BeenVerified.com Review: Is It A Scam Or Legit? (2022)

Last updated on July 7, 2022 by Roxana Bikfalvi

Running a background search on your new date or partner sounds natural in today’s world. There are many people search sites to consider but one of the most noteworthy is BeenVerified.com. Read my review to learn more about this service.

BeenVerified.com is a people search site similar to Truth Finder. Both sites draw information from the public records to put together detailed reports about one’s past and users tend to choose one site over the other based on preference.

However, BeenVerified seems a tad more complex and easier to use than its truth finder counterpart. This tech-savvy platform allows for multiple types of searches and even suggests what you can or can’t use the service for.

Like most sites, BeenVerified.com is not for everyone. Here are a few things to consider before subscribing.

Like most people search services, BeenVerified.com uses public records and delivers a report containing extensive publicly available details of one's past. These reports contain general information like age, address, and phone number, as well as criminal and traffic record information.

Due to the amount of sensitive data included in each report, the service is dedicated exclusively to honest people who mean no harm. However, the site does little to monitor its members, therefore almost everyone can access the data for whatever purpose.

Yet, I discourage using the service if you want to stalk someone or to bring moral or physical harm.

Another thing you should know is that BeenVerified is not a free service. This is a logical consequence of the effort put by the platform into scouring all databases in search for the information you need and luckily, membership plans come at affordable prices.

Regarding payment and pricing, another thing to know is that a membership plan only gives you access to basic reports that usually contain information you can easily search by yourself via free search engines. Certainly, the process is time-consuming and I’d much rather pay a small fee and receive everything in minutes instead of searching for that data myself.

However, if you’re unwilling to pay for something that’s already out there, this service might not be for you.

Lastly, you must also know that BeenVerified monitors exclusively the US residents. You won’t be able, for example, to search for your Irish uncle if he’s never lived in the States.


Been Verified

BeenVerified.com is a people search platform committed to scrapping down the internet for the most personal details included in the public records of almost everyone who lives or has lived in the US. The service was launched in New York in 2007 and their owners have a tech-savvy approach that makes the platform ridiculously easy to use.

Accessing a report on someone requires literally minutes. You will have to fill in the form on the homepage and click on the search button.

The platform needs a few minutes to collect the information and put it together into a detailed file, then it prompts you to create an account and subscribe to a membership plan to access the data. Payment is quick and once your query has been processed, you’ll get the basic report including bountiful information about the searched person.

Accessing more sensitive data requires a supplementary fee, which luckily is affordable.

The service is ideal for a wide range of purposes. For example, you can use it to search on a date, to monitor your kid, to search for lost relatives or friends, and the list could go on and on.

Like anything else, the platform comes with pluses and minuses. Let’s have a more in-depth look at them.


  • Fast verification service: just type in the name and state where the person lives and you’ll get your results in minutes.
  • Multiple search options: if you don’t know the name but have a phone number or email address, you can use that to search who the person is.
  • Consumer tools: the site is designed with the users in mind and includes a series of resources intended to help subscribers make the best use of their membership.


  • The basic report is detailed but incomplete and you’ll have to pay extra to access all details. Although there are various membership plans, they are rather expensive.

By now you should have a clear understanding of what BeenVerified.com is and how it must be used. Yet, if you’re not yet sure the service is for you, have a look at the following features to decide.


While all people search services do the same thing, the amount of information included in the reports varies from platform to platform.

BeenVerified includes a wealth of information if the basic report which contains details of a person’s personal details including name, knows aliases, address, and phone number, criminal records, or civil law issues.

Up to this point, the platform offers the same amount of information as all people search sites.

Is it like pulling teeth getting him to spend time with you?
The key to solving is understanding men on a much deeper emotional level. The number #1 factor that causes men to behave this way is actually relatively easy to change with a few subtle things you can say to him.

But this platform takes things one step further and also includes details about one’s relatives, neighbors, and even imposters.

This report also includes information and links to associated social media accounts.


If you’re still not happy with the amount of information included, you can pay for a Premium report which includes further details such as education and bankruptcies. Other things included in the Premium report are judgments, permits, or licenses someone may possess.

Now, if you really want to search everything about someone, getting a report may be a great idea. But in most cases, I feel a basic report suffices.

Also, remember that BeenVerified.com is not FCRA approved, therefore you can’t use the service to conduct a background search on future employees or tenants, or for credit and loan purposes.


This feature is similar to Truth Finder’s reverse phone search feature and works in the same way. It is ideal to use if you’re receiving suspect phone calls or if you want to search who’s contacting your partner.  The search allows you to insert a phone number and it will return fast results.

My testing revealed these details were majorly accurate but some details, such as the carrier or the associated email address could be inaccurate.


A function present on only a few people search sites that allow you to conduct a reverse search using the email instead of the phone number.

Using this feature allows you to search the name of someone you’ve met online if they refuse to disclose their full name and is particularly important if you want to search more about a potential online dating partner.


The benefits of BeenVerified.com go beyond personal monitoring of people; you can use the advanced search features in your dashboard to search details about a property you’re interested in.

This is one of the features I like best and that I used when searching for a new home after getting married.

Property Search is very easy to use. Just fill in the details of the property, aka the address, and the software will return a detailed report including past owners and tenants, tax problems, information about the neighborhood, and other interesting details that can make or break your deal.


Another nice feature, especially if you’re a parent of teens, is the possibility to monitor other people’s social media accounts. The platform warns you when someone brought changes to the public information included in these accounts.


Using the platform even on the go is possible thanks to the intuitive app available for Android and Apple devices, including Apple smartwatches.

Admittedly I enjoyed the app much more than the platform when it comes to actually search but preferred the desktop version to access the report.

The best part of the app is that you can use it anywhere, and that’s particularly useful if you want to run a background search on someone you’ve just met at a party.


If you encounter any problems while using the service, a friendly customer service team available 7 days a week will answer all your questions and concerns.

As a side note, you’ll have to contact customer service if you want to cancel your subscription. Sadly, there is no option to manage this online and the membership plan will renew automatically unless you cancel before the renewal date.


BeenVerified.com is a great people search service that is truly worth every dime. It provides detailed reports on most people and is only limited by the geographical area and amount of information available in the public records.

Most trial tests I run returned results with a decent level of accuracy. From my experience, I can say BeenVerified is perfect for search information about your new date, monitoring your husband and kids, and even conducting a personal background search to make sure there are no mistakes in your records.

Certainly, this platform has its limits and won’t give you a report if there is no data available. But in general lines, the service is satisfactory and noteworthy if you want to stay updated and aware of your surroundings.
