What is Publicseek?

This advanced search tool helps you find out sensitive and potentially shocking information about anyone by going through billions of public records.

What can you use it for?

  • Find out who is behind a phone number or e-mail

What comes in a Standard Background Report?

Publicseek's Standard Background Report contains, where available, a person’s date of birth, phone numbers, address history, related persons, arrest records, government license information, social media profiles (including email addresses), and nearby sex offenders. A subscription to Publicseek's Standard Background Report service allows you to obtain reports about persons during your subscription period. After subscribing, you will also have the opportunity to upgrade your Standard Report to a Premium Report, which will supply additional and supplemental data about a person, for $19.95.

Where do you get the information in the Publicseek reports?

We go through more than 10bn public records, checking through vast databases from trustworthy suppliers. That’s how we manage to get so much information on every name, phone number, address, or e-mail that our users search for.

How accurate and up to date is the information in the reports?

We make sure we only include accurate and updated information in the reports. We update our records every 24 hours to be able to show you the latest information available. If you find reports that are outdated, please contact us and we will immediately remediate the situation.

Why should I get a Premium Report?

The Publicseek Premium Report contains extremely valuable information. It is the most extensive background search possible. It reveals all there is to know about a person, address, e-mail, or phone number.

Why do I have to pay for a report?

We want to offer you complete, accurate, and updated information. We mean sensitive details that you can’t find anywhere else. We know that your privacy, safety, and peace of mind are at stake, that’s why we work with premium information suppliers. Performing searches through more than 10bn public records involves significant costs for us, and if we offered them for free we would be out of business and it would be impossible for us to help you find out the truth.

Why choose Publicseek over other background search tools?

Publicseek makes it easier than ever to find out valuable information. It’s fast, reliable, accurate and up to date. You can opt for a membership or just for a one time report. Also, Publicseek alerts you when there is new information on the people, addresses, phone numbers, or e-mails you’ve already searched for. All this for a more than reasonable membership rate that you can cancel anytime.
