PeopleFinders Review

Author by

PROS / You can conduct a search easily on the homepage of the website, and you're likely to find the person you're looking for.

CONS / The list of people on the results page is usually long and varied, and information about the person you search for may not be correct.

 VERDICT / PeopleFinders helps you locate a person easily, but the information about that person may not be entirely accurate.

PeopleFinders excels at giving you different ways to narrow the results of your search so you can find the right person you're looking for. While its accuracy was not as good as other people search engines on our top 10 list, it was still on par with the best. You can also use this service for background and criminal records as well as reverse phone look ups. It’s the only service we found that also includes a list of names, so if you aren’t sure of spelling, you can look up the person on the website. This and other features earn it our Top Ten Reviews Bronze Award for best people search engines.

We were able to find all of the people we searched for using PeopleFinders. We got a preview that helped us narrow down the search easily enough, and once we purchased a report, we were able to get several hits for each name. However, the specifics on the reports weren’t always accurate. On one person's report, PeopleFinders gave us 15 previous addresses and one relative. The address and phone history were mostly accurate, but a few were incorrect, and the birth date was wrong.

A nice addition to the basic people search report from PeopleFinders is the inclusion of email addresses, if they're available. This gives you a good starting point even if the other information is inaccurate.

Search Criteria

PeopleFinders allows you to perform different types of searches, such as by Social Security number, email, address or phone number. The basic people search allows you to search by first and last name, city and state only. Once you get to the page of results, though, you can filter those results by age and middle initial.

Sometimes, you may want to search for someone whose name you have heard but not seen in writing. This is the only people finder we examined that contains an alphabetical list of people in the U.S. This can help you find the person you are looking for even if you aren’t sure of the spelling of their name. It’s also a good way to find relatives or others who share a last name, such as if you are doing genealogy research.
