While NumberGuru offers industry-leading, reliable, affordable, user-friendly phone search services, there are times, instances and scenarios when you may not use NumberGuru. Specifically, NumberGuru may not be used if the information you are seeking is governed by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) and/or pertains to searching a number or caller in connection with considering someone for employment, reassignment, promotion or retention (even, for example, a possible nanny, babysitter, tutor or even soccer coach), or considering someone as a tenant or roommate, or considering someone for a scholarship or admission, or assessing the risk of someone's existing credit obligation or otherwise considering eligibility for issuing credit or insurance, or reviewing to determine whether a customer continues to meet the terms of an account, or any other context relegated to consumer reporting agencies, which NumberGuru is not. Please see our Terms of Service for additional information.
Yes. One of the main reasons people use our site is to try and learn more about a person that they met online in anticipation of meeting in person. People also use NumberGuru to try and learn more about someone they are dating. Please be advised, however, that no information that NumberGuru provides can ever assure you that a stranger is in fact safe and accordingly you should always exercise caution when planning to meet with someone that you do not know well or have met online.
Yes. Provided you are otherwise complying with our Terms of Service and are in no way harassing or stalking any individual and there is no legal barrier, such as a restraining order or protective order, many use NumberGuru to try and find someone with whom they have lost contact.
Yes. Consumers and online shoppers often use NumberGuru to learn more about online sellers and merchants. Please be advised, however, that no information that NumberGuru provides can ever guarantee that a seller is safe or legitimate and you should always exercise caution. Always take precautions and practice safety first when considering to meet with a buyer or seller you have met online.
Yes. NumberGuru endeavors to provide up-to-date phone numbers and addresses that can assist with countless tasks, like finding addresses for holiday cards and wedding invitations, or finding a number you simply no longer have handy.
Regular monitoring of your online presence and reviewing what information (or misinformation) about you is publicly available is often advisable and some of our users take advantage of our Dark Web feature to try and assist with identifying stolen passwords or even identity theft.
No, you cannot. That use is prohibited by our terms and the FCRA. You may want to directly contact their educational institutions for that information.
Possibly, though it may not be healthy. If you are curious and doing nothing that could be construed as stalking or harassing your ex or another, you will still want to remain cautious about using any service to learn more about a former interest's current significant other. At the same time, if you are a parent, it is very natural to want to learn more about a a potential new stepmom or stepdad who will be spending time with your children or someone who may be driving your children.
No. While we understand why you would want to search a potential domestic employee that will be in close proximity with your family, FCRA specifically prohibits using people search services as a form of background checks to make employment decisions. Employment background screenings, such as GoodHire, are better options for such contexts.
That depends on the business decision. As explained above, if you are an employer, you cannot use NumberGuru to make employment decisions, to assess credit worthiness or provide insurance services or the like. Absent any violation of NumberGuru's Terms of Service you should be ok to use NumberGuru to try and learn more about potential business partners.
You absolutely cannot use NumberGuru to screen tenants or roommates, even subletting property. This should be done through formal credit reporting agencies.
No, you may not use NumberGuru when evaluating someone as a candidate to adopt a pet, service animal, human or any other item under consideration for entrusting in someone's care or custodianship.
No, you may not use NumberGuru to vet eligibility or fitness of someone to participate in, be considered for, admitted to, or to be a beneficiary or recipient (or otherwise entitle someone to gain from), any non-profit, grant or charitable program or activity.
