It is not necessary to have an internet connection on the phone at all times for this app to work. Once a number is identified the app will identify it, whether or not you are connected to the internet.
Protect yourself from spammers

Truecaller automatically safeguards you from the known spammers in a region once you download the app in your device. You can also choose to reject calls from people who hide their identity while calling through this app.
Use Truedialer as default dialer

Truecaller lets you do much more than just blocking calls from people you want to avoid. It offers a dialer and users can choose to use Truedialer as the default dialer. Its Discovery feature works much like Twitter and Facebook’s methods to find people you already know.

It works on your location and existing contact list. If you find a contact with details set to private, Truecaller can show flowchart so that you can find a common friend.

Identify numbers with Search bar

Truecaller makes it easy to identify any phone number literally! There is a search bar that you can see after launching the app. Simply, type in a phone number in that field. You may also type in, address and names.
