How to search by a person's phone number

  • By phone number: this is what is known as “reverse phone lookup”. In November 2010, Google changed its policy and closed its phone number pages. However, it is still possible to find some data.
  • If you enter a phone number with the area code included in the search box, you will see dozens of telephone directories. If the number belongs to a business, it will appear first.
  • If the number belongs to a home, usually the address does not appear, but if its owner has added it somewhere else on the internet, for example, a Facebook page or similar will appear.
  • If you know the name and area code (zip code) write it in the search box and you can see the phone number.
  • In the google search, the phone numbers that have been removed from the public lists will not appear by decision of their owner. Generally it is also very difficult to find information when looking for cell phone numbers.

Nicknames or usernames

If you know that a person uses a nickname in quotation marks and combine it with other information that you know, for example, company in which you work, sports club or organization to which you belong, etc.
