Spokeo Key Features

- Phone lookup returning records linked to a landline or mobile.
- Address lookup, to find current and previous residents, ownership, property details, etc.
- Username search, where you will find all handles by that name – though not necessarily owned by the same individual.

- Combines offline and online data including business details, property information, criminal records, etc.
- Searches diverse types of databases, returning more results than the industry average.
- Searches are limited to the US – and you can only subscribe if you are US-based too.
- No risk ratings, with results up to interpretation rather than presented in context.
