Mobile communication app Truecaller on Thursday announced that it was opening up TrueSDK to millions of app developers via a globally accessible self-service portal.
TrueSDK helps end-users quickly utilise their Truecaller credentials with a one touch sign-up to third-party apps with their phone numbers.
The TrueSDK kit can be used by any app to offer one touch sign up, update a user's information, or verify the user's phone number-based identity in their mobile apps through the users' consent.
With the one-click sign-up process, partners have increased their sign-up rates with over 25 percent, the company added. Early partners include Car Dekho, Oyo Rooms, MobiKwik, and Ixigo.
"TrueSDK is a catalyst in our journey to become the mobile identity platform of choice. The ubiquitous phone number is already the native identity for millions of users both online and who are yet to come online, especially in growth markets. For next billion connected users, the email based web identity will not even be a relevant option. At the same time, we are seeing TrueSDK contributing to over one-third of daily signups of apps integrated with TrueSDK and significantly increasing their user growth from across geographies. With this positive momentum, we have now launched the TrueSDK self service. We are democratizing the access to the TrueSDK to all app developers globally and can start accessing and using TrueSDK in their apps from the self service developer portal. TrueSDK is a catalyst in our journey to become the mobile identity platform of choice," said Priyam Bose, director, Worldwide Developer Relations, Truecaller, in a statement.
