This year we decided to make the campaign bigger and bring
it to the masses. We found the team at Thinkstr to be a great fit when
we first spoke to them last year and we decided to work together on
this. Satbir, Ravi and the team have come up with a very bold and hard
hitting campaign that gives our efforts, a huge uplift. We are confident
that our work will resonate with the public and we look forward to
working with them for many more such projects.'

Satbir Singh, Founder & CCO, Thinkstr added, “8 out of 10 women have
faced sexual harassment from callers and texters. Truecaller’s Against
Harassment project has been helping women avoid calls from stalkers and
harassers as well as encouraging the reporting of such behaviour to
concerned authorities. It is a powerful evolution of their core of
identifying unknown callers and spam detection. We are excited that
Truecaller has chosen Thinkstr to take this campaign against such a
deep-rooted social malaise to the next stage. Looking forward to working
with Kari and Manan in creating this into a movement.”
