Is BeenVerified legit?

BeenVerified appears to be legitimate, although there are some genuine concerns. For one, BeenVerified simply aggregates information that can be found online for free, puts the information into a report, and then charges you for the service.

How much is BeenVerified?

The BeenVerified price plans range from $26.89 per month to $17.48 per month.

Is BeenVerified.com a free service?

BeenVerified is not a free service and does not offer a free trial.

BeenVerfied states that you can run background checks through privacy-friendly public record searches, although according FCRA laws, BeenVerified is not a consumer reporting agency and thus cannot be used for employment or tenant screening.

Is BeenVerified safe to use?

Although there are many reviews citing incorrect information in reports and criminal records that did not match the intended profile, there has been no reporting of information theft or data breaches.

How do you cancel BeenVerified?

You can call BeenVerified's customer service at 1-888-579-5910 or email support@beenverified.com to initiate the cancellation process.

Are there any restrictions when using BeenVerified?

Yes. BeenVerifed may not be used to determine a person's eligibility for employment, insurance, credit, loans, education, housing, or similar as this is in violation of both the law and BeenVerified's Terms and Conditions. Users who contravene these rules may have their accounts terminated and/or reported to the relevant authorities.

Can I use BeenVerified to search for people from other countries?

No, BeenVerified's search records are only within the U.S.

Will the people I search for be notified by BeenVerified?

BeenVerified reports are confidential and the people that are searched will not receive any notification.
