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.

Cost:

$0.95 for a single phone number or full name report

$13.95 for a 1-month membership

$7.95/month for a 3-month membership

Additional fees for Court or Historical Record searches

Spokeo has surprisingly accurate preliminary information when it comes to People Search results. We entered both an email address and a mobile number, and each search correctly matched with the person we were searching for. We were able to see the current location of the phone: an impressive feat, given that it was an out-of-state number. Also, the email gave us the person's Facebook account and her full name, both accurately.

When doing a People Search by name, we had to do a little more digging to get to the right match for our target person - but, once again, Spokeo had the right match. There was one piece of incorrect information that we could find (a related person who wasn't actually connected), but everything else was spot on.

You can take advantage of a 7-day Spokeo membership trial at no cost, though you may have to purchase one of their one-time reports to access that free trial (for example, the $0.95 report for one phone number).

Otherwise, what will you spend to use Spokeo, and what will you get for it? That's where things start to get a little murky. Their FAQ says that you have to go through the purchase process in order to select what features your plan will have. Why not just tell prospective customers upfront?

In digging around, we found that you'll get ample information in the basic monthly subscription, from addresses to social media accounts. But, two things are worth noting, because they're a big departure from similar services: you have to pay an extra fee if you also want searches of court records or historical records (such as birth records, marriage records, or death records), and you do not get unlimited searches in your monthly plan. Again, Spokeo says you have to get to the purchase page in order to see how many searches you get; customer reviews indicate that it's about 100/month on most plans.

In our searches, Spokeoreturned extremely accurate information. They hold an "A+" rating at the Better Business Bureau. But, we don't think most customers will appreciate having to give up their credit card information in order to find out how much they'll spend in the long run. If you're intrigued by what you find in a preliminary People Search using this provider, it might be worth paying for the one-time report to see what else you can find. Just don't forget to cancel before your free trial ends, if you want to avoid any monthly membership fees.

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?

TopConsumerReviews.com 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!
