How Do I Find Someone’s Address? 5 Simple Ways

Have you ever been curious about where someone lives? Maybe you need to find their house after you have lost their address. Another reason you might need to know how to find someone’s address is if you’re looking for long-lost family members or old friends or co-workers.

There are several ways to find a person’s address online. The method you need to use depends on a few factors, like whether you know any details about them (number, name, etc.) and if they’re already in your contact list.

Below are the best methods for finding someone’s address. Some of these techniques are totally free (try those first!); other methods with loads of features and high accuracy, will cost you.

TruePeopleSearch: Reverse Number, Name, or Email Lookup

By far, the easiest way to find someone’s address for free is with TruePeopleSearch. I’ve used this website for years to track people’s location with their phone number, but it’s also useful if all you have is a name or even an email address.

Here’s how to locate a person’s address with this website:

  1. Visit TruePeopleSearch.
  2. Fill out the Name Search, Phone Search, or Email Search field, depending on the information you have about this person.
  3. Select the search button to start searching for the person’s home address.
  4. Press View Details next to the person you’re interested in.

Google: Type Anything You Know About Them

I know it sounds too good to be true, but a simple web search using Google, or any other search engine, can yield lots of results about the person. Usually, this method will help you find sites like TruePeopleSearch where you can further your search, but other times you’ll see their address pop up right there on the search results page.

If you need to find an address from a name, give Google a shot, just don’t rely on the I’m Feeling Lucky tool or it’ll likely not work. Here’s what to do:

  1. Open Google and type the person’s name, surrounding all the text in quotes like this: “John Doe”.
  2. If you don’t see their address immediately, add some additional information like the city they’re from, again surrounded in quotes.
  3. Keep tacking on more details to your search, but do it slowly. The more you add, the fewer results you’ll see which is good, but that can also lower your chances of finding the person’s house.

Local Phone Directory: Find an Address Using a Name

You don’t need to dig around sites on the deep web to find someone’s home address because some cities provide this information for you through a digital phone book. This will be a hit-or-miss method for most people because not all locations or companies have this directory. Here’s how to check:

  1. Pull up a search engine like Google and type the following: [city] directory. Alternatively, research which phone companies are in the area you think they live and search for that phone company’s directory.

  2. Use the PDF that shows up, or the web-based list, to search for the person’s name. In some cases, this method even serves as a reverse phone lookup solution.
  3. You’ll see their address immediately.

BeenVerified: Get Someone’s New Address After They’ve Moved

Do you know their old address? You can find someone’s address using their old home address with a reverse lookup website. This works because public records typically include both past and current addresses, so you’re using their old information to surface the record that might include their new address. 

Here’s how this works with one of my favorite public record search sites. Please note that this website does cost, but there are often really good deals on a subscription, like $1 for a trial spin.

  1. Visit BeenVerified and select Address Lookup from the menu.
  2. Enter the old address into the box and press Search.

Social Networking: Search Facebook or LinkedIn

How can I look up someone’s address if I don’t know their city or name? It’s tough, but not impossible. People like to share stuff on Facebook, sometimes too much stuff. A simple search through all your friends’ posts can garner lots of information, including addresses. It’s not the best method, which is why I leave it last in the list, but it can be helpful if you’re lucky.

  1. Search the site for any information you have on the person. If you don’t have any clue what to write, just type address.
  2. If you’re on Facebook, change the Posts From filter to Your friends (or whatever is relevant to your search).
  3. Browse the results to find the address you’re looking for.
