Because before that your number may be being used by someone else and they have stored their database on Truecaller.

Not everyone knows this, but the Truecaller app also gives the addresses of some fixed line phones. If there is a telemarketer and spam call from an office address, then there is no problem. But you would never want someone to know your home address, that too just because you called. True, Truecaller obtains this information only from public data stores. This happens because someone knows you landline number. Apart from this, they should know the registered address of the phone book available in the public domain. Or by entering your landline number in Google, your address should be known.

In such a situation, you would like your number to be removed from Truecaller’s database. Keep in mind that if you use this app, you cannot remove your number from this service. You will need to close your account to delete the number. If you wanted to know the contact details of others by deleting your number, then it is not possible.
