About Spokeo

Spokeo is a people search engine promising to be of aid to anyone seeking information about individuals and businesses.   Both SEON and Spokeo are frictionless and confidential, but there are several key differences. Let’s take a closer look.

Spokeo Key Features

  • Name lookup, including the names of businesses.
  • Email lookup, returning the full name associated with it and several social media accounts.
  • 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.
Pros of Spokeo
  • Long-standing, reliable product well known in the USA.
  • 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.
Cons of Spokeo
  • 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.
  • Quantity over quality: useful as a starting point to your OSINT search rather than concluding it.
