How to Obtain a Person’s Details with Phone Number Search
In this modern day and age, it is quite common for everyone to own a phone. It’s the same reason that everything related to a person, starting from email ids and social networking pages to bank accounts, are linked to a person’s phone number. Since phones are something people always have handy, they are also used for password recovery of their accounts, to make online transactions, etc. This shows the importance of a person’s phone number in their everyday life.
While phones and the associated numbers make all the processes so convenient, there are always threats of getting phone calls by scammers or spammers. This is one of the main reasons why it is important to know who the caller is, before picking up a call.
Spam calls are more of a nuisance and tend to waste a lot of time once their call is picked up. As a solution to this problem, many mobile applications were introduced which can track a person’s name and other details. Some of the applications are Truecaller, NumberGuru, Call Clerk, NumBuster, Caller Id Spoofer, Whitepages ID, Hiya-CallerID & Block, etc.
Truecaller is the most popular app for finding out who the caller is. This app identifies the caller if the number is unknown and also warns against spams. There is a provision where the user can mark a number as spam. When a number of users mark a particular number as spam, the number is then identified as a spam number by the app and warns the user if an incoming call comes up from that number.
Inputs from a large community are what drives this app. This app also provides an option to block the spammers. There is also a feature in its professional version which allows the user to find out a person’s number using name search. Most of the mobile applications used to find out the caller operate in the same way as TrueCaller, with a few variations here and there.
There are also many websites which provide the same services, i.e. find the caller details with the number. Some also provide the additional facility of tracking where the call came from. Some of these websites are NumberVille, WhoCallsMe, WhitePages, Truecaller, etc.
While knowing the caller before picking up a call might seem like a great advantage, there are also several disadvantages associated with it:
- Since these mobile applications retrieve the information from a community database, it is not necessary that the information retrieved on searching for the details of a particular number is always a hundred percent correct.
- If a person discontinues and cancels his/her number, then the database still continues to show their name as the owner of that number. This leads to discrepancy in the data.
- The name retrieved on searching a number is the name which majority of the users have saved the person’s number as. This might not give the correct idea of who the person is.
- It is not necessary that all the numbers have associated details.
- It can also act as a database for spammers.
- If the website gets hacked then a lot of information gets leaked out.
It is also possible to remove a person’s name from the mobile application- Truecaller. The person just has to go to the app or the website and unlist it.
Social media is another way to figure out the details of a person using their phone number. Snapchat is one of the most trending social mobile application these days. Once the number is available, using that number, details such as the username of the person, etc. can be found out. This user name can then be used in other social media sites such as Twitter or Instagram.
