We asked him whether he was concerned about a feature called Enhanced Search, which allows the app to securely send his phone book contacts to TrueCaller’s servers, and he said, “I know about this issue, but to tackle it I never save the original name in my contact database and whatever fudged name I have saved I know who they are.”
