What Is Cyber Background Check and How Does It Work?

Cyber Background Check is a website ( that lets people on the internet carry out semi thorough research on individuals. It's an online people search tool that looks up and displays detailed information about people. However, these information are not meant to be used for FCRA purposes.

The tool is free and relatively thorough, and a simple search can bring up such details as a person's old and new addresses, social media accounts, old and new phone numbers, possible business assets, criminal records, family members, business partners, email addresses, known aliases, and a whole host of other information.

How Cyber Background Check Works

The Cyber Background Check software gets details about a person by aggregating and capturing data from official public records.

To search for information about a person on the platform, all you'll need to do is provide the person's first and last name, phone number, email address, and postal address, then paste them in the Cyber Background Checks search engine. To narrow down results and make your search more precise, you may provide other identifying details such as their city or state of residence.

Typographical errors, misspellings, and other human errors are, however, possible in public records. As a result, it's always a good idea to double-check information discovered on a website, especially if it's crucial to making a decision.

The best thing about Cyber Background Checks, apart from its level of detail, is its ease of use. The platform is great for reconnecting with relatives or friends with whom you've lost contact, or getting details about an unknown number that called you. Many people even take things a bit further, using the app to carry out background checks on employers and employees, and even tenants. Pertaining to that last part, the website does caution against using its services for Fair Credit Reporting Act (FCRA) purposes.

However, it's not all sunshine and roses with Cyber Background Checks and other sites like it. For one thing, if you're able to locate such detailed information about other people on the website, then you can be sure that such detailed information exists about you on the platform as well. There's no need to emphasize how much of a security risk that is. Fortunately, you can remove your details from Cyber Background Checks.

How To Opt Out Of Cyber Background Checks

If you don't want Cyber Background Checks to bring up your details during background checks, you can manually opt out of the system by following these simple steps:

Log on to the Cyber Background Checks website

Click "Do Not Sell My Personal Information" at the bottom of the page. You'll be taken to a screen where you can accept the site's terms and conditions.

After that, enter an email address in the box provided, verify the captcha, and click "start removal process."

Enter a first name, last name, and city or state of residence in the spaces provided and click "Search" to find the record you want to delete.

To view the details of a record, click on it in the search results. Then select "Remove my record" from the drop-down menu. You will receive a verification email in your inbox. To find the email, go to your email account and click the link within it. This link will take you to a confirmation page on the Cyber Background Checks website.

It would typically take about 72 hours for a record on the Cyber Background Checks website to be expunged. To verify that your details have been cleared, check back on the website after 72 hours. If you still find your information on the site after requesting its removal, you may have to consult the Cyber Background Checks customer service unit.
