For instance, if a background check subject has any of the following or been recorded within any of the following, TruthFinder will return its findings in its report:
- Contact information
- Birth and death records
- Possible relatives, friends, relationships, and even exes
- Known aliases
- Census data
- Sex offender databases
- Social media and dating profiles
- Educational history
- Criminal and arrest records
- Business affiliations
- Professional licenses
- Weapons permits
Some of these pieces of data are only returned for an additional fee which can be frustrating. Information such as weapons permits, for example, is only part of the premium reports that the company compiles. Bankruptcy is another as well as possible neighbors, educational information, past and current roommates, business associates, professional license and voter registration details.
One of the reports that TruthFinder runs that sets it apart from its competitors is the ability to run a very thorough reverse phone number check. The dark web search is obviously also a fantastic feature to offer a report on as this is where people can hide secrets that they would not want others to know.
It’s important to perform a background check on people in your neighborhood. This is especially true if you have children of your own. A background investigation can reveal any untoward information from a sex offender registry, and it’s a great way to perform a criminal background check. It’s extremely important to know whether there are sex offenders in your neighborhood, and it’s good to know whether your neighbor has been convicted of any criminal charges. On a personal level, background searches are indispensable. You may be applying for a new job, and you will want to know ahead of time what your potential employer will find when they conduct a background search of you. A self-check is a great tool for you to use so that you can prep yourself for any questions that arise at your job interview. Another reason background checks are so important is interpersonal relationships with blind dates, new friendships, and other love interests.
A customer is able to do this quickly as TruthFinder returns supporting information like a person’s social media usag or any data on a person’s relatives that may help to pinpoint who they are and a state records summary.
Once the customer has chosen its subject by picking out the correct person, it is then that they can run searches such as criminal records or searches on court records. Subscribers can also try to run these searches from the outset, which is the same if they want to run a reverse phone search or a dark web search.
- County records
- State records
- Federal records
- Deep Web information
- Social media data
More specifically, the company can discover information on a person if they have any past speeding tickets, or parking tickets, if they have any arrest records or sex offender convictions, if they have a mugshot somewhere on file and any information that comes about from birth or death records. Their in-depth searches of a person’s social media use is interesting as it means they can generate a picture of a subject in terms of online aliases and email addresses too.
Drawbacks and Limitations
Other limitations would be the lack of a live chat feature which can prove extremely helpful at times when customers have a quick query they need answered. This too will be discussed below in the Support section of this review.
A three-month membership is slightly cheaper at $23.02, which is still fairly expensive but perhaps more useful to companies that run background checks on a regular basis. For this fee, users get those same standard reports and the ability to generate as many of them as they want within their subscription’s time period.
A premium report costs $17.47 a time. However, if you use the website for long enough and it’s your first time on the site itself, the company will offer you a free trial for just $1.
For those that need to run many a report each month, it is definitely a good option. In fact, some well-known news outlets and other media companies use TruthFinder for this purpose which is reassuring to potential clients. While the rolling monthly subscription cost may be a little above market averages, the fact that an unlimited amount of reports can be generated for this one cost also gives confidence to users.
Additionally, the amount of data sources that the company uses to generate reports is also a huge confidence builder. It means that potential and current customers can rely on the data given to them without having to worry about the veracity of the facts included in a report.
