What is Google Camera?

Google Camera (a.k.a Gcam) is a camera application that comes pre installed on google’s pixel smartphones. It was available on Playstore before the pixel phone was released. when it came to Pixel phones, features like HDR+, Portrait Mode and Google software processing made the pixel’s single camera better. Now Gcam is very popular since developers started porting it to other phones. The advantage is that you get a better image quality through google’s software processing.

Gcam Mod for Poco F1 [Review]

The camera interface is pretty much similar like any other Pixel port. We suggest not tweaking the settings much as it could result in  crashes and inconsistencies. unfortunately the slow motion mode also doesn’t work well, and it will crash the app if you select it. We tried the 4K video shoot with this Gcam Mod,  Although the settings shows support  for 4K with stabilisation you get unstabilized 4K videos .

When it comes to the main part “The Portrait Mode” it works with both the front and rear Camera, the blurring algorithm is amazing and we got great amount of detail and sharpness captured on the subject. There is a slight crop just like you would see on the pixel phones but even with that the detail result is very good and it makes full use of poco f1 sensor abilities. we are adding some sample shots from gcam and stock camera app here, these shots will show you the difference

Can Truecaller Spy You? Yes, The app keeping track of what you’ve saved in your Contacts. Which helps it make some more bigger database of peoples names and Phonenumbers. Here we guide you to Deactivate your Truecaller Account Permanently and Unlist  Your Number From it’s Database. Before Heading Onto Truecaller Unlist Tutorial See Issues happened with Truecaller Below

What Is TrueCaller

Truecaller Unlist- Remove your number from Truecaller

Truecaller, Developed by the Swedish company True Software Scandinavia AB, Truecaller finds contact details globally given name or telephone number, and has an integrated caller ID service to achieve call-blocking functionality and social media integration to keep the phonebook up-to-date with pictures and birthdays. The client is available for Android, BlackBerry OS, iOS, Series 40, Symbian s60, Firefox OS, Tizen, BlackBerry 10, and Windows Phone.

Truecaller Unlist

With Truecaller, millions of users voluntarily share their contacts to the Truecaller app and create a global crowdsourced phone directory. This makes it easy to get in touch with anyone, even people with pre-paid phones. So, no matter who you look for, locally or globally, Truecaller will find the contact you are looking for.

Why there is a need of Truecaller Unlist

If you install TrueCaller app on your mobile phone,

the app will pick up contact details from your phonebook and integrate the details in a global database managed by the service.
In the same fashion, the app collects information from millions of users. Subsequently, the database turns out to be extremely large.

Truecaller even records the address of the landline. This doesn’t mean much when telemarketers or spammers call from an office address, however in a perfect world you wouldn’t need outsiders to know your street number since you called them from your landline. Obviously, Truecaller sources this information from open information sources. This is on account of in the event that somebody knows your landline number, they can without much of a stretch locate the enrolled address through any openly accessible phonebook (numerous telcos have this data open) or even by basically hunting down your landline number on Google.

Security and privacy issues Happened


Truecaller servers were allegedly hacked into by the Syrian Electronic Army The group claimed on its Twitter handle to have recovered 459 GBs of database, primarily due to an older version of WordPress installation on the servers. On 18 July 2013, Truecaller issued a statement on its blog stating that their website was indeed hacked, but claiming that the attack did not disclose any passwords or credit card information
