PeopleFinders Review

PeopleFinders is currently the second most popular people search/background check provider and one of the rare companies with the highest BBB grade.

Free People Search with PeopleFinders

If you came from this article then you’re probably interested in the free search options PeopleFinders has. As I’ve previously mentioned, they’re great if you want to find people living in the US. Let’s try to do a search on Mike Brown from New York (by the way, I use this name/state just as an example, I have no idea who Mike Brown is):

(you can get the same results by going to PeopleFinders and typing a name and a state in the search box)

You immediately notice the free information provided:

  • The history of states where that person lived in
  • Associated names
  • The current age of the person
  • Relatives and THEIR age

PeopleFinders is the only company I know of that also provides the AGE of the relatives of the person. Most companies provide only the names but not the age, if available.

Now, after you click on “View details” you are presented with several options to buy:

As you can see, these options to get more details are not free but very cheap. If you’re looking for someone then the second option would be best for you. They give you one month access to their database where you can search by name, address, phone, birth date or divorce/marriage/death/property records.

PeopleFinders Background Check Option

The third option is a comprehensive background check report which will be useful if you’re looking for more than a phone number or address. You may find this option to be useful if you want to see previous addresses where that person lived on. You can then go on those addresses and ask people if they know where the person moved and so on.

PeopleFinders is not the only company that offers this kind of report though. I recently made a list of background check services where you can compare various companies by their BBB rating (below on that post you’ll see why I think a BBB rating is important) and overall popularity.
