In an effort to raise awareness of cyber safety and encourage safe digital communication throughout the State, the Karnataka government and Truecaller, a caller ID and spam blocking software, signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MoU) on Monday. The partnership seeks to inform the public about digital hygiene best practices and assist individuals in using secure online environments.
With helpful advice that will prevent individuals from falling victim to scammers, the extensive campaign will raise awareness of internet safety. They will also be able to use digital communication tools properly and protect their personal information.

At Truecaller, we’re committed to avoiding fraud instances, and we think that this partnership will help the people of Karnataka remain one step ahead of scam artists.
