Truecaller has launched a new app called Guardians. Just as its name is, the app which is tagged as a personal safety app lets you choose trusted people as your guardians.
How Guardians App Works
When you choose trusted people as your Guardians, the app allows them to see where you are, makes you can have peace of mind, and protection in case anything goes wrong, according to the company. With the newly launched app, you can easily notify your guardians if you are feeling unsafe in a location, share your GPS location, and even choose the people you trust to see your current location.
Truecaller users can easily sign in with one tap. If you’re not a Truecaller user, your phone number will be verified using a missed call or OTP.
The app needs only three permissions: your location, contacts (so that you can select and invite your personal Guardians) and phone permission (to show your phone status to your Guardian).
Features of Guardians
