Peoplelooker Review – 2018 Version : Detailed Test


If you have ever tried a background check over the Internet, you probably know already how frustrating it is to go from one result to another, hoping to find the info you require. Sometimes, information is available for free. Other times, you have to pay for it – understandable if it is an official courthouse website, but totally wrong if it is a random website. This is when PeopleLooker kicks in.

What PeopleLooker Does

PeopleLooker is an online background check tool gathering together all the info you require from viable sources. You have everything you want in one simplistic report that may extend over more than a decade. Obviously, basic information like contacts, previous addresses or criminal records is also included. However, you will also get details on education, marriages, arrests, social media networks and so on.

In other words, PeopleLooker makes background checks a breeze for anyone, regardless of their experience. It is a simple and affordable experience that will add to your peace of mind and satisfy your curiosity.


PeopleLooker is quite new when compared to other similar background check tools. It was established in 2006, but it came out to bring something new and convenient. Its reports are simpler, as well as more accurate. Despite being new, it gained a huge reputation within its first year on the market.


PeopleLooker can be accessed from any device connected to the Internet. You can use it on any browser. Simply load the address, login and start searching.

Cannot Be Used for…

When you go to PeopleLooker for the first time, you will have to read a notice in order to move on to the actual service.

From this point of view, you cannot use the service to make decisions regarding employment or insurance, among a few others. After all, it is not an official report agency.

Our PeopleLooker Review

What We Like

The organizational aspect of your reports is the best thing associated with PeopleLooker. Most background check websites will provide similar information, but finding what you truly need will take ages. There are no paragraphs and no blank lines between sections. With PeopleLooker, everything changes. Important details are visible at a glance.

Another good thing about it is the deeper research. Sure, most checkers will give you past and current addresses or criminal records. How many of them will display marriage information, educational courses, DUI arrests, social media profiles and so on? Exactly!

The dedication to providing good customer service is basically what PeopleLooker floats around. Customer service representatives will try their best to be straightforward and provide valuable information both prior and after the sale.

What We Do not Like

In an age where everyone wants everything right now, no one wants to wait for hours to get an email reply. You want live chat sessions and phone numbers to call the customer service. Unfortunately, PeopleLooker does not provide live chat, while the phone is restricted to working hours – no 24/7 service.

Start Free Trial

PeopleLooker does not provide a free trial and it is easy to tell why. Building a background check report involves details from free sources and paid sources. It is no point to provide a free trial when the result must be payable for. However, you can search your target’s name for free and pay for the service only if you want to see the report. This way, you make sure that the name you research is there.

Information Included in the Report

Some of the main info included in a PeopleLooker background check are general and include past and current addresses, census data or contacts, to name a few. But then, the list goes further than that:

  • Property details – Satisfy your curiosity and discover details like satellite maps, property tax amount, value or building specifications.
  • Arrest or conviction records – Find out whether your potential partner or new neighbor has a criminal record.
  • Financial situation – Make sure your new partner is financially stable and find out whether they have ever filled for bankruptcy.
  • Social media accounts – While anyone can perform a Facebook or Instagram search, there are plenty of other networks that your target might use.
  • Pictures – Believe it or not, PeopleLooker can even grab pictures of your target and display them in the report.
  • Education and profession – Curious what your best friend from high-school is doing now? You can discover their education courses, as well as working history.

Customer Reviews

Given how fast PeopleLooker has become a primary background check tool for so many people, its reputation leaves no room for misinterpretations. Sure, you can find some negative reviews too, but most users are happy with the results they receive.


Unlike other similar services that provide sophisticated packages, PeopleLooker keeps it clean and simple. There are only two plans for those who plan to use the service.

The one month membership only costs $28.42 a month. It will renew automatically after one month. You can perform as many searches as you want during this time.

The three month membership will cost you $59.67 in total – not more than $19.89 a month. In other words, you get a massive discount if you plan to use the background check tool on a regular basis.

How to Disable PeopleLooker Notifications

Disabling notifications depends on the browser you use, but they all work on the same principles. Just like for other similar tools, you will have to go to preferences or settings, find notifications and locate the PeopleLooker website.
