Pull Public Records With TruthFinder

Why Does TruthFinder Cost Money To Use?

Despite what many people believe,public records aren't free. TruthFinder pays to access the data in our reports. Almost any method of accessing public records involves payment. Even making a request through your local courthouse will usually require you to pay a fee to access their records. Just because the public legally has the right to review certain types ofgovernment records, doesn't mean that they can do so for free. 

Building an online service like TruthFinder, and keeping the site up and running 24/7 is very expensive. We simply would not be able to keep the website up if we gave away reports for free.

Why Isn’t TruthFinder Free?

TruthFinder isn’t free because our product is designed to be fast, convenient, and accurate, and it costs money to support our service.

Sure, you could find public records on your own. But you should know that many states and counties charge a processing fee to obtain court documents likecriminal records. There’s also the personal cost of the time you’d spend waiting in line.

Additionally, knowing where to look for all of these records on your own could prove virtually impossible. While theFreedom of Information Actrequires information to be publicly available, it doesn’t mandate where or how. Each state, county, and jurisdiction maintains its own separate databases for this information, and each source is rarely connected to another.

Anyone searching for a really free background check using city records will likely find the process extremely confusing and time-consuming.

For example, let’s say you’re searching for information about an old friend from high school. You haven’t had any luck finding them on social media. If you want to find their information using public records, you’ll first have to find out where they have lived. Then, you’ll need to figure out how to obtain records from these places. It can take weeks, or even months, to get all of this information.

Are There Any Real, Free Background Checks?

A real, free background check sounds like a great idea. But if you do find a website claiming to offer free background checks, they’re likely out-of-date or just plain wrong.

Really free public records do exist, but tracking down all of the records we include in our background reports is like trying to find a needle in a haystack. Searching for public records from numerous cities, counties, and states can take ages — and you’ll probably have to pay processing fees.

It’s unlikely you’ll find a real free criminal background check that contains all the information aTruthFinder reportdoes. Why not subscribe and have millions of public records at your fingertips almost instantly?

What Can You Find With An TruthFinder Background Check?

Contact Information

Maybe you’ve lost touch with a family member, or maybe you’re trying to reconnect with an old friend. A background report from TruthFinder will show you publicly available contact information associated with a person’s name, includingphone numbersandemail addresses.

Even if you have a person’s email address or phone number, there’s no way of knowing if they still check that account or changed their number — especially if you haven’t spoken in a while. A report may even show you more than one email address or phone number, which gives you plenty of opportunities to reach out ... and possibly learn what that person from your past is doing now.

Social Media Profiles

Facebook, Twitter, and even LinkedIn — if they’ve posted a status update somewhere, odds are that it might show up in a TruthFinder background report. Do some incognito research (you don’t have to tell anyone else who you’re searching) on almost anyone by easily finding their social profiles in one place. You can even do a deep dive on your date’s social profiles before you even meet, without having to search around online.

You can even do some DIY online reputation management by looking yourself up on TruthFinder and getting a sense of what’s associated with your name online. Are there photos you could’ve sworn you deleted? Embarrassing social media accounts you totally forgot about? TruthFinder collates everything in one, easy-to-use report — no digging required.

Location History

By searching through property ownership records, a background report from TruthFinder can show you a person’slocation history— and sometimes, that history can stretch back decades. Maybe you’re trying to reconnect with a family member (or an ex), but they’ve moved since they were last in your life. A background check can show you if they moved to a new city or even a state on the other side of the country.

Known Aliases

You’re searching for a specific name, but what if their name has changed? Maybe you’re searching for your high school sweetheart — what if they married and changed their name? Find out the truth once and for all (and spare yourself some heartbreak) by running a background check on TruthFinder. It’s the easiest way to find out if someone has changed their name, whether they were married or they go by another name.

Criminal Records

What if someone close to you has a criminal record? Is it just a traffic ticket — or is it something more serious? Whether you’re searching for your parent or an old friend, you deserve to know if they have a criminal history.
