In times when you want to acquire someone’s email address, an email lookup tool could go a long way. Mostly, tools that actually work come at a price tag. But don’t worry, here in this post, we’re showing you 5 free-ish professional email finders to help. (Spoiler alert: They all offer trials that cost less than $1!)

Method 1. Search here (Quickest & Easiest)

The easiest and most effective way to search for someone’s email address is to do it right here(by name, phone number, and social media username):

Username Search for Email


Search someone on 55+ networks and uncover their contact info.

All you need to do is pop in the information, click Search Now, and the engine will search the associated email and public records for the owner for you.

2. BeenVerified

3. PeopleLooker

Interested in knowing someone’s email address, but also their other online profiles? PeopleLooker may just help.

As a popular people search portal, PeopleLooker gives you access to a person’s public records at the click of a search button. By searching someone on 120+ social networks, it uncovers not only someone’s email addresses, but also someone’s activity on these platforms.

  1. Go to PeopleLooker Official Website.
  2. Choose a search method, then type in the info and click Search.
  3. Within a minute, PeopleLooker will compile the found information into a report. From the report, you will be able to see the available email address(es), phone number(s), social media profiles, home address(es), and more.
People finders vary from each other in their databases. If your search at PeopleLooker came up empty, try using Spokeo instead. It is another powerful social search engine to help you track down someone’s footprint on 120+ social networks.

4. Social Catfish

Starting out as a dating investigation service, Social Catfish not only locates someone’s public info (email accounts, photos, records, etc.), it also verifies them. With Social Catfish, you’re basically holding a key to a vault of someone’s personal data.

Here’s how to use Social Catfish to trace someone’s email address, by name, phone number, username, location, and photo:

  1. Go to Social Catfish Reverse Phone Lookup.
  2. Select the search type, then provide the information and click Search.
  3. Within seconds, Social Catfish will find all related records the person, including their email address.

5. Google (Completely free)

Another place to try your luck is search engines, such as Google. The web search engine giant does not just pull data from hundreds of social media sites but also indexes billions and billions of queries and information that have been publicly available.

Here are 5 tips to keep in mind to make your Google search more efficient:

  1. Use personally identifiable information (PII) to as your main search query. PII includes name, phone number, social security number, social media username, photo etc.
  2. Enclose your main search keyword with quotations (e.g. “518000000”). In doing so, Google will return to you only results exactly matching your query and in that exact order.
  3. Brainstorm a couple of minor details and add them strategically in your query. For example, if you’re trying to locate a long-lost friend Janet, a simple element “Janet” wouldn’t yield out anything definitive – there will be way too many results and too overwhelming to sift through. But if you narrow it down with “Janet B Jones”, “University of Santa Barbara”, “freelancer/former screenwriter”, you’ll likely hit gold.
  4. Once you do find a lead, put the bits of information together and search further until you’ve located the person’s email address.


Finding someone’s email address is not so hard at all – as long as you have the information in place and the right tools. Among them, BeenVerified, PeopleLooker, Social Catfish, and Spokeo are all excellent services accessible with very small fee trials. Otherwise, you can search Google, but it entails certain amount of searching and guesswork.
