Truecaller in Nigeria: Truecaller Scouts For Local Talents to Join the Company.

Last week, Truecaller kicked off its Africa Launch Event today at CcHUB, where they held an exclusive event inviting media, developers, and entrepreneurs to share their plans for the region.The company revealed it will be setting up headquarters in the region and hire key personals for its operations. During the event, Truecaller also launched its Developer Program (I talked about earlier) with Truecaller SDK, its mobile identity product for digital start-ups and app developers.

Truecaller SDK enables 3rd party app developers, digital businesses and startups to verify end users quickly and frictionlessly by utilizing their Truecaller profile with a one-touch and password free experience. The Truecaller SDK is available on Android, iOS and web platforms and can be used by any app or a website to instantly onboard, autofill user information, or verify the user’s phone number based identity through the users’ consent.

 “We see Nigeria as one of the most promising eco-systems in Africa, that’s why we have decided to kick-off our tour in the market. After engaging with some of the top tech startups and digital businesses in the country, we are even more convinced that Truecaller SDK – mobile identity solution – will help solve many of their challenges when onboarding and verifying new users.” says Priyam Bose, Director & Head of Worldwide Developer Relations at Truecaller.

The company also revealed that it has more than 6.2 million users in Nigeria, where the user base has grown by over 80 percent the past year.

… And is helping Nigerians block more than 13 million calls, and 25 million spam SMS on a monthly basis.

    Why won’t they have over 6.2 million users in Nigeria when we have the highest number of scammers who constantly call and send stupid messages

    I feel vexed and jealous anytime I read about events.. Lagos is the major location for almost every event. Tech events, entrepreneurship, youths development, talent hunt etc. I really need an adventure, hungry to get outside, see, experience and work for a purpose. But location and sch keep holding me back. Am already thinking of life after sch nd since I have this amazing passion for tech nd gadget am considering going into blogging/YouTuber.. Have picked up so much-needed tips from misstechy but still need guidance nd mentors..
