How much does it cost?
The app is absolutely free, and will remain so forever. You won't find any ads in it either!
Why is it free? It seems a bit suspicious
We assure you that we don't sell any telephone number databases - on the contrary, our goal is to fight this very problem. We don't give your personal information away to any third parties; we don't use your phone numbers to perform Kabbalah rituals and take over the world; and we don't work for the secret services or the ruler of the Galactic Empire. We see less data that Facebook, Viber or WhatsApp do (note that they're also free). And no, we're not that altruistic and we do make money - but we do this without ruining your personal privacy.
What's important in our service is the ratings and comments that people leave in our app. Together, we find among our users not only spammers and conmen, but also people and businesses who take your opinion seriously. And that costs every business some money. So no, we're not completely selfless; and no, we won't make our app paid.
Why do I need an Internet connection in order for the app to work correctly?
Normally, telephone numbers databases use your phone memory to store their tens of gigabytes of data. We don't do that - all the information, including comments, ratings and profiles, is stored remotely and is shown to you only when necessary.
Where did you get your telephone numbers database?
We actually don't have a database per se, we're not interested in your phone number. We only track the connection between phone numbers to then show to the rest of the users contect created based on the collective experience of other users - that is, their comments and ratings. We also show the user's name as it was entered during the registration process; the user's name as it's shown in your contact list; and in the way it's most frequently written in other people's contact lists. That it!
I entered my phone number, but didn't get a confirmation code. I can't get registered in the app.
Unfortunately, the message delivery speed depends on your mobile operator service. We can't do anything to help you with that, but soon we'll enable confirmation by voice calls - we hope it improves the situation.
How can I delete contacts from your database?
Unfortunately, there's no way to do that. Our mission is to rid the world of spammers, phone database sellers and conmen, and to accomplish it, we need to understand the real connections between users. Are you afraid that we'll use your phone number or those of your friends for our own benefit? That someone else might see them? That will never happen. Nowadays, if you use any social networks, messengers, play games or just enter your phone number on the Internet, you've already given spammers pleny of opportunities to put it in their database. NumBuster's play is fair and square.
Is the app difficult to use?
No, it's a piece of cake! Just download the app in the app store, enter your phone number for authorisation, fill in your profile - and volia! Leave a nice comment to your friend, show some love to the bank that calls you on Sunday mornings - share your experience with the world! And, of course, use the opinions shared by other people to your own advantage and learn who's calling before you answer the call.
The app doesn't work right, who can help me?
You can always contact our tech support at firstname.lastname@example.org. Want to have some fun? Write your letter in some exotic language like Arabic, Chinese or Finnish - see if we can answer you!
Is it possible that my personal information gets into the hands of the wrong people?
Nope, absolutey not. Information tied to your profile (suggested name, comments and ratings) is seen only by the people you call yourself. Even if evil forces managed to enter our system, they wouldn't find there anything of interest. Even the phone numbers themselves are slowly but steadily being replaced by other identifiers, much more useful to NumBuster! and completely useless to anyone else.
