The most popular place to learn about people.

We’re building better ways to explore, find, and manage information about people — because being informed matters.

Our Story

We are one of the largest and most trusted sources in the people search industry.

Our story began as two companies in the business of finding and managing information about people. Using the combined resources of The Control Group and PeopleConnect, we united as one company to be the digital identity company that empowers consumers to make informed decisions.
Through Classmates' one-of-a-kind social network, Intelius' reverse phone profiles, TruthFinder's broad reach, US Search's legacy, and Instant Checkmate's trusted insight, we are one of the largest and most trusted sources in the people search industry.

Nathan KnutzenDirector, Business Analytics

I love working at PeopleConnect because I feel like my ideas can have a real impact at the company. Also, management helps employees feel empowered to speak up if something can be improved or fixed even if will be a difficult task. I also appreciate the work-life balance PeopleConnect offers that can be hard to find at technology companies.
