Enter a Number to Find the Owner’s Address & More.
Looking to find someone’s address, but all you have is their phone number? Fortunately, it’s feasible through reverse phone number lookup tools.
We’ve rigorously tested almost all the major reverse phone lookup tools on the market, and this article highlights the most effective options, both paid and free, including TrueCaller, True People Search, BeenVerified, Intelius, and Spokeo.
If you’re after basic information, consider using free tools such as True People Search or Fast People Search. If you’d like to cross-check the address, paid tools like BeenVerified, Intelius, and Spokeo are recommended. Read on and find out more…
Try these methods:
TrueCaller is a free reverse phone lookup tool, used by over 368 million global users. This vast community actively suggests identities for incoming numbers and associated addresses. However, unlike dedicated people search engines listed below, it only reveals the city of residence of a phone number owner, not their complete address.
- To use this tool, go to TrueCaller or download the application.
- Next, sign in using your Facebook or Google account.
- Then, enter the phone number to search.
For instance, below is a sample search result I got from my test. It displays the owner’s name, city of residence, and a potential email address. If you wish to get more detailed results, try a dedicated people search tool instead.
2. True People Search
True People Search is another free reverse phone lookup to try, with a user-friendly interface. The tool is easy to use and doesn’t require account registration. However, note that this platform is funded by ad sponsorships, so you might run into many site advertisements during your search.
We use this tool for a test run and here is what we got in mere seconds. True People Search unveils the owner’s name, detailed address, address history, phone numbers, email addresses, property details, relatives, associates, and neighbors. In my opinion, for a free people search tool, the depth of information provided by this tool is indeed impressive.
BeenVerfied is a decent and easy-to-use people search tool designed specifically to provide background details and contact information about individuals. The one-month membership costs $29.99 and allows you to run 100 reports. Here is how we use this service and what information we got:
Step 1: Go to the BeenVerified website.
Step 2: Enter the number and click Search Now.
Step 3: BeenVerified will scour millions of public records and pull information associated with the phone number into a single report.
For example, below is a sample report from my search. Under the Address History, you can view the person’s current and past addresses.
Intelius provides a reverse phone number lookup tool that allows you to search for someone’s information by simply entering their phone number. This tool scours available public record sources to compile a comprehensive report that could include someone’s current and past addresses, possible relatives, associated social media profiles, and more, if available.
To search for the owner of a particular phone number, just enter the phone number into the search box, and click Search Now.
Intelius will then work its magic and generate a detailed report that you can review after you have purchased a membership plan. Intelius’ Reverse Phone Lookup membership plan costs $34.95 per month and includes unlimited monthly phone, person, and address searches.
You can check the person’s possible address in the Location section of the report. Note that the image below is a sample Intelius report, and the actual report may contain more or less information. The extent of information retrieved may vary based on your specific search query – and there is no guarantee that you will be able to access the same depth of information across all searches.
Spokeo is also a powerful people search tool to find address information. It gathers all available information from public sources and stores them in one database, providing an easy way to confidentially look up people’s information. The one-month membership costs $19.95, and the three-month membership costs only $14.95 per month.
Here is how to use this service:
Step 1: Go to Spokeo, enter the phone number you want to look for in the search field, and click SEARCH NOW.
Step 2: If Spokeo finds any information associated with the phone number, it will compile them all in one report. After searching the number with Spokeo, we were able to view a well-organized and informative report. Not only did Spokeo retrieve all the basic information found by other tools, it also proved superior by successfully locating vital records such as marriage, divorce, and birth records associated with the person.
6. Search social networks
If your search results from Google or any other search engines let you down, don’t worry. You might as well find the address you need from social media. Social networks like Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Yelp, etc. can be useful resources to connect with people. Just cross-search the phone number on different social media sites to see if you can find the person’s profile page.
While people are not likely to list their address directly on the page, you can start a nice conversation with them and explain why you’re looking for their address.
7. Call the phone number and ask
If you need the address of a business client or a friend so you can send them a mail package, don’t hesitate to call the number directly and ask for their address. While this may ruin part of the surprise, it’s the easiest and safest way to find someone’s address.
If contacting the person directly isn’t an ideal option, look for your shared friends who may know the person’s whereabouts and ask them if they can provide you with this information; or you might as well try reaching out to people who may be related to the person on social media like Facebook.
So that’s the end of the post. Whether you choose to use a people search tool, common search engine, social media, or simply pick up your phone and call, please note that home addresses are considered private and remain respectful when seeking this information.
