3 Best Free Ways to Find an Address

There are various scenarios why you want to find an address. It could be a long-lost cousin who you are trying to locate. Or you’re paying a surprise visit to a friend but somehow can’t find the address.

Luckily for you, there are actually both free and paid options for you to look up someone’s address, and even the paid methods are offered at a very low-cost price. Read on and find out…

Can I find someone’s address for free?

Yes, you can. Free methods, as you would expect, revolve around asking, Googling, or combing through social media.


This is the most straightforward method. You can ask the person for his or her address directly. Or if for some reasons you’re embarrassed or inconvenient, you can ask a mutual friend.


Google should always be our #1 source of free information. Whenever you want to search for a person’s address, you can pop their name, phone number, email address into the search engine and see if Google gives you any hints. If you find a lead, you can add the information to your query and see if you can get closer to the goal. Be prepared to wade through hundreds of results though since it’s Google, the giant of search engine and you may need to verify the information before you determine the address you’re after.

Social media

It is possible that the person whose address you want to find out has posted their locations or disclosed their address somewhere on their favorite haunts. So you can think about the social media the person will be active on, then hop onto these platforms and scroll through their posts/bios to see if you can track down the address.

As you can see, these manual methods are mostly time-consuming, and do not guarantee success. If you do manage to track down their locations, congrats!

On the other hand, in most cases, you may not be able to get hold of the person (hence going online to find a way), or perhaps you have run the nine hundred and ninety-ninth time search on Google but none of them yield out anything useful, or it turns out people are not that open to sharing their address on their “favorite” social networks after all.

What about online people search services?

Are there any free online people search tools?

We hate to break it to you but there is no such thing as a completely free online people search tool. People search websites are businesses themselves, and as all entities that offer products or services, they have to turn a profit to keep the business going.

They need to pay money to access the governmental and non-governmental sources of data, hire professionals that work around the clock to compile the data and keep the data up-to-date. Websites that hand over to you reports without asking for a nickle may be crawled with intrusive ads, the data may be missing, false, or outdated (due to lack of incentives), or there could be other gimmicks involved to lure you in for their own gains. Simply put, you get what you pay for.

Fortunately, after a lot of researching, some legitimate people search services such as BeenVerified, Spokeo, and PeopleFinders do offer you a trial of their membership to find out what you need (in this case, a person’s address) at a very affordable cost. Among them, our favorite is BeenVerified.


BeenVerified is a powerful, versatile and well-trusted people search service. It allows you to easily dig out in-depth information about a person by searching their name, phone number, email address, username, website name, company name, and much more.
