I see a lot of people requesting a free people search, unfortunately, there is really no such thing as a free people search with a social security number.
But don’t despair; I will reveal the truth about free people searches here. No tricks, no schemes, no sales pitch – only information and explanations.
First let me explain. There really is no way that someone can enter a social security number into a website and get the name or address of a person for free. Social Security Numbers are used as a National ID number and there are security issues surrounding the data.
- Almost everyone you do business with (Companies, medical, dental, credit, financial, businesses, and even private firms) request your Social Security Number (Tax Identification) when you do business with them. Even your employer needs your SSN for their records.
- You are constantly giving out your SSN on all sorts of forms, employment applications and much more. In some states, your SSN is or was used as a Drivers License number or on a health insurance card as an identification number.
- There are also many companies that collect, store and warehouse all types of data so there is a cost associated with data entry, security, data storage, encryption, administration, overhead, insurance, and so many other business expenses. That’s the main reason you really can’t get an effective free people search.
There is also a lot of concern about identity theft so many states and businesses are changing the way they use and share SSN information.
If you could visit a website and enter in an SSN and get back personal information about the social security number without any form of payment, then that website really has no idea who requested or obtains information. That would not be good.
SearchBug.com has a “know your customer” policy and we verbally verify every new customer registration for purchases. This ensures someone from our customer service team personally speaks to every new customer that registers an account with us. This is a time-consuming and expensive process but it assures information and search requests are held to the strictest of confidentiality and privacy.
Ok, back to free people search with social security number information. The only thing you can really do with a social security number that does not cost anything is a free social security verification.
That is where you enter the SSN into our special free SSN verification tool and we will tell you if the SSN is valid (meaning if the number has been issued according to the SSN high group chart from SSA.GOV) or if it’s even active (via a check using SSN death records – SSDI) and also tell you what state issued the SSN (if valid).
We are proud to say that we verified over 1,000,000 social security numbers for free helping employers know if an SSN has really been issued – No charge SSN verification’s
