Where does PeopleFinders get its information?
PeopleFinders pulls its information from a variety of publicly accessible sources. Our primary source of information is what's called "public records." Public records are official, publicly-available documents, including such things as a person's birth records, criminal records, and property records. We get this kind of data from thousands of reporting courts and other government agencies at the federal, state and local level.
Publicly Published Information
Second, either directly or via third-party data collectors, we aggregate information from publicly published sources, such as phone directories, online articles/news items, and personal and professional social media profiles.
Finally, we gather data that is created and/or shared by a subject during the course of performing other activities. They can include contact information and other data from things like:
- Online shopping accounts
- Magazine subscriptions
- Sweepstakes entries
- Voter registrations
- Hunting/fishing licenses
- Professional business licenses
- And more
PeopleFinders does not share or sell the personal information you provide in the creation of a PeopleFinders account, nor do we put it into our database. Your account information is considered private and, therefore, confidential.
