Whenever you want to get in touch with your long lost friends or relatives or want to get some information about a person, the best way to do so is online because you can search for anything online.

If you have decided to search for a person online, you must know that there are various things that you must know about online people search. Before searching for people online, you need to follow a few things to get the information about the person you are looking for. 

Searching people online is easy but can be risky because there are chances that you might not get accurate information and contact the wrong person. 

It doesn’t matter whether you are searching for a friend, relative, or want to do a background check on some people working for you or when you are lending your property. There are some essential details that everybody ought to know about online people search.

1. Choose a free source to search online

The first thing you should know is that you will find both free and paid ways to search for someone online. It’s not recommended to directly go for the paid methods to search for someone because you have plenty of freeways. 

There are many people searching websites like CityZor, which allows you to search for anyone for free. Besides such websites, you can use Google, Bing, and other search engines to search for free. 

So, when you have many options to search anyone online without spending a penny, then there’s no need to go for the paid ways. But yes, if you fail to explore using these freeways, then you can use a paid form if you are so dedicated to finding him.

2. You may reveal your identity while searching for someone online

This is the essential thing that everyone must know before they start to find anyone online. When you use people search websites to search for someone’s information, your identity may get revealed to the person you are searching for. 

In simple words, if you are searching for a person using different websites, that person can know that someone is trying to search for his information, or there are chances that the person can get to know who searched for him. 

 

So, it’s better to use such platforms that give you anonymity, which will help keep all your searches private and confidential; like the CityZor website, it will keep your details private, and no one will know you searched for them. 

It’s always recommended to use these platforms that prevent your identity and keep your searches confidential so that you can search for anyone without revealing your identity.

3. Always use the necessary information to search

When you search people online, you must always use basic information like their name, age, phone number, address, business details, property details, relatives, and more. You can use free sites like Cityzor and Radaris to do unlimited searches on a person by name, phone number, and email. You can also do unlimited reverse address lookup on someone using a people search engine. 

If you’ll use these types of information, then it’s for sure that you will find the most accurate information about the person you are searching for. 

Because when you use unnecessary information, it’ll only increase search results, making your task hectic, mostly when you use search engines like Google to find someone online. So, it’s better to use this essential information while searching for someone online.

4. All online people search platforms use different sites and public records

You ought to know this thing so that every online people search website will give you the details of the person you want to know gathered from different websites. 

You’ll find many websites that gather data from various platforms like social media, including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn, and more. Some also compile information from other typical websites and even public records. 

Those people search websites that gather data from available public records will give the most accurate background details. One such website is CityZor, where they have data from over 20 million public records, which increases the chances of giving better quality details of the person you are searching for. 

5. You can get not only necessary background details but also any criminal records as well

When we talk about searching for people online, everyone has this thing in mind that they’ll be able to gather all the necessary information like their current number, address, and more. But you must also know this thing that some people search websites will give you information with which you can even know whether that person has any criminal records. 

This type of information helps you rent or sell your property to someone unknown or hire someone for your organization. You should know that your search is not limited to only necessary background details, but also you can learn many things about that person like their criminal records, marital status, and more. 

6. You may not always get exact information

Everyone and everything can make mistakes, so you should know that these people’s search platforms can also make some mistakes. 

Sometimes you may get wrong information or irrelevant search results, but it’s quite obvious because they can also make some mistakes while giving you the data of people you are searching for. 

There are only very few platforms that will provide the most accurate information. To ensure that you get the most precise information, you should try searching on different websites and search engines and then believe in the most similar information. 

Conclusion:

Now that you are at the end of this article, you should know that all these things mentioned above are essential to understand when searching for someone online. Each point has some information and details that everybody ought to know about online people search. If you are not aware of these things, you may reveal your identity, get information about the wrong person, or pay for the information that isn’t correct at all. So, you should know these basic and necessary information about online people search before starting your search.

Six People Search Engines You Can Use to Find Anyone

If you need to do a little bit of sleuthing about someone, the Web can be a fantastic resource. Track down an address or a phone number, find a long-lost school friend, or simply verify information with this list of the best six people search engines on the Web. All of these search engines are hyper-focused on finding only people-related information. Note: at the time of this writing, all the information in these resources are free. Read Should I Pay To Find People Online? for more information about whether you should pay to find someone online.

1 Pipl

Pipl is a people search engine that scours the Invisible Web for information; basically, what that means is that you're going to get more than just the usual search engine results for whatever name you might be searching for. Pipl searches across social networking services, search engines, databases, etc. to find tidbits you might not usually find on a rudimentary search using a more generalized search engine. One interesting thing that sets Pipl apart; they offer special services for non-profits at a steep discount in order to create more ways for these organizations to service their clients.

 

2 Wink

Wink searches across what you would find using a regular search engine as well as across social communities, online profiles, etc. You can also use Wink to manage your online presence by creating a Wink profile. You can "claim" and add various places where you might be active online, and manage them all in one convenient place. If you're looking for small tidbits of information across many different sources, Wink is a good choice to continue to put the clues together about whatever you might be looking for.

3 Facebook

As one of the world's largest social networks with hundreds of millions of people on this platform on a daily basis, it makes sense to use Facebook as an incredibly useful tool to find people online. You can use Facebook to search for people you went to high school and college with, as well as work colleagues, friends from elementary school, and non-profit organizations.

Facebook is also great for finding people in specific geographic locations living in your local area that you might not know about, as well as any kind of association, club, or group. While many people keep their Facebook profiles private (meaning that information is only visible to those in their immediate circles of friends and family), many people do not, which gives anyone who wants to find it immediate access to whatever they may be putting online.

4 PeekYou

PeekYou adds an interesting twist to the world of free people search engines; it allows you to search for usernames across a variety of social networking communities. For instance: say you would like to learn more about the person who uses the handle "I-Love-Kittens"; you can use PeekYou to see what else they might be doing on the Web under that username (related: there's an astonishing amount of information you can dig up on someone using only their username. Read How to Track Someone Using Only a Username for more information).

5 LinkedIn

You can use LinkedIn to search through professional networks; you can also add your profile to network with other people with similar interests. By viewing other LinkedIn users' profiles, you can pick up quite a bit of interesting information: where they work, who they work with, their former positions, current or former supervisors, any kind of recommendations they might have received, and much more. Depending on privacy settings, you might not be able to see everything that someone on LinkedIn has provided in their profile; in addition, don't forget that if you are a registered user on LinkedIn, the fact that you looked at someone's profile will be made known to them.

The search for “how to impeach a president” has increased by 5,000%.

Only hours after Donald Trump won the election, many people were already looking for ways to impeach him.

Searches for “how to impeach a president” saw a 4,850% increase after the president-elect’s victory, notes the Independent. Yesterday, the top states searching for this were Hawaii, California, Oregon, Washington, and Colorado—all of which Democratic nominee Hillary Clinton won in the election.

Today, the search term “impeach Trump” is No.8 on Trump-related queries, according to Google Trends. People in Oregon, California, Washington, and Colorado are also searching for this, as are those in Vermont. Clinton won Vermont on Tuesday night with 61% of the vote.

 

Searches for “how to move to Canada” also increased in the U.S. the night of Trump’s win, according to the Independent. So much so, the country’s immigration and citizenship website crashed. The same search also surged 350% after Trump’s victory on Super Tuesday, leading the immigration and citizenship site to display a warning that said users “may experience delays while using the website.”
