If you are using Truecaller you may know that Truecaller app also tells the address 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 a person to know the address of your house, that too just because he called you. Truecaller gets this information from the public data store itself. This happens because someone knows you landline number. Apart from this, they should know the registered address of the phonebook available in the public sector. Or by entering your landline number in Google, your address will be taken.

You will have to close your account to remove the number. If you were trying to remove your number and know the contact details of others, then it is not possible.So the first step is deactivate your account and then delist your number from Truecaller account.
