This success has been achieved within a few months of conscientious efforts by the team in helping brands connect with their customers better.
The businesses are from more than 25 countries, including Nigeria, Kenya and South Africa, who have adopted the solution to add value to their existing businesses.
The offering allows businesses to verify their identities on Truecaller which increases consumer safety by preventing fraud and scam calls.
This includes various types of businesses, across large public listed companies, digital natives, startups, e-commerce, education, healthcare, banking and financial services (BFSI) and more verticals.
With frauds and scams using spoofed identities on the rise across the world, there was a dire need to bring in more trust in communications.
