Searching an email address may help you discover its owner and any possible details about that person, known or unknown to you. In fact, a quick email address search may help protect you from an email scam if the sender has been marked as a possible scammer searching to obtain money or your personal information. Not sure if an email has suspicious content and don’t want to open it just in case? You can check out the email address and find out if you need to block the sender. Similarly, if you’re conducting some business with a stranger and don’t know their name but have their email address, you can verify their identity in this way.
But the benefits of searching an email address don’t stop there. Have an old email address of a friend or acquaintance and want to update their contact information in your records? You can search for that email address!
At PeopleLooker, we believe that people should use data in public records to inform their decisions in the day-to-day. After all, when the clues are out there, it’s up to us to use them to our advantage! However, it may be confusing where to start. Beyond searching for the email addresses that are unfamiliar to you, we recommend searching your own. By doing this, you may find out why you’re getting unsolicited emails, and therefore decide how to handle them. If you’re searching for a long-lost family member or classmate, an email address search may confirm that the contact information you have on file is correct or in what way it’s off. We also recommend turning on our Monitoring feature to get inbox updates on reports. The possibilities are endless — it’s just up to you to use the information you have at your fingertips creatively and responsibly.
