PTA (Pakistan Telecommunication Authority) has blocked the Truecaller app for the users after a long usage on the Caller ID app.
About a year ago, PTA (Pakistan Telecommunication Authority) had unbanned Truecaller without giving any reasoning behind the ban. Truecaller is being used by millions of Pakistanis to spot spam calls and identify the person calling from an unknown number.
Meanwhile, the News outlets in Pakistan later stated “Privacy concerns” as the reason for the ban of Truecaller application.
After receiving the confirmation from the PTA (Pakistan Telecommunication Authority), many Pakistani users have confirmed on our Facebook inbox that they cannot use the app without having to use any sort of VPN.
Being pulled out like that from a huge pool of users from Pakistan, it was a great sat back for Truecaller. But right after one year, this is a sigh of relief for Truecaller to get the lost users back on their platform.
