Pros / The helpful timeline view organizes the information.
Cons / TruthFinder is a subscription-only service.
Verdict / We found accurate results with this service, but its pricing model isn’t as flexible as others.
TruthFinder is one of the more accurate people search services we looked at, faring better in our tests than BeenVerified and US Search. It’s about average in terms of the price, as it doesn’t offer a single report purchase option.
To test accuracy, we looked at three different reports for three different people, with names that ranged from uncommon to common. We scrutinized each report to see if it included up-to-date and accurate information about our subject’s addresses, email, phone number, criminal history and other biographical details.
TruthFinder had a greater variance in result quality than the other services we used. For one of our targets we found every email and phone number, including the most recent, as well as addresses, social media accounts. For other subjects the information was less complete, especially with phone numbers and emails addresses. TruthFinder struggled to provide work history and marriage information, which was difficult with most of the people search programs we reviewed.
We liked that TruthFinder arranges the information on a timeline, so it’s easy to track your subject’s movement to see where they’ve lived and where they live now. In general, TruthFinder has some of the most visually appealing and easy-to-navigate reports.
One of the downsides of this service is that it doesn’t offer an option to purchase a single report. To use TruthFinder you pay for a monthly subscription, which is around $27.00 a month. We like services that give you the flexibility to buy a single report, since with a subscription you can forget to cancel and may end up paying for longer than you intend to. If you want to download any reports, there’s a $2.00 charge for each PDF emailed to you.
We liked TruthFinder’s search interface. It was very easy to find our subjects, even those with common names. It’s also easy to refine your search by adding middle names, cities and states. TruthFinder lets you sort your results so they display by age, name or location. All these tools combine to make it relatively easy to find who you’re looking for.
