Four Easy Ways to Track Somebody Down Online

Today, it’s harder to find somebody who does not have any trace of their personal lives stored online, particularly thanks to the rise in social media popularity. But, people are increasingly looking for ways to keep their personal information as private as possible online. But if you’re trying to find an old friend or relative that you’ve lost touch with over the years, or want to learn more about somebody that you’ve just met, you might turn to the internet to try and find them. Here are some tips and tricks to help you find anybody online.

Make Google Work for You:

If you’ve ever met somebody but never got the chance to exchange contact details, you’ll know how frustrating it can be. Thankfully, Google can provide the answers that you need, but what if you don’t know the person’s full name, or what if they have the same name as a famous actor? Make Google work for you and improve your search results by typing in anything that you know about the person such as their name, job or school, and location to narrow down your results. If you can find a picture of them in Google Image Search, conduct a reverse image search on the photo to see if it is anywhere else online.

Utilize Social Media:

Today, the majority of people use social media at least a little. And even if somebody has a Facebook account that they rarely use, it can be a useful way to find them and find out more about them online. Facebook People Search is an ideal option for finding somebody online as you can narrow down your search using the filters provided if you have information on the person such as their location, employer, school, or mutual friends.


People Search Sites:

People search sites can be a very useful resource for finding people online. Nuwber is a very convenient people search service that is easy to use with a simple, intuitive interface. It has a very large database of people and you can use it to find all kinds of information on somebody including addresses, telephone numbers, lawsuits, property ownership records, police records, and more. And, all searches are confidential, so the person you’re looking for doesn’t have to know about your search if you don’t want them to.


Most people today will have at least one email address either for personal or business purposes. If you are looking for somebody on social media but all you have is their work email, the good news is that you may be able to use this information to find their profile. There are various tools and browser extensions that you can use like Sales Navigator for Google which helps you find somebody on Linkedin if you only have a work email for them. You can also simply search for their email address in Google and see if any further information comes up.

In the information age of today, most people can’t escape being found somewhere online, so whether you’re searching for somebody that you just met and want to learn more about, or trying to track down an old friend or relative that you have not been in touch with for some time, there are certainly plenty of ways to try and find their online presence.
