4 Efficient Ways to Find a Phone Number

background check

We can look up residential and business telephone numbers in a telephone book for free. 411, a free telephone directory assistance, is pretty much the same thing. But how about finding someone’s personal phone number? 

Can I find a personal phone number for free?

You can find a phone number for free if you’re so lucky to have them in the Google search results. Otherwise, you will have to use a third-party search tool – a people search engine. 

People search sites help you find someone’s phone number either by name, family address, and email address. Some of them may even provide reverse social media searches. 

They pay an extraordinary amount of money to gather and maintain their database, so these services are not free, but most of them offer trial membership under $1.

How to search for a phone number by name

Find People by Name

Look up phone numbers, social media accounts & more!

Enter a name, and help the search engine to narrow down results by providing gender, an age group, the state/city the person lives in. You should be presented with a detailed report in no more than 3 minutes. In addition to contact information, you can possibly access their background information such as education, job, criminal/traffic records, assets, etc.

How to search for a phone number using an email address

Most people search sites provide email address reverse lookup. This will find all phone numbers and other contact info associated with this email. What’s more, email reverse lookup is one of the best ways to find social media accounts, and it works faster than a name reverse lookup!
