PeopleFinders.com has online records for going back 40 years. With this functionality, they create listings from older directories, some census records, and other resources that help fill in the "gaps" before the dawn of the Internet. Also, individuals can remove their own records from PeopleFinders.com's listings with their opt-out policy. This makes it easy for an individual to go remove their information from the database without having to wait for a slow turnaround time from a customer support service.
Other highlights include:
- Background checks
- Criminal records
- The basic people search offers: full name, current address, phone number, prior residencies, relatives, aliases, and age/birthdates
- Search functionality
- Information sharing
We had some concerns with the search functionality and accuracy of PeopleFinders. Users need to pay for their reverse phone number tool.
The Bottom Line
We like the transparency of PeopleFinders.com, but we cannot fully recommend them because even the most basic search requires a small payment. It is better to use a site where information on addresses and some phone numbers can be found for free. We would recommend PeopleFinders for purchasing a background check or finding more detailed information.
