Search Social Media Accounts by Email Address (2023)

Social media is a great way to connect with people, but finding someone’s profiles may not always be easy, especially when we only have limited information about them.

Luckily, if you have someone’s email address, you’re already one step closer to finding their profiles – as email addresses or phone numbers are often mandatory when signning up for social networks.

In this post, we will guide you through how to uncover someone’s hidden social media profiles easily.

1. Reverse photo lookup

With every new smartphone featuring a better camera than the last, sharing photos online is a normal activity for most people. If you already have a photo of the person you’re looking for, or at least you can recognize the person’s face, you can possibly find the person’s social media profile pages with Google Images.

If you aren’t family with this tool, Google Images is a powerful reverse photo lookup tool to use when it comes to finding people online. There are two ways you can use it:

a) you can search for the person’s information with the tool (e.g., the person’s name, social media username, email address), look for the person’s face in the list of results, and see if you can find the person’s profile picture from any social media platforms.

b) you can search by the person’s photo. Just upload the person’s photo and Google will return webpages containing the same photo. which may be the person’s profile page.

If neither approach lets you find the person’s social media profile, you can use other free tools to perform a reverse image search, such as TinEye, to find out where a specific photo has appeared online.

6. Dig in across social media platforms

There are many social media platforms that allow you to search profiles by email address. We’ll show you how to perform an email search to find someone’s profiles on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter in this tutorial.


Though LinkedIn doesn’t make this easy, it is possible to find someone’s profile by email address. Follow the instructions below to see how to find someone on LinkedIn with an email address:

To proceed, you would need a Microsoft Outlook account and a LinkedIn Account – both registered with the same email.
  1. Go to Outlook and log into your account.
  2. Click the People icon on the left, then click New contact.

  3. Fill in the First Name as you want and the Email address whose profile you’re looking for, then click Create.

  4. Go back to your Contact page and click the contact you just created. Click LinkedIn and log in to your account to connect your Microsoft Outlook account to your Microsoft LinkedIn account.

  5. Back to Outlook and you can see the LinkedIn profile of the email address you were searching for! Click See full profile on LinkedIn button to view it on LinkedIn.

If there’s no profile shown up, it means no LinkedIn account is linked to that email address.


Facebook lets you search users by email address, so that should make your search simpler. Just type the email address into the search box and Facebook will instantly tell you if there is any profile linked with that email address.

  1. Go to Facebook or open the app on your mobile device.
  2. Type the email address of the person you want to find into the Facebook search field and press the Enter key.

You won’t be able to find results if the person you’re looking for doesn’t connect the email address with his/her profile, or if the person chooses not to list the email address as public in their About info.


Twitter doesn’t allow users to directly search for people using email addresses. But here’s a workaround – you can import your email contacts to Twitter, and Twitter will use them as suggestions for who to follow on the site, and voilà – you’ll be able to view the Twitter page associated with that email address if it’s available.

Follow the instructions below to see how to add people through emails on Twitter:

  1. Make sure you add the email you want to track to your contact.
  2. Open the Twitter app.
  3. Go to Menu > More > Settings and Privacy > Privacy and safety > Discoverability and Contacts.
  4. Turn on Sync address book contacts and grant Twitter permission to access your contacts if asked.


Knowing how to find someone on social networks can be a bit like detective work, but it’s a task that’s definitely within your reach – whether you are trying to reconnect with old friends, identify someone you just met online, or just satisfy your curiosity.

By following the methods outlined, hopefully, you’ve uncovered the profiles you’re looking for. Feel free to leave a comment below if you have any questions or suggestions.
