A recent report by the Indian Cyber Crime Coordination Centre revealed that digital financial frauds accounted for a staggering INR 1.25 lakh crore over the last three years.

The product is available to yearly premium subscribers of Truecaller and all existing customers can avail this protection for free under their existing plan. To ensure a smooth and hassle-free experience for all users, the fraud coverage is seamlessly integrated into the Truecaller app, and is activated once the user opts in for the insurance option.

The insurance plan requires no additional paperwork and one can enable it instantly through the Truecaller app. The new offering will enhance user experience by providing all round protection from the time of receiving a call, during and after communication with the help of AI spam blocking, AI Assistant and call scanner and Fraud Insurance to complete the loop.
