How to search for a person by name

If you want to search for a person on the Internet and if you remember his name and surname perfectly, you can appeal to the use of the online services listed below.

PeekYou

Do you want to search for a person on the Internet whose name you only remember? Well, then I can't help but advise you to resort to using PeekYou. It is a free online service that allows you to view many public data about other people on a single page, including links to social networks to which they are subscribed.



To be able to search for a person through PeekYou, the first step you need to take is to click here, in order to immediately connect to their home page. Then select the tab Name located in the center of the page and write the name and surname of the person of your interest in the text fields First Name e Last Name. Please note that the service also allows you to filter the results by selecting a location via the menu Rental, but at the moment only American states are available, so the function in question will hardly be useful to you. As soon as you are ready to do it, start the search by clicking on the green button on which the is represented magnifying glass.

On the page that opens, find the information about the person you are looking for. As you can see, they are inserted in special sections: I suggest you leave those present in the boxes Public Records & Background ChecksArrest Records & Driving Infractions e email Addresses, because this is information available to people living in the United States and not to click on the links in them because they simply refer to PeekYou partner services.



Instead, I suggest you carefully examine the links in the sections Facebook, Twitter, InstagramPictures because, as you may have already guessed, they present the links attached to the social profiles to which the person you are "investigating" may have registered. Keep in mind that there may be cases of homonymy and, for this reason, it is not certain that the links to the social profiles identified all belong to the person of your interest. Understood?

Google

I'm sure it may seem like an emeritated banality, but keep in mind that too Google it can be a good ally to try to search for a person on the Internet. You do not believe me? Well, try it, it costs you nothing!

To search for a person on the Internet with Google, just type in address bar of your favorite web browser www.google.com, press the button Submit on the keyboard and insert in the Campo di Ricerca present in the center of the screen displayed on name or nickname of the person about whom you intend to obtain more details (perhaps by writing it in quotes). Afterwards, come on Submit on your computer keyboard or click on the button Search with Google visible on the screen.

Once this is done, you should see a whole series of search results referring to the name, e-mail address, nickname or telephone number of the person you would like to receive more information about: click on the search result you think might be more relevant to get more details.


If you want more information on how Google works and how to search on Google, take a look at the guides that I linked to you: I'm sure they could be useful.
