White Pages actually started as a "hobby" for its founder, back in 1997. Alex Algard is the current CEO (and founder). Since its inception in 1997, White Pages has grown to offer a lot of different search features and even has made an app that lets mobile phone users tell who is calling. One of the things we really liked about White Pages was the robustness of their user interface. The sleek web design makes it easy for a user to enter the search criteria that they have and find the person that they are looking for. We also found that White Pages has been featured extensively in the media and has won some awards, including:
White Pages has a solid basic people search function. Their tool was very easy-to-use and robust search tool that provided the following:
White Pages also offers reverse phone search, business search and address search in addition to their basic search. Their pro edition offers more searches.
To get a background check on a person, the search engine directs to www.intstantcheckmate.com. In other words, they use outside agencies to support some of their services.
To opt out of White Pages policy of disseminating information for advertising purposes is to must click on one of the third party services that they use, such as a do-not-call registry, to block your personal information for advertising purposes.

So it seems simple enough to type in a name and get the results. For some reason every time I do that I end up with half a dozen matches that lead me to the upgraded page. Very frustrating when I’m just looking for an address.
Their automated system would not allow me to remove my personal information. After several attempts following specifically their directions, I finally gave up, but found a way to make a complaint to them using their system. They finally removed my information. I didn't like the fact that they had an address I never lived at and that was just one I noticed.
The WhitePages gave me the information I needed to find a person that I have been looking for for a long time. Thanks for being able to reconnect again!
I was using WhitePages.com to try to sort out identity confusion with my wife's medical records. I decided to search my wife's name and found a candidate. Then I checked my wife's profile. There were incorrect places of residence and incorrect family members in her profile. How can WhitePages boast they are providing good data?
I paid for my information to only find that someone else has my exact name with a criminal record spanning since the 90's. For some unknown reason, white pages has yet to remove it from my profile, despite us both having different middle names, ages, and families.
I used it to help a relative check her history for a job. I had the i fo in less than a few seconds.
Tried to use the five day trial for $1 fee. When I attempted to use the system I had to select a plan which as a minimum was $4.99. Tried to contact someone at White Pages unsuccessful! Sent message to cancel and refund both my $1 and $4.99. Have not heard back from them.
All the phone numbers given were worthless. Not 1 of them was a good number for anyone. I called no less 70 phone numbers White Pages came up with and not 1 was a good number for anyone. DON'T WASTE A DIME ON THIS SIGHT.
They are horrible. I keep trying to opt out and they keep sending me these emails saying I am opted out. BUT I AM NOT. I keep sending screen shots showing my still there profile. Then, the woman from White Pages just keeps sending me and email on how to opt out. They are awful.
WhitePages.com is a reliable company. I have found anyone I needed to on that website. I haven't paid for the service, just used the free search.
Don't sign up for this service unless you need it forever. I cancelled it and was still billed for two months with the excuse that I didn't cancel soon enough. It's a rip-off. What's more the info I wanted was not accurate.
I was very disappointed in this site. I did find the person that I was looking for, but the info on them was nearly 5 years old. They didn't live at the address given, or have the phone number provided. I cancelled the same day, after accepting the $1 one day trial. Nothing like it used to be. And definitely not like it used to be when you could find people easily!!!
quickly found what I was looking for Thanks
I can't even figure out how to use this. I can't ask for help because I can't even find my serial #. I made a mistake ordering this. I am way too old. All I wanted to do was recover some deleted direct messages from Twitter. If I could get a refund, I would take it.
I found it very helpful to track down a bad contractor and his address, and family information to use in court.
When I suspected my husband was having an affair, I was needing a source to discover who belonged to the numbers he was calling and texted. I was able to assign names of the women and eliminate the legitimate friends he was communicating with. He refused to go to counseling and he was assuring me he was not cheating. White Pages helped prove he was having one serious affair and multiple sexting/texting with other women. I am now able to file for divorce with confidence that I did everything to salvage the marriage. This was not his first and I would have liked to have had this service 17 years ago when I went through this mess the first time. Thanks!
basic details on people are very reliable and helpful for confirming relatives details. main reason for high score is when compared to other reverse lookup websites their info is usually accurate and way easier to use
Can't get any information about numbers who are calling me through this site. They force me to pay for anything beyond "landline/cellular" and a rough area of where they are calling from which is easy to find out anyway based on the area code. I refuse to create an account to view public information especially because everyone I know who has made an account with them regretted it after the first month due to cancellation issues.
I've used whitepages online when I needed to find my landlords address to mail my rent check. It was super easy to find him. I've used it several times because I just can't seem to remember his address. I guess I could write it down, maybe I will next time. The website was super easy to use and gave me the information I needed.
Total Scam - there is nothing free about this site. You can no longer get a quick, free phone number or address on this site like you used to. You are forced to use "premium" and pay a fee, even for your OWN address, landline, or publicly listed phone number. This company should be sued for false advertising and the owner should be arrested.
This site is a total scam. I paid for a one month membership, cancelled, was charged the following month, cancelled, then charged a third time. Since I'd already been charged, I tried to get a report on myself out of curiosity. In order to get the report, the only option that came up was to pay for the report, even though I had a premium membership. This site will take you down a rabbit hole, then when you finally think you get what you paid for, they'll try to squeeze more money out of you. Do not use this site.
they lure you in with low price once you have paid their are extra charges for items that wer not on the initial they listed only a few of my relatives 905 I never knew
My information is all mixed up with other people who share my name. One of them has apparently gotten arrested frequently. 26 arrests and citations show up under my search. There is no way for me to fix this. I can ask to have my information removed, but to do that I have to create an account with them (ie, give them more information!) Terrible violation of privacy!
I didn't like the way they tricked me into going with their search. I was VERY reluctant, after reading several bad reviews about other companies, but their pitch for a FREE search got me. However, it was NOT free! I hate companies (or anyone) using dishonesty to manipulate; - once they've shown they are willing to operate without integrity, it's OVER for me! Why can't they be HONEST???
