Most phone number finders are web based (i.e. appear on a website) but some also have their own mobile phone apps.

When would I use a phone number finder?

We’ve all been in the situation where we know someone’s name, but can’t find their phone number. You might be trying to contact a client to ask about the best street parking near their office, or just trying to call a long-lost friend to invite them to the school reunion. 

Fortunately, doing a phone number lookup by name is actually surprisingly easy.

How does a phone number finder work?

A typical phone number finder has a field where you can type a person’s name, and a button you click to start the search. 

When you click the search button to search by name, the tool will search through billions of records across a range of public records databases, then present you with a series of relevant matches for that name.

You then click on the closest match to learn more about that person. Depending on the phone number finder tool you used, that information might include their landline phone numbers, cell phone numbers, address, social media profiles, criminal record and much more.

What’s the best FREE phone number finder in 2022?

The best free phone number finders we’ve found are TruePeopleSearch and FastPeopleSearch. As you can see below, they provide more phone numbers than the other free products we’ve researched.

IMPORTANT: The free phone number finder tools don’t provide as much other information as the paid tools. E.g. They don’t provide information about social media profiles, vehicles, criminal record, etc. If you want to find this information, you’ll need a paid tool. Also, in our tests, the information provided by the free tools wasn’t as accurate.

Here’s a comparison of the information these free phone number finder tools can provide vs the information a good paid phone number finder tool can provide.
