How to Search Free Online White Pages Directories To Find Phone Numbers, Addresses and People

Can't find who you're looking for? Search here!

Searching the white pages for a phone number is one of the most common activities performed on the internet today.  It is easier and faster to search an online telephone directory using a computer or mobile phone than calling directory assistance, or 411.  Using the internet to search white pages allows you to find people, business listings, phone numbers, addresses, area codes, ZIP codes and postal codes free of charge.  The typical online search site allows a nationwide online telephone directory to be searched by first and last names and reverse searches can be conducted by phone number.

Quite often, white page lookup websites also provide a variety of reverse address and reverse phone number lookup tools, international calling codes, and area code maps. These helpful search tools provide a free, simple, fast and reliable way to identify personal and business contact information.

Private investigators can use online white page search directories to verify addresses as a part of a background check. While a true background check is much more involved, a basic background check can involve such things as address verification, employment verification, phone number check, and an address check. The point of such a basic background check is to simply verify that someone is who they claim to be. If an individual is being considered for employment, a more thorough and extensive background check is warranted. For more information on background investigations, visit our Background Check section.

      Just visit any one of the sites and enter the number. If you’re not having any luck, it is possible that the phone number is unlisted. Unlisted numbers are difficult, if not impossible, to obtain by searching online.

        Hello My name is Judy. I have a group on Facebook. Called
        “WHERE ARE YOU” I do searches to find friends and family members that you have lost touch with. All you have to do is come and join my group and have the person’s name, age and last known location. I have had the group since 2013 I started to find my high school sweetheart from 45 years ago. I did find him too. I also have a 95% success rate and lots of reviews in the group comment section. The reason I think I am so successful Is I am disabled and cannot work so I have lots of time to do the searches. For the last 31/2 years I have never ask for anything in return for my services. But this year I am asking for donations if I find the person your looking for. I had an apt fire and lost everything and then my car broke down and I am unable now to get back and forth to the doctor. I have two elderly sisters who cannot help me so I am on my own. I have a Go Fund Me and you do not have to donate until I find who it is you are trying to locate. When I do find them at that time I would ask you to donate what every you can. If you agree then come and join my group and post who it is you would like for me to find. I need their name, age and last known location. I only do searches in the United States. I hope you will consider joining and giving me a try. Here is the link to my group on facebook and I sure do hope to see you there. Thanks
