In May 2020, the company had revealed that 720,000 of its 1.2 million Premium subscribers were from India. At the time, the company had 150 million active monthly users, around 35 million lower than the current figure.

In July, the Army directed all personnel to delete apps such as Truecaller, Instagram, ShareChat and Facebook from their phones.
