Why you should use a reverse phone search toolFebruary 19, 2019
When we were younger, I remember that a fun way to prank your friends was to call them from an unknown number. You can either say something creepy to scare them a bit or you can just morph your voice and pretend you don’t know who you’re calling. Either way, it was great fun and we would all laugh about it after it.
But now that we got a bit older and more mature, we don’t have the same feeling about unknown phone calls. Our stomach turns a bit when we see “unknown caller” or just a random non-saved number displayed on our smartphone screen.
I’m pretty sure we all get curious in these kinds of moments and we really want to know who is behind the call.
This is where reverse phone lookup tools or services come in handy.
If you don’t already know what these are, keep reading and by the end of this article you will know how they work, where can you find one and all the features they are offering you. Let’s begin.
What are they?
Reverse phone search tools or services are websites on which you can create an account and then look up someone that called you or sent you a text.
Some websites require payment and others don’t. Usually, those that require payment will contain more accurate information in their database and will be overall higher quality. But, that might not be always the case.
What do they offer?
Some offer just a simple identity reveal, others are more advanced and they will give you everything connected to the person that is calling or texting your number. It depends on you what kind of service you’re going to choose, but it is probably better to get the one that displays the most information about the person.
Here’s a quick list of things you can do:
Avoid phone scams.
Phone scams gained a lot of popularity lately and they are used to manipulate and trick people into losing money or getting their information stolen if they answer a certain “scam” number or reply to a “scam” SMS.
Put an end to this by identifying the scammer through a reverse phone search service.
Protect your loved ones.
Use the service to identify who is texting your boyfriend, wife or child.
Maybe your significant other thinks they made a new trustworthy friend, but under that cover might be someone that can potentially be harmful to your relationship or even safety.
Also, almost every child nowadays has a smartphone. And kids are known to easily get tricked and fall for scams or even worse someone who wants to hurt them.
You can prevent all of this by identifying potential harm by looking up the number that called or sent them a text.
Find out if they use any social media or dating apps.
So you go at a bar and you meet a person, you end up talking and you start feeling that you like them. You end up getting their number and now you want to find out more about them. Search their number and see if they are using any dating apps or similar services and simply get to know them better. This way you can know what to expect from this person the next time you meet them.
