A free phone reverse search with name looks for the name of the person registered with a phone number without charging a fee to the user. The search engine conducts online searches of multiple directories to compile information associated with a phone number.

Free phone reverse search is also known as reverse phone lookup. Examples of reverse phone lookup websites include PeopleSmart, SpyDialer or Whitepages. Users should make sure that the lookup website is reviewed and legitimate, according to PeopleSmart.

Given a phone number, the search engine can provide the phone owner's name, address or phone carrier. Users generally have to pay a fee for more comprehensive information about the phone owner.
