Today, almost everyone has some kind of presence on the internet; direct or indirect. So it’s really easy to find anyone if you do a proper online search. In your search for people, people search engines can help immensely.

These search engines dig deep into online records to look for people using different parameters. If you are looking for someone special or just want to say thank you to the guy who saved you from that bully in high school, you can take advantage of any of the below-mentioned people search engines.

1. Pipl

Pipl is one of the most comprehensive people search engines that can find people all over the world using different parameters. You can enter a name, email address, username or phone number to start searching for people (more information; the better).

Pipl is a reliable and quite an easy to use platform that allows you to quickly find anyone, anywhere. Additionally, you can use filters like age and location pinpoint the right person. I searched for multiple people on Pipl and found almost all of them in the first 10 results (including myself).

2. Peek You

Peek You uses the similar approach as Pipl when it comes to searching for the database, but it might not be as easy to use. It shows extensive information about a given name or username that might be a little difficult to absorb for novice users.

Peek You offers extensive information including emails, social profiles, public records, web search results and images for the name you entered. You will have to comb through all of this information to find the exact match. It is one of the best tools if you want to see the web presence and images of people.

 

3. ZabaSearch

The US only people search engine, ZabaSearch is a great search engine if you are looking for someone in the USA. It will show their phone number, state, and address to track them.

5. Beenverified

BeenVerified offers comprehensive information on names, emails, phone numbers and even properties, but you will have to get the paid membership if you want all the information. If you need to run background checks frequently, then BeenVerified might be worth a try.

The unique feature about BeenVerified is that it can give you detailed information about people in a specific area. All the basic information about people is free, but it can also create a complete profile of selected people for paid members.

Address Search gives you free information on millions of email and mailing addresses. However, it hides both email and street address partially to respect the privacy of people. Nevertheless, you can send an email through the website to the person you’re trying to find.

7. Google Search

Google Search isn’t actually a people search engine, but it could be the most customizable one. Though Google will show tons of unrelated information, you can take advantage of Google advanced search to pinpoint your search.

Google has data on all the websites and can offer a huge amount of information about anyone or any contact detail. You can customize the search according to your specific requirements. Check out our guide to use Google Search better to understand how you can effectively search for people online.

With information on companies in 51 countries, Infobel shows their exact location, creation date, stock information and other details about the working of the company. If you’re searching for a person, it will show contact information and information about their work background.

 

11. Yasni

Yasni might be a little overwhelming, but it can be extremely helpful if you manage to pinpoint it. When you search for someone, it will show the usual information for that name. Additionally, you can also look for people based on their working background.

12. Facebook Friend Browser

You can take advantage of the Facebook Friend Browser to quickly look for people using different parameters. By default, Facebook shows all the people who you have any connection with, but you can also manually search for people. If they have a Facebook profile, then finding them shouldn’t be too much of a problem.

Being the biggest social network with 1.79 billion active users, there is a good chance the person you are looking for also has an account on Facebook. There is a search form on Facebook where you can enter the name, hometown, current city, school or occupation and other profile related information to find the exact match.

13. Person LookUp

Person LookUp gives you access to multiple people search engines to find people using specific parameters or access specific information about them.

A very easy to use people search engine that offers a good amount of contact information about people. You simply need to provide a name or email address and select the US state where they reside. You can also get a notification when information will be updated for a specific person.

15. MyLife

MyLife is good for finding information about people, but it is more useful in finding online information about yourself so you can manage it according to your needs. Of course, you can also use this tool to get more information about other people. However, you will have to sign up for a free account to see the reports.

If you think your background information may affect your future, then you can use MyLife to track what other people can find out about you online and manage this information manually.

To Summarize

With access to all the aforementioned people search engines, it shouldn’t be too much of a problem to find the person you are looking for. If one search engine fails to find the person, you should give try to others. Each search engine uses different databases to look for people, so you never know which one may be able to help you.

My recommendation would be to give Pipl a try first as it does a great job of quickly finding people. However, if you are interested in learning more about a person, then Yasni or MyLife is a good choice too.

If you need to do a little bit of sleuthing about someone, the Web can be a fantastic resource. Track down an address or a phone number, find a long-lost school friend, or simply verify information with this list of the best six people search engines on the Web. All of these search engines are hyper-focused on finding only people-related information.

These resources are free to use, at least for initial searches. Some sites will charge for detailed searches. Should you pay to find someone online? It really depends on the kind of information you're seeking.

1-Pipl

Pipl

Pipl is a people search engine that scours the Invisible Web for information; basically, what that means is that you're going to get more than just the usual search engine results for whatever name you might be searching for.

Pipl searches across social networking services, search engines, databases, etc. to find tidbits you might not usually find on a rudimentary search using a more generalized search engine.

 

One interesting thing sets Pipl apart: It offers special services for nonprofits at a steep discount in order to create more ways for these organizations to help their clients. 

2-Wink

Wink searches across what you would find using a regular search engine as well as across social communities, online profiles, etc. You can also use Wink to manage your online presence by creating a profile with it.

You can claim and add various places where you might be active online, and manage them all in one convenient place. If you're looking for small tidbits of information across many different sources, Wink is a good choice to continue to put the clues together about whatever you might be looking for. 

3-Facebook

Facebook

As one of the world's largest social networks with hundreds of millions of people accessing it daily, it makes sense to use Facebook as an incredibly useful tool to find people online. You can use the social media platform to search for people you went to high school and college with, as well as work colleagues, friends from elementary school, and non-profit organizations.

Facebook is also great for finding people in specific geographic locations living in your local area that you might not know about, as well as any kind of association, club, or group. 

 

While many people keep their Facebook profiles private and only give information to those visible in their immediate circles of friends and family, others do not. When a profile is public, it allows anyone who finds it immediate access to a person's posts, photos, check-in statuses and other personal details.

4-PeekYou

PeekYou adds an interesting twist to the world of free people search engines; it allows you to search for usernames across a variety of social networking communities.

For instance, if you want to learn more about the person who uses the handle "I-Love-Kittens"; PeekYou will show you anything else that username might be doing on the Web. There is an astonishing amount of information you can dig up on someone using only their username

 

5-LinkedIn

Use LinkedIn to search for professional networks that other people are involved in. When you add your business profile to the network, you can pick up quite a few details about people. 

By signing up for your own profile, you can view other LinkedIn users' profiles. This lets you can see where someone works, who they work with, their former positions, current or former supervisors, any kind of recommendations they might have received, and much more.

Depending on privacy settings, you might not be able to see everything that someone on LinkedIn has provided in their profile. In addition, if you are a registered user on LinkedIn, the fact that you looked at someone's profile typically will be made known to them. 

6-Zabasearch

Zabasearch is a free people search engine that scours freely accessible public information and records. Everything found at Zabasearch is culled from public domain information, such as databases, court records, and phone directories. It's a smart place to start a search because of all the public information it retrieves and shows in one place.

Categorized in Search Engine

Zabasearch is a free search engine to find information on people including names, addresses, phone numbers, birth year, and more.

People search engines have a bad reputation on the Internet because of two things: first, because many are designed to provide information only after users pay money. Second, that the provided information may have been retrieved without consent.

The basic version of Zabasearch is free, and using it to search people will reveal some information directly on the site. The service does not require you to register an account, nor does it ask for payment before it displays the information.

 

Advanced data searches on the other hand, like running a background check, searching by phone number, or confirming phone number and address, are provided by the paid service Intelius or US Search. Zabasearch acts as an affiliate of these companies in this regard, and redirects your requests to the other service where you are asked to make a payment before the information is provided.

Zabasearch

zabasearch

Zabasearch displays several options on its website that allow you to run searches. The basic version is loaded directly on start. You may use it to enter a name, e.g. Bosco Albert  Baracus, and may hit search right away, or limit the output to a particular U.S. state.

Results are displayed automatically on the next screen. Zabasearch highlights the number of hits on the page, and lists each entry with its name, address, and sometimes even the phone number.

zabasearch results

Most links on the page link to the paid services Intelius or US Search, but some don't. Zabasearch displays a "google" link next to each name that you may click on to run a Google Search for the name.

 

This can be useful to search for additional information using Google. Other search engines are not linked, and you need to run searches manually using them if Google does not deliver the right results.

Zabsearch Advanced

zabasearch advanced search

While you may not have any issues searching for less common names such as H.M Murdock, you may run into a large set of data if you run searches for common names such as John Smith.

The advanced search version of Zabasearch offers a solution for that. While you may filter results using the basic search engine as well, by filtering results by state, advanced search steps this up a notch by providing additional fields for you to fill out:

  1. First Name
  2. Middle Name
  3. Last Name
  4. City/Town
  5. State

The more you fill out, the more you filter the results. Searches seem capped at 100 in the free version of the search engine. This is a good way of displaying more results, as you can theoretically fill out more identifying fields, or run searches for each state individually.

Still, results may still be limited and there is nothing you can do about that in this case.

You can open Zabasearch Advanced right away using this link: http://www.zabasearch.com/advanced.php

Where is Zabasearch getting its information from?

One question that may come up, especially if you notice that information about someone you know or yourself is listed by Zabasearch, is where the people search engine is getting its data from.

Zabasearch notes that the information that it displays when users use its search capabilities come from " broad variety of public record sources". The company does not reveal these sources, but hints that it uses public phone book records, property transactions, voter registration records, and information from sweepstakes participation.

 

Basically, any information that is publicly disclosed, be it through the sources listed above, or on Internet sites, e.g. on social networking sites, may be picked up by the company.

Zabasearch acts as a search engine, much like Google does in this regard. It is specialized however, as it focuses on people information, but the basic functionality that powers it is identical to other public search engines.

Can you block your entry?

Zabasearch may suppress some information from users who file a request with the company.

As a courtesy we can 'opt out' your specific information from the ZabaSearch People Search service. What this means is that your name as it appears in a particular record and the associated identifying information such as your address and phone number will be suppressed if you request this in the manner described below. However, please note that any time your identifying information appears in a public record in a manner which is different from the record you opted out, it will again appear in our system. (For example, if your address or area code changes your new information will again appear unless you opt out the new record.) There also are many other public records search services which are not owned by ZabaSearch and your request that we opt out your information will not prevent your information from appearing on these other services.

In order for that to happen, users need to verify their identity by faxing a valid copy of an ID to the company. The company may need up to 6 weeks to process these requests.

You may also investigate the actual source of the information. Zarasearch pulls the information from public sources. This means that the information that the search engine displays has to come from somewhere. If you identify the source, you may be able to change or pull the information so that it is no longer available publicly.

What is Zabasearch Premium?

Zabasearch Premium is a free premium version of the people search engine that is open to users who connect their Facebook account with the search engine.

It provides users with more search results, and should not be confused with the "Premium Services" options that Zabasearch lists on its pages as well.

Connecting with Facebook will only increase the results that you get, but won't enable you to run background checks or use the search by phone number feature for free.

Verdict

Zabasearch is a basic people search engine that focuses on the United States exclusively. It returns basic information for free that include names and addresses, and sometimes phone numbers, and the birth year.

 

The advanced search feature allows you to limit results better, as it gives you more options to fill out information that are processed by the search engine.

It may be a good entry point for starting people searches, but you may want to use public search engines and other sources next to it for additional information.
