Can you hide from TrueCaller App Database?

The answer to this question is both yes and no. If any of your close friends install this app it’s mean he gives access to his phone book to a true caller and your name and number is present in your friend’s phone book so in this case, you cannot hide on true caller database. On the social circle, you can restrict your friend’s info for the public by privacy but still your name and image etc. will be added to the true caller for others.
