Frequently Asked Questions

WeCircled is a people search engine that compiles public records from a constantly expanding base of data sources. Look up someone you know, and you might find arrest records, criminal convictions, driving-related offenses, addresses, phone numbers, birth dates, information from social media profiles, and even a list of nearby sex offenders.

WeCircled creates comprehensive background reports with information sourced from county, state, and federal databases. That means you can look up almost anyone in the United States!

Please note: We are NOT a Consumer Reporting Agency. It is prohibited to use our site for any purpose governed by the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA). Based on the FCRA, here's a list of ways you can and can't use WeCircled:

Yes! We are constantly expanding our database of sources to give you the most up-to-date and reliable reports. We're not a scam or ripoff, and we don't allow members to use WeCircled in any way that would violate the Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA).

Our information comes from a wide variety of public records, including social media profiles and federal, state, and local government agencies.

Our mission is plain and simple: to show you what details you could find about someone you know!

WeCircled compiles hundreds of millions of available public records from several different data sources. But we have to pay to access those sources. We also have to pay our expert developers to turn that data into background reports that are easy for you to read and understand.

So, while WeCircled isn't free, it's one of the most affordable, user-friendly people search engines out there!

The exact price depends on which membership package you buy. You can purchase unlimited people reports for a period of one or three months. Once that billing period is over, your plan will automatically renew unless you cancel your membership.

Once you create your account, you can sign in anytime at wecircled.com or through our mobile app. You just need two things: the email address you used to sign up and your password.

If you created your WeCircled account through Facebook, all you have to do is click the “Login with Facebook” button.

Once you’ve logged in, you can search for anyone with a name, phone number, email, or address. Select the type of search you’d like to make, enter the information, and press search.

Next, you’ll see a list of possible results. Click “open report,” and you’ll see all the information WeCircled has on that person, phone number, or address. The menu on the left side of the screen will take you to the details you really want to know about that person, or you can scroll through and see everything WeCircled has on them.

Your WeCircled membership gives you access to an unlimited number of standard reports. Standard reports can give you the basic information you’ll need to find family members, get in touch with an old friend, or learn more about your online date.

Here’s what you can find in a standard report:

  • Known aliases
  • Date of birth
  • Possible relatives
  • Contact information
  • Social media profiles

  • Educational information
  • Current and former roommates
  • Businesses and business associates
  • Voter registration details
