The Power of an Advanced Public Records Search

While a simple Google search shows you the surface of who a person is, an advanced public records search – like SpyFly - shows a more detailed picture of a person and allows you to understand the criminal past of a new love interest, contact info of a lost family member and much more.

The typical attempt at learning more about a person usually involves searching any active social media accounts and checking various websites that show up from a Google search. These sites may provide some basic information about a person, but they do little to provide information about a person's background information and criminal history.

SpyFly solves this issue by giving you the ability to find court records, criminal records and other relevant information that go far beyond a basic Google search.

What an Advanced Public Records Search Reveals

An advanced public records search reveals detailed, relevant information on a person. Of course, some people will have more court records than others, but almost everyone has hidden details about their life that you did not know, be it a criminal past or a secret social media account from college.

The information that we provide includes but is not limited to the following:

  • Background reports
  • Criminal history
  • Address history
  • Contact information
  • Financial records
  • Social media accounts

What you can expect from SpyFly


A background report is a broad term that is used to describe a variety of information, some of which cannot be easily found through Google and social media. Along with some basic information, a background report includes financial history and legal and lifestyle data.


One of the main reasons for running a public records search is to see if a person has a criminal past. SpyFly lets you see arrests records, charges and even warrants of any person you believe is a potential threat to you or your family.


It is extremely frustrating when you want to reconnect with an old friend and can’t seem to get in contact. SpyFly can help with this by providing address history and contact information in every report.


Being able to get insight into a person’s financial well-being makes it easier for you to trust them before making big life decisions. Whether you want to know about any past bankruptcies or foreclosures a person has had, SpyFly can help.


More and more people are starting to use social media, making it a great way to get into contact with old friends, learn more about a new love interest and more. However, social media accounts are not always easy to find, especially if the person you are looking for has changed their name or moved to a new area you are not familiar with.


There are plenty of other useful pieces of information that SpyFly provides, including career details and lifestyle data.
