Do's & Don'ts

RealPeopleFinder provides easy and affordable access to public records for everyone. For example, one can use our people search engine to run a background check, get contact details, conduct a phone number lookup or address lookup, etc.

However, we regulate our search results because the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) mandates restricting us from sharing sensitive information about anyone. This information includes identity theft, stalking or harassment, etc. Therefore, keeping in mind the restrictions placed by the legislation, we have certain terms and conditions that one needs to follow:

Do’s
  • Look for Neighbors

    Are you shifting to a new city, or have you moved into a new locality otherwise unknown to you? Use RealPeopleFinder to know who resides in the neighborhood.

  • Find a Lost Friend

    It happens to all of us that we wonder where that friend would be with whom we spent a significant portion of our childhood. Well, you can find that friend now. All you need to do is carry out a search on our website.

  • Find Estranged Family Member

    Are you planning to surprise a family member with whom you have lost contact for several years? It is no problem if you don't know their address or contact details. You can find an estranged family member within a few seconds on RealPeopleFinder.

  • Scope Out a Potential Date

    How often has it happened to us that we had a great first date, but now we are confused about whether to move things ahead? We like the person but are not sure how they really are. No worries, because running a background search on our website would give you a fair idea of who they really are.

  • Conduct a Phone Number Lookup

    It could be scary if you get repeated calls from an unknown number. But it is also possible that some old friend might be trying to contact you. Conduct a search on RealPeopleFinder to know who is calling you from an unknown number.

Don'ts
  • Employment Screening

    There have been apprehensions that background checks in employment screening can be used for discrimination and thus, impact equal opportunities for all. Therefore, employers can not use RealPeopleFinder to run a background check on their potential recruits.

  • Screening of Educational Qualifications

    Do not use our platform for screening educational qualifications to award a scholarship, admission, other programs, etc.

  • Tenant Screening

    If you are leasing out or renting any property, be it residential or commercial, do not use RealPeopleFinder to screen a tenant.

  • Looking For a Domestic Help

    The laws of the land strictly mandate against searching or screening domestic help. Therefore, do not look for domestic help on our website in any case.

  • Identity Theft

    Identity theft is a serious crime with grave repercussions for those who commit this crime. So, do not try to pretend to someone else who you are not based on the information you find on RealPeopleFinder.

  • Stalking Someone

    If you have a constant eye for someone and continuously follow their activities, this would qualify as stalking and harassing, which is punishable according to the various federal and state laws. In any case, a person's privacy must be respected, and thus, try not to invade their personal space when you search for anyone.
