Absolute People Search is a non-FCRA regulated public records database that provides easy access to information on individuals. The site sources its content from open government records and other third-party data aggregator sites. Members of the public can find and view a person's information using six different search engines:

Each tool has specific search phrases that must be entered to return results, such as a name, phone number, email, social media username, city, or state. Search results may include civil judgments, social networking accounts, contact information, criminal records, images, police records, personal connections, death records, lawsuits, properties owned, weapons permits, financial history, and so on.

The site also features a directory of existing public records. The information provided via the directory includes a short bio, neighbors, and family data. Other information accessible on the directory include the search subject's phone number, address, date of birth, age, net worth, credit score, ethnic group, time zone, marital status, home type, and spoken languages.

The key difference between the two techniques of securing public records through Absolute People Search is that there is no charge to view primary data from the directory, but there is one to obtain results with the search engines indicated above. Still, individuals who want to get more information from the directory, such as a person’s family members, criminal background, social media profiles, assets/properties owned, personal connections, or education/employment history, must pay a fee.

The website offers a 7-day trial at $4.95, after which a monthly fee of $19.99 will be charged to view reports. However, an interested person may subscribe for a membership account at $19.99 per month instead. This amount, though similar to the first, gives the member access to unlimited reports.

Absolute People Search recommends its database for connecting with old friends, personal business, protection, discovering cheaters and scammers, and more. However, the website warns people against using information obtained from the site for FCRA (Fair Credit Reporting Act, 15 USC 1681 et seq.) purposes, such as tenant screening, personal credit, employment, etc., because it is not a consumer reporting agency.

Individuals whose personal details show up in search results on Absolute People Search can delete their information by submitting a form or contacting customer support.

How to Opt-Out of AbsolutePeopleSearch

Absolute People Search provides members of the public with a way to opt-out or remove their personal information from its website. The opt-out form can be accessed in two ways:

Method I:

  • Go to Absolutepeoplesearch.com.
  • Scroll to the end of the homepage or any page and click "Removal Request." This opens up the opt-out process page.
  • Fill in a first name, middle name, last name, phone number, verification, and check the box titled, "This information belongs to me."
  • Click “Submit.”

Method II:

  • Open Absolutepeoplesearch.com.
  • Select "Directory" at the top-right corner of the page.
  • Select the individual's state of residence.
  • Choose the first letter of the person's last name.
  • Click the matching name. Sometimes, the name comes with the individual's age to help narrow down results.
  • On the following page, a "Removal Request" button will be located at the top of the individual's information, above "Address." Click the button.

This action takes the requester back to the opt-out process page mentioned above. The difference is that the phone number, first name, middle name, and last name will be filled automatically.

  • Enter a verification email and check "This information belongs to me."
  • Select "Submit."

In both instances, Absolute People Search will send an email to the address provided. Open this email and select "Complete Removal." This submits the request to Absolute People Search for processing and approval.

Note that only the individual whose information is listed on the site or a person authorized to act on that individual's behalf—for example, a legal guardian—can request removal from Absolute People Search.
