Intelius People Search Review

Written by Jason Lee -

Service Overview

Intelius offer a searchable database for people search and background check services. This service is limited to people residing in the United States of America.

With a name or a phone number, you can begin your search to reconnect with family and friends, or know more about a person of interest.

Report Information

The report breaks the information down in to easy to navigate categories. The summary view gives you a quick breakdown of records in the report and links to view more detail.

Criminal history is available but is limited to a single state. A nationwide check is available at an extra cost above the standard report.


The accuracy of the information presented in searches will differ between people. Some records were accurate, while others were several years out of date.

Like with any background check service, the data is unlikely to be 100% accurate.

Final Verdict

The people search reports offer basic information, which does not offer much insight. The background report offers the best information, albeit costly when compared with competitors.
