How Does Reverse Email Address Lookup Work

By Daniela Getman on March 27, 2012

A reverse email lookup service can connect you with the person behind the email address. If you want to know who owns an email address, for whatever reason, whether investigating a potential eCommerce site, trying to find details on someone harassing you, or looking for more information on your customers, you can do this with a reverse email address lookup.
A lookup will scour the web to find the user's contact information, like name, phone number, and address, anywhere that it's published. Information is published in a number of places - from social networking sites to personal webpages. It's also available in large databases that lookup companies purchase from each other.

Is This Legal?
Yes, this is absolutely legal. The way this service works is by fetching information from searching your name or email on Google or other search engines and other sources such as the white pages and phone book directories. All this information is considered "public record", meaning that anyone has access to this information without having to pay for it. So, all the information comes from the public record, but instead of you doing spending days if not weeks of searching to find the information, the reverse email lookup service will do it all for you and present it in a very easy to read and easily understood format.

Can All Email Addresses Be Found?
No, not all email addresses can be found by a lookup service. The reason not everyone's address (or every address someone owns) can be found is that there must be enough identifying information associated with an email account in order to link it to its owner. For example, many people use "fake" email addresses opened with false or altered personal information, which will usually not be linked to the real user. Another reason an email might not be found is if it has not been in use for enough time or used enough for it to be registered in the database. However, many services do update constantly so that you can find most people's most used email addresses.

I Did A Search On Myself And There Was Nothing?
Although a reverse email lookup service will have hundreds of emails in the database, there are times where it can miss an email or two. If that happens and you want to include an email, you can contact the company's support team and let them know it's an email that they don't have and you would like to add it. You might also want to enter the name differently and see what comes up.

What Happens If I Don't Want To Be Traced?
That's easy. What a lot of people don't realize is that they can opt out of databases that contain their details. This means people can avoid 'cold calling' scenarios. To opt-out, look for an opt-out link around the site, particularly in the footer. Most reputable sites include a privacy policy that allows anyone to opt-out at any time. If you don't want to go through the trouble, simply stop using your old email, unassociated it from all of your accounts, and start using a new email that is not linked to your personal information.
As always, if you fear for your safety, your best bet is to contact the police. They can't remove your email from the databases, but they can investigate any harassment that might occur when someone uses a reverse email address lookup database to find your personal information from your email.
