Social media went into panic mode earlier this week because Truecaller was blocked for seemingly unexplained reasons.
Truecaller is an interactive mobile caller ID service app designed to find information on mobile numbers with only a phone number. The app also has a feature that lets users block irritating spam and unknown calls to stop telemarketing and blank calls like webspam.
Whoscall has a list of over a billion numbers and the app is available on both Android and iOS.
The offline database helps you to recognize calls even when your phone is not linked to the internet, a feature that Truecaller didn’t.
The app also lets you block spam calls, common numbers, numbers unknown, and more.
Showcaller is easy to set up, simple to use, and low in size (> 4 MB).
It does not use too much of the power of your phone and is slightly less battery-draining compared to Truecaller.
The software shows extensive caller ID information on incoming calls including caller names and pictures.
The app also features an unknown number scan, offline database, built-in call log, and more.

Earlier known as the Whitepages Caller ID, Hiya is a free caller ID app that detects the calls you want to make and blocks the numbers and texts you think are spam or want to avoid for some reason.

As with Truecaller, Hiya detects unknown numbers, lets you check for unknown numbers, and blocks spam calls automatically. In addition, it does not show any ads.
