Have you ever wanted to know more about the people you work with? Is there someone you don't feel safe around? You can use services like Instant Checkmate to perform background checks on people you don't feel sure about or to reconnect with old friends.

How Does Instant Checkmate Work?

Instant Checkmate is a search aggregation tool that compiles public data about a person into one easy-to-read report. This data includes public arrest records and criminal history, contact information, demographics, and census data. Instant Checkmate is not intended as a credit-check tool or professional background check; it is only intended to be used by someone who is curious about another person.

The data in an Instant Checkmate report comes from county, state and federal government sources as well as social media. Instant Checkmate does a lot of the same work that a private detective would do, for a fraction of the cost. Read an Instant Checkmate review to learn more about how this service can work for you.

Is Instant Checkmate Safe?

All the background checks on Instant Checkmate are private. There is no way for anyone to know who you searched for. You don't even have to create an account. The only information you enter when you search is the name of the person you're searching for, your name and your email address.

Any transactions you make with Instant Checkmate are protected by Norton Security and a 128-bit encrypted connection, so your payment information remains secure. If you're worried about the safety of your own personal information, you can ask to have your information removed from Instant Checkmate on its opt-out page.

Is Instant Checkmate Free?

Searching for a report is free. You can see whether Instant Checkmate has any information available on the person you're looking for at no cost to you. The free information is limited to the city the person lives in and whether or not a background-check report is available.

Once Instant Checkmate gathers all the information and forms a report, it prompts you to enter your credit card or PayPal information to pay for a monthly subscription. One month of unlimited searches costs $22.86, less than what most other services charge for a single background check. You save even more when you buy more than one month of unlimited searching at a time.

If a person's background information is not available on public record, as arrest records are in some states, you may be required to pay an extra $20 fee to get access to this information in the report.
