You can choose from instant search reports, advanced person searches or background checks.

US Search provides additional information for extra fees. When you sign up, your report is available for instant online viewing with the option to download and print.

This site has in the past and is currently helping me out. I have received a lot of weird calls and emails and even though I know the information may not be up to date so far everything has been right. Plus I had an issue accessing my account and customer service was very helpful and accommodating.

    I have used US Search quite a lot over the years, have found a lot of my old Military friends and have had great reunions. I subscribed recently to find an old friend in Florida, no luck with phone number or an address, take into consideration the hurricane had recently hit Florida and completely wiped out the area I was searching for, I subscribed for that search. Called customer service and did a cancelation of my subscription. The customer service was great, friendly and answered all my question. Thanks again, Happy customer.

    So incredibly helpful with my job as I have a VERY large customer base. Working in customer service as well as finances, it's crucial that I can connect with my previous customers and this platform helps me be able to connect with my customers that may have moved, changed numbers, or emails.

    I received so much detail for the best price. I will definitely use this in the future for my personal safety. I used it to make sure I wasn’t being scammed by someone. I had to make sure they were really who they said they were before I gave them my money for a product. Thank you for easing my mind. I fully trust them now.

    Great search tool! Pricing is affordable and easy to use. You are gonna need to pay 3.99 for each feature which is much cheaper than the other sites I've been to. The amount of data that is provided matches the other sites and seems at least this far to be accurate. Anyway, monthly service is reasonably priced. I am very happy with finding this site.

    The rep was very helpful. She help me located the account and she explained to me everything I asked and was very patient and understanding. Even when she answered the phone she was very pleasant and listened to everything I had to say.

    Having all of the top background search applications and subscriptions and this is the first to have any information regarding the individual I have been investigating. The information obtained has been very helpful with providing our client with substantial information on this individual history and locations.

    I have had some success in finding a person but the information was not up to date. Your receptionists have all been very professional and nice. I still use the app when I need to look someone up. It serves the purpose but phone numbers and addresses are almost all outdated.

    I misplaced my folder for this account. Consequently, I lost access to my password and username. The folks in customer service were most helpful and I was able to get everything back. I was also able to confirm the site does not sell email addresses.
