Before cell phones existed, the easiest way to find someone using their name or phone number was through the yellow pages. The big yellow directory was a permanent fixture in every household and came in very handy when you needed to contact but all you had was either their name or phone number. Ever since mobile phones gained popularity, the yellow pages have disappeared from the scene. But there are still several ways of looking someone up. In this article, we bring you the top ways to find someone using their phone number.

Search for the number on Google
If the number you are searching for belongs to a business, it will appear in a simple Google search. Most businesses have their numbers listed on their Google page/website or indexed by Google. Performing a simple search will bring up all the details of the contact. You can view the location of the contact or tap on ‘Directions’ to be redirected to Google Maps.
SearchPeopleFree is one of the best directories to look people up online. You can search for a person by name, phone number, address, or email. This website uses information in the public domain to bring up the name, address history, social media profiles, and public record of the person you are searching for. The website is free to use and doesn’t require you to sign up. One of the downsides of this service is that it is US-centric.
If you are in India, then TrueCaller is the best way of finding someone using their phone number. To use TrueCaller you need to sign up on the app using your phone number. You can use the app’s services only when you give it access to your contacts. Once you have signed up on TrueCaller, other people can look you up using your name or number too.
To find someone using their phone number, simply tap on the search tab and enter the phone number. TrueCaller will look for the number in its directory and bring up matching results. You can go through the person’s profile on TrueCaller and find their full name, call history (with you), and even block them from contacting you.
Radaris is another website with an exhaustive directory. You can use this website to search for people using their phone number, name, address, email, or business. Radaris draws its data from information in the public domain and compiled it in one place. The website says it is the most comprehensive public records database online. Radaris has been around for 10 years and keeps updating its directory regularly with new entries.

These are the best ways you can find someone using their phone number. If you’re located in India, using TrueCaller is your best bet.

Using their name, you can search for the person on social media until you’ve found a match.
