worth the price of giving the developers FULL ACCESS TO EVERY SINGLE CONTACT ON YOUR DEVICE. There are two main benefits to this app. One, is to allow you to report a spam caller as a spammer to the developer - Gee Thanks (can you hear the sarcasm dripping in my voice?). Two, allows you to double check a number that has just phone you, to see if other app holders have previously reported the number as a Spammer. Really do not understand the near five star review average, in fact I’m baffled by it. Someone, please explain to me how this is not a worthless app. This is an update to my prior review, which follows. [This issue has been resolved, But the app is worthless.] In order to set up Truecaller on the iPhone, in my case an iPhone 7, to to Settings>Phone>Call Blocking & Identification to turn on Truecaller. The problem is, Truecaller does not appear in the Settings. It appears in my family’s iPhone 6 and iPhone 5. Since Truecaller does not warn about not working with iPhone 7 in its self description in the App Store, I’ve given it one star. I would have given it zero stars, but Apple does not provide the zero star option.
  • Increased Spam/Robo Calls

    By Tasticks
    My number is registered under the National Do Not Call list so I rarely used to receive spam, marketing or calls (switchboard) calls. However, since installing and using this app, I’ve gotten at least one spam call per day — sometimes three. After some investigating, I read other app users are having a similar experience regarding this app’s privacy policy. It’s almost as if the app is catering to spammers by providing them with your info. Also, this app only allows you to search numbers after a call or text. It’s not preventive. It does provide some names but most of the time, it doesn’t. Most people are able to self identify with these apps so the results will be whatever information a person has volunteered, which may not necessarily be their legal or government name (i.e., “Mr. L”). Use with caution.
  • No longer effective

    I have used Truecaller for the past 3 years. It was great at identifying mystery numbers, especially those reported by other users as spam. It was integrated into my phone, stopping blocked calls before they rang. And the database updated quickly every time the app was opened. Deservedly, it was picked up by reviewers as an effective tool. But for the last 5 mont, the app has been totally useless. It does not update its database on opening, and updating it manually is very, very slow. It rarely finds the numbers calling me and no longer blocks them. Short story is that it was once a 5-star app and now is a 2-star app. I'm moving on to something else. What happened, Truecaller - did fame go to your head?
  • Worse than the problem it purports to solve

    By Quad quad
    Once this app is on your phone a red screen will pop up saying ‘SPAM’ every time someone on their list calls. This isn’t often - it only blocks a fraction of unwanted calls - but you will always know about it when a spam call comes in. Infuriating! I don’t want to be notified when a spam call comes in - I want it blocked before my phone goes off!!! A far better and simpler solution is just to block unwanted calls from within your phone. Once “block caller” is enabled for a number you will never hear from them again. Nothing. But guess what? You can’t block calls on the Truecaller list, even after the app is deleted. It’s almost as though Truecaller is paid by the spammers!
  • Great app but not so good on IOS

    By GBZA
    Although, it doesn’t work like it is on the Androids, but it comes handy whenever I need to check unknown numbers , and there it works at about 98% on all numbers , however I didn't grant the app permission to my contacts anymore because the first time I did, it loaded my contacts with strange numbers called spams, I wouldn't want to scroll through numbers I didn't save in my contact, so I deleted all those numbers, and simply denied the app the permission and there after use it in an isolating mode. It would have earned 5stars safe the issue mentioned.
  • Works - sort of...

    The fact that the spam database has to be updated daily is a huge setback. I have to manually open the app and click update every day or otherwise spam calls go through. Why? In fact spam calls go through anyways. I was getting a dozen each day even with updated spam list. The funny thing is that after hanging up on a spammer I always check the number against Truecaller database and 90% of a time, the number is on their block list. And yet the call goes through anyways. I am not sure why this happens and have the app all needed permissions. Anyways I just installed an ATT call protect app and it blocked 7 spammers within a couple of hours as I can easily see from the log. Only one went through but the app warned me that this was a telemarketer. I understand that the Truecaller technology is not as the one ATT app uses but but there is night and day difference in results. Thank you for helping me but it looks Like there is a better solution for me as of now.

    Haven't had this app long enough to properly review it, but it's bugging me for a review right off the bat! So this is what they get till I use it. Up Update: Now that I’ve had this for quite some time and learned the best ways to use it. I actually enjoy Truecaller a lot for checking numbers that call me to find out who the number belongs to and I can block the ones I don’t want to call me any more. Truecaller has become my most useful tool to cut out spam callers as well as other unwanted callers I have no desire to talk to!
  • Good... when it works: INCONSISTENT

    By Dmgabriel214
    Used to work consistently, but does not any longer. I update database regularly, have software turned on to screen, yet the spam/scam calls keep getting through. I immediate check the app w/the copy/paste feature, and number is already in the system listed as “scammer.” Why is the software not catching these calls as they come in?! WHY AM I TAKING UP STORAGE SPACE WITH THIS APP IF ITS NOT WORKING?!?! Same happens with all if our household devices. Its not just mine. Ive stopped recommending it to others, and will not again until it works consistently. I may find an alternative & remove the app from our devices.
  • Sketchy privacy policy! Ironic given the nature of the app.

    By jakush
    Truecaller is actually an Indian company or at least they funnel your data through an Indian she'll company if you are a non EU user. I'm guessing this let's them do sketchier things with the data they collect when you install this app like your contact info and the people in your phone book etc. Their privacy policy also says they will use your contact info to send you targeted advertisements etc. Kind of ironic given this app is supposed to help protect your privacy and reduce spam calls. Just goes to show you never know what you're getting until you read the rules. Surprised apple allows this on the app store. Cue: defensive response from developer in 3..2..1..
