How to get identity of people on google search

Reverse Email Lookup :

Tell me if this has happened to you. You receive an email from someone, and you cannot figure out the sender’s identity. They may be an old friend, a relative, a colleague, or just an acquaintance. The email doesn’t contain enough information to identify the sender, and it feels rude to ask them. This is a situation that most of us have experienced in our lives, at least once. Well, with reverse email lookup services, you can easily solve this problem. They can help you dig information about the sender using just their email. So, if you want to save yourself from such embarrassing situations, read to find out how to find an email sender’s identity and location using reverse email lookup in 2020.

1. Do a Simple Google Search

Google Search has become a powerhouse of a search engine, and there is almost nothing that it cannot find. If you want to find the user behind an email address, the first thing you should do is search for it on Google. Google will extract and reveal any information that it can find on that account. Since most of the free email users use Gmail as their email service provider, Google can provide you with their information. It can track any social media account linked to that email, find out their LinkedIn profiles, and more. It’s the easiest way to find out information about an email account. And if Google doesn’t work, you can try out some of its alternative search engines that can get the job done.

1. Google Search

2. Reverse Email Search on Facebook and Other Social Media Websites

Seeing how people happily share their personal information on Facebook, it is the best place to find information on people. Facebook’s search box allows you to search for people using their email ID. Copy and paste the email ID in Facebook’s search window and hit the search button. If a sender is using the same email ID for their Facebook account, their name will appear in the search result. You can check out the sender’s photos and basic information. However, there is one drawback to this method. Since Facebook’s privacy setting allows users to disallow people from searching for them using email ID, you might not get a result.


Still, it’s an easy and free method to start your search from. Similar to Facebook, other social media sites like LinkedIn, Instagram, and Twitter also allow you to search for people using their email ID. Chances are most of the times you will find the sender’s details using at least one of these social media platforms. You can also use a website like Lullar which automatically searches for your query on multiple social media platforms at once.

3. Using Email Clients that Automatically Extract Sender Information

Probably the best way to keep track of all the emails that you are receiving and the persons who are sending them is by using a dedicated email client that automatically extracts the sender’s information and displays it right beside the email. Since I am using a Mac, my favorite email client that does it is Polymail (free trial, $13/month/user). Polymail is perfect for me for many reasons, but today, I am mentioning it here because it is the best email client for extracting and displaying the sender’s information. You don’t have to go anywhere to perform a complex search. All the information that you need is right there. Take a look at the picture below to see how Polymail displays sender information.

For Windows users, Polymail is currently in development. You can register here to join the wait-list to get early access to its Windows release. If you want Polymail’s functionality on Windows right now, you can check out MailBird (free trial, $19.5/year). It’s not as functional as Polymail but it has some of its functionalities. For example, MailBird allows you to directly look up emails on LinkedIn to find information on its sender. Again, MailBird might not be as feature rich as Polymail, but it’s still better than having nothing at all.

4 Use Reverse Email Search Engines

If the above four methods do not work and you still don’t want to ask the sender who they are, you have one last resort to find their identity. There are various reverse email search or reverse people search engines which allows you to find out the information about someone by just using their email address. However, one drawback with using reverse email search engine is that generally they are paid. That being said, over the past few years, many free people search engines have cropped up and they work great. You can check out our full list of email or people search engines by clicking on the link. The services mentioned on this list include Pipl, BeenVerified, Spokeo, and more. All of them employ different search parameters hence the results will vary depending on the service you are using.

5. Reverse People Look

Use Reverse Email Lookup to Extract Sender’s Details

The above five methods should give you the required information, unless and until the sender is using a fake email address. In that case, no search or lookup service can tell you any information about the sender. However, considering most of the people will be using these services just to get a little more information about the sender, who in most cases will be a real person, these methods will help them figure out the required information. Try these methods and let us know if this worked out for you or not by dropping them in the comments section below.
