After Google decided to revoke the phonebook search operator eight years ago due to a large number of takedown requests, finding someone online hasn’t been as easy. Although you can still do it the old-fashioned way and search through phone books and such, in the incredibly digitalized world we live in, wasting time on such a task is simply not an option. As such, we present you with the best ways of finding someone online.

1. CheckThem

CheckThem is quickly becoming one of the most popular tools for finding someone online. This incredibly powerful people search website is fast, efficient and secure. All you have to do is enter the first and last name of the person you’re trying to find, as well as the state if you want to limit the search down. It’s by far and away the easiest option if you want to reconnect with family and friends, search personal information or find and get in touch with a long-lost colleague.

2. Pipl

Pipl comes in a close second to CheckThem. The platform uses a user-friendly interface so anyone can operate it, and it presents you with the results in a manner that is easy to read and understand. The site works as intended and is actually free of charge, though you do have to pay to see some sponsored results.

3. Whitepages

If you want to get more information than just regular social or professional data, you use Whitepages as it brings you detailed reports which include address, properties, criminal records, judgments, etc. If something exists about someone in the public records, Whitepages will find it. The trouble is that it doesn’t have as big of a database as the other two.

4. PeekYou

PeekYou uses patented technology in its people search engine to bring you details about someone based on their email address, social media and other public records available. PeekYou works best when you’re trying to find someone based in the U.S., but as of recent you can also conduct a global search though it’s not as effective.

5. Lookup Inmate

Lookup Inmate is an online platform that provides information about inmates within various correctional facilities. It may allow users to search for inmates by name or inmate number, offering details such as location, booking information, charges, and possibly even visiting hours. The site’s objective is to facilitate the process of finding and keeping in touch with incarcerated friends or family members. The accuracy and availability of information may vary based on data sources and the specific institutions’ policies on sharing inmate information. Such a website generally serves as a resource for individuals who need to maintain contact with inmates or for those seeking to verify incarceration status.


You can still use Google to find someone online, but you can do so with so many excellent alternatives that have surpassed the popular search engine.
