Find 100% True Free People Search Find 100% True Free People Search

The extent of the effort made by scammers using the word 'free' as click bait (leading to paid search services) is as annoying to people seekers as mosquitos are to caribou. One way to find true free search and avoid chasing down allies that lead to paid search services (in the USA and internationally) is to look for websites claiming 'free people search no credit card required' or 'no charge'.

Best Free People Finders The Best Free People Finders

These two best and largest international people finders are completely free to search. Both provide advanced people search (in the United States and globally) beyond names, addresses, ages and phone numbers.

Google people-search results are fast 'near matches' returning (for example) one billion five hundred sixty million webpages for John Smith meaning that many websites have either of those names on at least one page. Searching "John Smith" in quotes will return only sites with that exact name, acting as a 'filter' eliminating all sites that don't have that, reducing the number of sites to twenty-eight million five hundred thousand. "Captain John Smith' narrows the number of sites further to eighty hundred fifty-four thousand. Adding a middle initial returns only 26 results.

Literally anything and everything that has been placed in a database about someone could be revealed in Google free-people-search results including images, videos, news and shopping.

Facebook's free people finder is a similar totally-free site. It doesn't show the number of matches but shows pictures of people where available. Search returns can be advanced by including known data about the target like schools attended, past or suspected locations, vocations and events. Here's instructions for removing an account

Online People Search Online People Search Secrets

A 'secret' way to search for people is to use the following in the browser's address bar: "Online True People Search" using quotes or not, replacing '' with the domain name of the site and substituting for the search phrase.

This technique may be a way to extract data about people that may not come up using the search function provided on searchable websites, mostly because the search host may not find the page relevant enough to rank highly for the search parameters entered.

Application: A people-search site displays some limited information about a person, confirming that there is information on the site about the person. Applying the 'secret search' might lead to additional details spanning more pages than just the one presented in search results. Currently search results may only display one page per website as to all pages of a website - to avoid one site from dominating the list of matches found.

Another clandestine way to search for people online is to look for information about website owners. Copy the 'domain name' (like to the clipboard and paste it into the search field at which will present a page of information about people who are related to the site (including the hosting company). Over the years people have caught on to hiding this information by using 'private domain registrations' but this method will produce results occasionally.

Another search for people that is little known is a 'reverse image search' submitting a photo of a person to some of the major search services to look for possible matches. (The photograph can be new or old, of people or of things.) This is relatively new search technology (facial and character recognition) so in its infancy has a long way to grow but it's also entertaining to see images of people that search engines think 'look like you'. Visit one of the major search sites and look for an option to search by image then point to a picture or upload one from a device.

It's also possible to search a national database for stolen merchandise. People don't have direct access to the site (LeadsOnline) but every police officer does so to find stolen items and possibly track down the people who stole them, start by contacting local law authorities, file a report and let the law conduct the search.

International People Search Engines International People Search Engines

Regional search engines focusing on local people may have more details about people than international search engines that don't delve deeply into national or foreign databases. (Search engines 'crawl' a website very quickly (seconds). The delve is usually shallow so 'deep web pages' discovered by local search robots may not be found by the mega searchers.)

Area search services are available internationally if local governments or search services haven't blocked Internet access. (Google for example blocks access to China, North Korea and others. China blocks Google.) All information recorded in government websites can be located and indexed by search engines if the latter hasn't been restricted, so people who registered to vote, people who have been arrested or imprisoned, people who work for the government - all may have been found by search facilities.

A way to find search engines targeting geographic areas is to search for them using the region's name and associated terms like 'people search USA'. Here again, when looking for free search results exclusively, scroll down in the list of search results to bypass the paid advertisements and look for titles and descriptions of websites claiming to provide 'free people search' for the country in question.

People Search App People Search App

'App' of course is an abbreviation for 'application' suggesting 'software'. At one time there was an app named 'WebSeekPro' which installed on computers, searched multiple people-search websites and arranged findings on one screen. That app appears to have been discontinued.

Searching for 'people search app' returns the usual attempts by website owners to attract traffic to their websites but it appears there are no apps which are true 'software' that can be purchased, installed on a device and used for unlimited search to locate people.

Search for Bad Guys and Inmates Search for Bad Guys and Inmates

An obvious place to lookup bad people is in the halls of Congress:

There are several places online where records are stored of people who are convicted criminals. When choosing a website in search results, finding websites with .gov (government extensions) will assure free people searching:

People Search Offline People Search Offline

Before computer and the Internet people looking for people and information about them had to slog on over to places offline that stored public records. Not every bit of information about people has been placed in searchable archives and not all archives are open to public search. Many remain today:

Basically people who have gone about living their daily lives have been recorded in multiple databases, often without their knowledge, consent or awareness. At least in developed countries it's nearly impossible not to have people information about everyone committed to annals of time and 'findable' via online search.

Ever wonder why there's so much junk mail in our snail mail? When people enter their personal and contact information online, whether to make a purchase, cast an opinion or join a group - that data is placed in the hands of other people who are often willing to disclose details for profit.
