Is Truecaller banned in Pakistan?

As the app was not working on my phone, I decided to check it.

Maybe the app is blocked in Pakistan over privacy concerns. By installing the app, we can see the name of the person who calls you anonymously without his/her consent. One could be also able to extract the name of the caller by visiting the true caller site and adding the number there. This would be the reason that the website is not working in Pakistan.

Well, not authority has announced the ban of True caller app officially so we cannot comment on the actual reasons behind its ban. Furthermore, the company has also not mentioned whether they are blocked or not and have said that they are trying to fix the technical issues they have in our region. So let’s hope for the best.
