Identity Verification

By verifying a subject’s name, date of birth, address history, and Social Security Number, we help eliminate the possibility of fake and misleading information.

Sex offender registry

We investigate two sex offender registry database searches covering every U.S. state and territory.

FBI and international wanted lists

We look at high­-level criminal data provided by partner countries to search for wanted foreign nationals, international sex offenders, and traffickers.

Every background check is personally reviewed for accuracy by one of our safety experts.
