Mobile communication app Truecaller on Thursday unveiled a new feature which enables third party apps to easily onboard users with their Truecaller profile and Truecaller verified numbers.
Developers can use the new TrueSDK feature to sign up and update a user’s information or verify a user’s phone number-based identity in their mobile apps with the user’s consent.
“Our aim is to empower third party apps with a credible verification option and enable users to use the app of their choice by making their phone numbers their identity,” said Truecaller co-founder and chief strategy officer Nami Zarringhalam in a statement.
The feature facilitates easy and seamless engagement with third party apps using a user’s verified credentials.
The feature is currently available only to Android-based third party apps registered with Truecaller and will be opened to all in the future.
Truecaller launched the app with 12 partners which are already using the TrueSDK feature.
These are Quikr, Mobikwik, redBus, CarDekho, BharatMatrimony.com, ixigo, OYO Rooms, TO THE NEW Digital, FreshMenu, Terraa, Cash Care and ShopClues.
