A public background check is a search that provides public records data; the data includes information that is maintained in public records, and is accessible to the general public: marriage records, arrest records, court records, and more.
Public records are files and documents that contain data and pieces of information that are not confidential. In the United States, public records include both government records and personal records. Files that are expunged/sealed do not fall under this category.
Criminal records are records that contain an individual’s criminal history; unless the records are sealed, expunged, or belong to a minor, they will be available to the public. Criminal records contain data about crimes a person has committed, including misdemeanors, felonies, driving records, sex offenses, arrest records, and additional criminal information.
