OkCupid Search: How to Search & Find Someone on OkCupid

OkCupid Search: How to Search & Find Someone on OkCupid

OkCupid Profile Finder

Enter someone’s name to find out if they’re on OkCupid

OkCupid is a popular dating app with an algorithm that allows you to find your match based on your personality and preferences.

It used to have a search function where you could enter a person’s name or user name to track down that specific someone’s profile. Unfortunately, OkCupid has now retired the search function due to privacy concerns.

If you’re still trying to search for someone on OkCupid, don’t worry. You’re not out of luck. There are actually alternative ways to help you find a person on OkCupid, and it’s quite easy…

1. TruthFinder

Whenever you want to find someone on OkCupid, you may want to make TruthFinder your first stop. With access to millions of public records sources, TruthFinder allows you to enter just a name to search for someone on many different social networks, which may include OkCupid, Tinder, Snapchat, Instagram, POF, and so on.

  1. Go to TruthFinder’s official website, enter the person’s name, and then click SEARCH.
  2. Sit tight while TruthFinder combs through millions of public records. Once it locates a match, it’ll generate a detailed report. In order to view the report, you will need to purchase a membership plan that is right for you. From there, you can get a peek into the owner’s presence on 50+ social platforms (OkCupid included) and learn what they’ve been up to.
    The above image is from a sample report. Actual TruthFinder reports may contain more or less information.

2. Intelius

Intelius is another public records search engine that allows you to check if someone has an OkCupid account. It refreshes its sources, which makes it a trustworthy site for providing fast and comprehensive reports.

Here is how to search if someone is on OkCupid with Intelius:

  1. Go to the Intelius Official Website.
  2. Choose the search type: name, phone, and address (For email search, you’ll need to create an account), then enter the information and click Search.
  3. Wait a few minutes as Intelius scours through its public record sources. Once it locates a match, it will compile the associated records and build them into a report for you. In order to review the report, you will need to purchase a membership plan. 

    The above image is a sample Intelius report. An actual Intelius report may contain more or less information.

2. Social Catfish (Supports searching by image)

Starting out as a dating investigation service, Social Catfish combines finding people and verifying their identities. It is a compact 6-in-1 social media finder that allows you to find someone on OkCupid, by name, phone number, email address, image, username, and physical location.

With 200+ billion records in its database, the engine is not just limited to the US, but 100+ more countries and regions across the globe. This means that if you have someone outside of the US that you want to search, don’t look further than Social Catfish.

  1. Go to Social Catfish Official Website.
  2. Choose a search type, enter the information and click Search.
  3. Within minutes, you’ll receive a detailed report about the person you searched. This usually includes their activity on 120+ social sites if available.
Can’t find what you need or want help for your search? Consider contacting a Search Specialist at Social Catfish. They’re a crew of private investigators that leave no stones unturned to help you get the results you need and give you some much-needed peace of mind.

3. Uncover hidden social profiles with Spokeo

Social search engines are inherently different in their databases and plans. So if BeenVerified doesn’t give you luck, you could try Spokeo.

Spokeo is a powerful people search engine best known for unlocking social media and dating website profiles (It’s 120 networks and counting).

Here’s how to use Spokeo to look up someone’s dating profiles.

  1. Go to Spokeo official website.
  2. Enter the name/email address/phone number/address of the person whose OkCupid profile you’d like to search (if available), then hit SEARCH NOW.
  3. Spokeo will start searching its 12 billion+ licensed records and deliver you all matching results under that name. You can then click on the corresponding links to check out their profiles.

4. Adjust your preferences on OKCupid

With the OkCupid search function being out of the picture, finding someone’s profile through the OkCupid app itself has been reduced to adjusting your preferences. The more you know about that person, their name, age, location, height, weight, education levels (literally any details you can summon up), the more accurate the system will match your preferences to help you pinpoint the person.

Social Media Search


Search username on 55+ social networks

To do so, simply fire up OkCupid, then tap on Preferences and fill in the fields based on how you know the person. Once finished, you can navigate to Discover and scroll through the profiles until you track down the person. This may be a hectic process, so you’ll need to be patient (Again, you can use Spokeo to save you the legwork).


It’s true that OKCupid has dispensed with the search feature within the app, but you can use other ways to search a person: through people finder tools such as Social Catfish and Spokeo and adjusting your preferences. The first approach helps you unlock someone’s all social network profiles with name, phone number, email address, or home address, while the second requires you to fill in as much information as possible to match the person in question.
