What is PublicDataCheck?

PublicDataCheck is a public records and people search service that provides access to complete background checks. We provide you with the most recent and quality data available by aggregating billions of public records into a single, easy-to-use interface. PublicDataCheck also offers personal protection, monitoring, and email alert tools to keep you and your loved ones safe. PublicDataCheck is headquartered in Goleta, CA and has team members all over the United States. To learn more information about the detailed background reports, visit our Why PublicDataCheck? page.

How is PublicDataCheck different from the competition?

PublicDataCheck's mission is to provide users with easy access to public records and other important information. In the past, access to such information required waiting and was difficult to receive. PublicDataCheck makes it affordable and fast. Our service offers a 7-day trial opportunity, which allows you to test PublicDataCheck for a week before deciding to continue membership. We also provide monitoring and email alters based on areas you designate. PublicDataCheck is an intuitive website that was designed to make navigating between services easy.

How do I know my personal information is secure?

Our website uses 128-bit Secure Socket Layer (SSL). SSL encrypts your information during transmission processes and securely transfers your private and credit card information through cyberspace. The encryption prevents your information from being read.

Secure Transaction Indicators: If you are using a Firefox or Microsoft browser, you will see a small key or padlock in the bottom right corner of your browser window. The presence of the icon indicates that the transaction is secure. Another way you can tell when your credit card is unharmed is to identify the URL. An URL that begins with http:// is an indication that your personal information is being transmitted to a secure server.

PublicDataCheck Fees

What is the $1.00 trial fee for, and can I receive a refund?

This trial fee covers a 7-day, full-access trial. This provides the user with unlimited background checks for a full week, beginning from trial registration. No, the trial fee is nonrefundable.

How much does the PublicDataCheck service cost?

The service fee depends on the subscription plan you registered for. The 7-day trial cost is $1.00. Our monthly membership fee is less than $30.00 dollars per month. Members are charged directly after their 7-day trial period. If you decide to cancel before your trial period expires, no monthly charges will occur. Please visit our Terms of Use for complete details.

Will I get charged if I don't use the service?

Yes, your membership fees cover the costs of providing services to you. Whether you utilize the service or not, your account will be charged.

Note: PublicDataCheck features are implemented the second you set them up. For example, the monthly monitoring of Registered Sex Offenders occurs automatically once monitoring areas has been determined. This way you do not have to login into the website to receive recent sex offender information. PublicDataCheck will alert you if new sex offender activity has occurred in any of the four monitored areas you designated.

If the data you provide is "public record," why do I pay for it?

In the past, access to public records was difficult to attain. People had to endure the long process of visiting various government offices and local departments if they wanted to find information about someone's background. PublicDataCheck does the heavy duty work for you by aggregating various public records into concise background reports. PublicDataCheck members receive affordable, unlimited access to accurate and readily available public records. PublicDataCheck's intuitive and formulated technology for aggregating high-quality reports speeds up the procedure and eliminates the "waiting game."
