Kiwisearches is an online people search engine that offers instant and inexpensive non-FCRA background checks. With a mission to give everyday people access to public information that is otherwise unavailable or difficult to obtain, the website provides a means for anybody of any age to:

  • Re-establish contact with lost family members.

According to the Kiwisearches' disclaimer, there is no guarantee that the data on this site will always be accurate or up-to-date. Despite this, a requester will get charged even if the information is inaccurate or nothing comes up.
