How to Deactivate and Unlist Your Phone Number from Truecaller

We all use the keyboard shortcut Control-F (Windows) or Command-F (Mac OS) to quickly find particular words or phrases in a webpage or document. But have you ever wondered if the iPhone and iPad support the Control-F search shortcut? Yes, it is the answer. On your iPhone, there are several methods to use Control-F (or Ctrl+F) to search. In order to understand how this productivity-focused hack functions, let me first explain how it does not.

Remove (Unlist) Your Phone Number From Truecaller Database

First of all, the iPhone lacks the Ctrl+F/Cmd+F keyboard shortcut. How then do you search a document or website for specific words or phrases? It is fairly easy. To search for text, you must utilise the built-in search capabilities.

Others use a Control-F-like functionality that makes it easier to find certain text while some apps have a separate search bar to allow you to quickly identify specific phrases. Additionally, Spotlight Search allows you to quickly search the entire system on your iPhone or iPad. Finding specific terms on your iPhone (or using Control-F) shouldn’t be difficult as long as you know how to use these choices.

Step 1: Deactivate Truecaller Account

1. Go to the website where you wish to search for a word or phrase in Safari on your iPhone.

  • Firstly, open Truecaller on your phone and hit the hamburger menu (three small lines) on the top-left. On the slide-out panel, tap on Settings.
  • On the settings menu, select Privacy Center, and then choose Deactivate on the next page. Confirm when asked.

2. Enter the term you’re looking for in the search box now. Then, press the Discover [search keyword you entered] option under the On This Page heading after scrolling down to find it.

Step 2: Unlist Phone Number From Truecaller Database

  • Now go to the official Truecaller Unlist page to request the de-listing. Enter your mobile number with the correct country code, solve the Captcha and click on the Unlist Phone Number button.
  • Confirm by clicking on Unlist in the slide-out pane. You ll get a message saying that your number will be unlisted from the company s searchable database within 24 hours.

3. You should see how frequently the word appears on the page at the bottom of the screen. Now you may search for each occurrence of the term using the up and down arrows at the bottom of the screen. Tap the Done button at the bottom of your iPhone’s screen after you are finished with your Control-F search.
