A reverse phone number search is performed on a site that specializes in various types of phone and address searches. Sites require a phone number to perform the search.
As of 2015, the White Pages is a good site to use for reverse phone number searches. Users enter a phone number and results are provided. If a phone number is public, the search can provide the first and last name of the person calling. In some cases, an address and phone provider are also given. The White Pages site is free to use.
The website 411 is another good site to use in this type of search, and also offers other services. Users can search for phone numbers using a name, address, city or state. Reverse address searches are also available and provide personal information for people who reside at a specific address. Business listings can also be found on the site.
The Intelius site is another good location for reverse lookups. The site also offers email reverse searches as well as social media searches. Intelius can perform background checks for a nominal fee. Searches are private and information is not shared with third parties. Free user accounts can be created to store searches. Information on this site can be found through forms of social media, including Facebook.
