Truecaller Introduces New Features - Back Up Contacts, Call History and Restore

Truecaller, the popular caller ID app, has launched Truecaller Backup for Android, a new feature which allows users to backup and restore their contacts, call history, block list, and settings.


The feature comes in handy when you’re switching to a new phone, getting a new SIM card, or resetting your device. Truecaller Backup simplifies transition to a new phone without losing contacts, call logs, etc.
How Does it works?
Truecaller will create a private folder on your Google Drive to store the backed up files.
Note, Truecaller does not inspect nor have access to this folder.
How to enable backup?
1. Enable feature through the wizard or within the app settings
2. Select Google account to store the backup
3. Grant Truecaller access to Google Drive


How to restore backup?
Make sure the same Google account that was used to perform the backup has been added to your phone
Uninstall and reinstall Truecaller on your device and you'll be prompted to restore
Wait for the restore to finish and restart Truecaller
