Best People Search Better Business Bureau Reliability Seal

Find That Person with People Finders Today! What is the Best People Search? Whether you're looking for an old romantic interest, trying to get information about a new neighbor or customer, or hoping to find your childhood best friend, today's digital world has many tools you can use to track people down.

Of course, not all People Search resources are the same. Some rely on databases that are easily used for free by the average person, while the best services scour the internet - using public records information, social media platforms, and even criminal and legal reports - to determine as much as possible about the person you're seeking.

Spokeo has some of the most accurate People Search results available today, with comprehensive searches of social media, public records, and many other sources. Their "A+" rating with the BBB definitely works in their favor too. But, a complicated, less-than-transparent pricing structure may wind up costing you more in the long run. Spokeo may still be worth trying, if other People Search providers don't meet your needs.

US Search


US Search is part of the PeopleConnect group of services, offering a very basic People Search that includes names, aliases, and likely addresses. This provider's pricing can be difficult to understand, and some customers find themselves with costly add-ons just to get the depth of results that they want.

Intelius is well-known as a People Search service, as evidenced by their "A" rating at the BBB. Unfortunately, a confusing pricing structure and less-than-smooth user experience on their website means that Intelius is not your best choice when searching for people.

Net Detective


Net Detective used to be one of the web's best People Search services. Unfortunately, despite still having a live site, the company doesn't appear to be doing business - at least, not beyond taking prospective customers to risky URLs and failing to respond to customers who paid for lifetime access. We strongly recommend that you take your business elsewhere.

Continued from above

There are a few caveats to using People Search providers. First, any service you choose will probably require you to confirm that you won't use any information you find to screen tenants, hire or fire employees, or to determine a consumer's credit or insurance coverage. These are all requirements based on the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).

Also, the majority of the databases used to return search results are developed by computers that search the internet for records. In other words, there's not much human oversight to make sure that records are current, matched to the right person (especially with common names), or 100% accurate. For that reason, you should take any results you get from a People Search service as a helpful suggestion or possibility, not a guarantee of someone's location or contact information.

While considering the different People Search providers, here are several criteria to keep in mind:

  • Reputation. What do past and current users have to say about the People Search service? Are the results accurate or outdated? Is the company rated and/or accredited by the Better Business Bureau?
  • Information. How much can you find out using this provider? Does it give you details you could have found on your own for free, or will it give you in-depth information that most people wouldn't know how to access? Does the search look for people's social media accounts, or is it limited primarily to public records?
  • Cost. What will you spend to get the information you want? Can you buy a single report for a one-time search, or do you have to pay for a subscription? Does the People Search service offer a free or reduced-price trial? has reviewed and ranked the best People Search services available today. We hope these reviews help you find the person you';re looking for, quickly and affordably!
