FAQ

How does this work? Where does this information come from?
PhoneSeek is an advanced search gateway that grants you access to hundreds of millions of records about landline, mobile, and unlisted phone numbers. These records are collected from public information and other sources.

What is the purpose of a reverse phone search?
There are many reasons why you might want to conduct a reverse phone search:

  • Find out the source of a harassing (“prank”) caller
  • Research a number that appeared on your phone bill
  • Locate an old friend from high school or college
  • Research “missed calls” on your caller ID that you don’t recognize
  • Verify an address
  • And more

Note: By using our website, you agree to use the information found only for permitted reasons.

Is anyone notified that I searched for them?
No. Your searches within our database are confidential.

How do I get my own information deleted from these databases?
We take your privacy very seriously. You can “opt-out” of our website and members area for free.

Our opt-out system prevents your information from appearing to users that visit PhoneSeek or its affiliates. It does not, however, remove your records from the source databases that we use (we have no control over these). That’s why we created our Online Privacy Protection™ package.

This package will help you remove your personal information from 44 of these databases– and prevent certain data-brokers from selling your records in the future. You can purchase this package for just $4.95 on the registration page by selecting the check box near the bottom that says “Yes, I want to make my data private.”
