CheckPeople is a thorough, accurate, and reliable people finder. Generally, it’s a good fit for most people’s search and background check needs. This review will reveal how CheckPeople.com can help you find people online.
How It Works
The service checks public records, the deep web, and some social networks. The initial report can sometimes take a while to load. To see when it will be ready, you can check the status bar. Before you begin, you’ll be asked to enter a captcha code to confirm you’re a human user.
There are several different ways to search for someone’s information, including using their name and phone number. Once the search is complete, the site pulls up potential matches with the person’s age, address, and, sometimes, information about related individuals. You can then check for the right match.
Furthermore, there is a user-friendly menu at the top of the page, which lets you look into their marriage and divorce records, address history, relatives, personal information, and criminal history. If there are no results for your search target in the respective category, it will be empty. You can also pay $2 to download your report in PDF format and save it for your records.
On Legal Compliance
Before getting your results, the site warns you that you might get uncomfortable data and that you can’t use it to make decisions involving tenancy relationships, consumer credit, employment, or any others prohibited by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). There’s always the risk of the subject’s finding out you checked their background because Checkpeople can reveal information not available elsewhere. To get your full report, you will be asked to provide your name, email, and other basic personal info.
Evaluating the Results
We tested Checkpeople’s criminal record search, but there was no information on our subject. This sufficed to fulfill our main goal, even though the report was quite basic. If a free search reveals concerning information, you can proceed to carry out a more in-depth search. Moreover, Checkpeople will also indicate whether paying for in-depth screening is worth it.
The first search took longer than expected; however, individual pages also loaded in practically no time. It’s not possible to say whether the Internet connection was the reason for the initial delay. Few other users report this problem. It took less than a minute to access the first page of search results, which are listed by relevance, age, or alphabetical order. You can choose from these options.
The initial search retrieves basic information such as individuals’ names, locations, and family members. In addition, the more detailed report will generate social media information and further data on relatives based on that. The next stage is a search of criminal records. This will cover a host of rich and valuable databases, such as records available to the Superior Court, district court records, felony arrests, a search of the county sheriff’s department, local police records, information about misdemeanors, and more.
Overall, we were happy with the results of the search. We look forward to using this people finder should we need to do so in the future.
