ConsumerAffairs operates independent of TruthFinder and does not offer background check services. Per the TruthFinder terms, you may not use this service or the information it provides to make decisions about consumer credit, employment, insurance, tenant screening, or any other purpose that would require Federal Credit Reporting Act compliance. TruthFinder does not provide consumer reports and is not a consumer reporting agency.

What is TruthFinder?

TruthFinder is a search tool and background check service that lets you find nearly anyone in the U.S. by name, address, phone number or email address.

You can use the service to reconnect with family and friends or to view a person’s criminal history. You can also run a report on yourself if you want to see what information is available about you online. You cannot use the platform to screen employees, domestic workers, tenants or people who provide professional services, including tutors or doctors.

TruthFinder searches millions of public records and social network data across the United States and compiles all the information into one report. The report includes items like:

  • Birth and death records
  • Possible relatives
  • Possible associates, friends, roommates or former romantic partners
  • Detailed location information (current and former addresses)
  • Contact information
  • Education and jobs
  • Social media profiles and dating profiles
  • Assets, including owned properties and driven vehicles
  • Criminal history, arrest reports and traffic records

Pulling a report on TruthFinder is anonymous, so no one will be notified when you perform a search or request a report for a particular person. The company has a free mobile app available in the Apple App Store or Google Play so you can make searches on the go.

TruthFinder cost

Requesting and receiving reports on TruthFinder requires a membership.

A one-month plan with TruthFinder costs around $28 per month. This fee lets users request unlimited standard background checks. Members can save money by purchasing a two-month plan for around $46. TruthFinder does not allow customers to pay for a single report, and you must contact the company’s member care department to cancel your membership.

TruthFinder FAQ

Is TruthFinder free?

Currently, there isn’t a free version or free trial of TruthFinder; however, Truthfinder offers a free search that provides preliminary information including age, location history and potential relatives. Most reputable background check services are not free.

How far does TruthFinder go back?

Results vary by person, but some reports go as far back as 15 years.

Can you do a background check with a phone number?

Yes. Through the company’s reverse phone lookup feature, you can search a phone number and receive relevant background information, including name, social media profiles, possible email addresses and locations.

Is TruthFinder accurate?

Yes. The more information you can provide, though, the more accurate your results are likely to be.

How do I cancel my TruthFinder account?

To terminate service, users must call the TruthFinder member care department.

Is TruthFinder legitimate?

TruthFinder is a great tool for connecting long-lost family members or friends, but the company charges a monthly fee and requires you to call the member care department to cancel. As long as the product isn’t used for malicious purposes, it’s a helpful resource that lets you find family, friends or former colleagues. We recommend TruthFinder for its extensive reports, accuracy and affordable pricing.

My children are now in their 50s looking for family health conditions that run in their father's family. We had not seen him or heard from him in 50 years, had no idea how to get in touch with him. With TruthFinder I was able to track him down. His name had a very unique spelling which helped spelling which helped. We were able to make contact and he responded and with the information they were looking for and they were able to talk to him. The time was excellent. He had heart issues, and passed away about 2 months after I found him. Thanks to Truthfinder. I was a little leary in the start, but was very happy with the results. I had tried another service without much luck.

    When seeking a friend who simply 'disappeared' between Christmas and New Year Day, I researched and found lots of info that led me to EVENTUALLY learn from his colleague that he fell in his own home, hit his head and died. I also attempted to research another former friend from 40+ years ago, but too many other people had the same name, so I decided not to pursue further. When I chose to cancel my membership your Customer Service person handled my request with respect and efficiency. Yes I would recommend tour services for someone in need of finding someone.

    I was able to locate the seller of my family home. County property records had not been updated timely so I chose to look via other methods. When I did a Google search for public records, I chose TruthFinder's to be the most accurate in their findings. This also enabled me to learn more than I had anticipated about the people associated with other family members. I have no plans to use any of that information for anything but found it interesting that you could actually drill down into records of additional people.

    I would definitely recommend the TruthFinder Application to anyone who wanted or needed a relevantly concise, well written and easy to understand report on a person they may have questions about. The report was found quickly, was very easy to read and navigate the different parts. My husband and I are very pleased and will use it again if the need ever arises. Cancelling the subscription was also very easy once we had received the information we needed. I am grateful that such a service exists.

    I needed to do a simple check on an individual. I found everything I needed to know in a very short time. The information was laid out in an easy to follow form. When I was finished, I called to cancel, and their staff was exceptionally friendly, gave me all the information I knew, and help me with my cancellation no problem, I really like the fact that they didn’t push me to continue but I offer all the advice on our doing this again with your company. Thank you for your time. I appreciate it a company that was this easy to work with.

    Based on my limited experience there is no quality control or feedback to correct bad or false information. I will attempt to contact the company, Truthfinder but these days this is a long shot to reach a customer service rep who actually has any authority. There could be a on site method to correct bad data and I realize this might be an expensive improvement. I know I am not the first to have problems with their bad data. Maybe Consumer Affairs could get more involved.

    I will be contacting Truthfinder not about my personal info but about an individual who has not lived at my home for fifteen years. With an FBI, a FEMA, terrorism, and who know what threats are out there it is amazing that one could have an incorrect address for fifteen years, and then no mechanism to correct it. My job if I choose to accept it is to convince the right people that we have a problem. With information becoming more and more automated and monetized this situation is going to get worse.

    It was a wonderful experience using TruthFinder. He help me locate a friend of mine, that I was in third job. By using truth armor, I was able to locate my friend Nancy. We have been friends for over 20 years. She usually text me daily, and I haven’t heard from her lately, so I was worried. But she’s OK, she was just sick.

    Accurate, immediate results. Will use Truthfinder again in the future. Was able to find "lost" relatives with ease. Information discovered helped in re-establishing contact. Would definitely recommend Truthfinder to anyone who wishes to map genealogy or background checks. The truth is out there.
