Find By Owner Phone Number
How can I find out the name and surname of the owner by cell phone number and is it even possible to do this?
Theoretically, such an opportunity is provided by the operator himself, in addition, now there are a lot of services that own the database of numbers.
1. Official statement
All information about mobile subscribers is confidential, and employees cannot disclose it to third parties.
However, each person can apply to law enforcement agencies and demand to “break through” the number.
You need to prove that there is an important circumstance (threats, fraud, other criminal and administrative offenses), because of which you need to identify the owner of the cell phone.
Law enforcement agencies are required to make a request to the telecom operator, as a result of which you will be provided with the following information:
- Name of the owner of the number;
- Home address (last officially registered in the country);
- Date of Birth.
The request can be processed within a month, and organizing it is quite difficult.
If you need to quickly determine the owner of the number, it is better to use the methods that are available online.

Other social networks work in the same way, and the principle of action is the same everywhere.
In the life of each of us, sometimes situations arise when we need to get more information about a person. There are many reasons for this, but mainly, such information is required to protect yourself from fraudsters and ill-wishers. For this purpose, a mobile phone number is suitable, with the help of which on the Internet you can get additional information about a person.
Identify by mobile number using Facebook
Starting a legal search for open and accessible information about the subscriber whose telephone number we have is on the Internet. Many accounts on social networks are now tied to a mobile number, so just enter it in the users search bar. We recommend starting with Facebook. But if the person we want to learn more about was registered several years ago, most likely this method will not produce results.
Identify with messengers
Save the number on your phone under any convenient name. Go to Viber or Telegram and use the contact list to find the account you need. Often the user adds a photo or even indicates the name and surname.
Identify caller using Google
If this method has not yielded results, we turn to Google for help. Enter the phone number in the search box. Click on the links found. We are studying information about possible ads, indicating the desired phone number. We pay special attention to various classified sites and job search sites. As a rule, they contain information on the type of human activity, and even the address is indicated in the summary.
We structure all the information obtained by keywords and enter it into the search engine search line again. We carefully study the new found links. Summarize the information. We formulate a new request and search the Internet.
Identify the caller using all social networks
We go to all known social networks. Twitter, Facebook, Odnoklassniki, Vkontakte, LiveJournal and others. Using the information accumulated after searching the Internet, we are looking for a user who matches these parameters. We determine the circle of interests and acquaintances. We look through them until we determine the name and surname of the wanted person.
We carefully study the photos posted by users matching the search. We pay attention to signatures, determining the shooting dates and the circle of participants. We generalize the information obtained in an accessible (legal) way, and, absolutely free of charge.
Identify using smartphone apps
To search for information, you can also use one of the functions of several dialers (dialers) with a predictive dialer. Simply put, such applications automatically search for the number you need during dialing or determine the caller.
For example, Truecaller. If you ask someone about which third-party dialer he recommends, you will probably hear Truecaller in response. The application is really very popular.
First of all, Truecaller is a social dialer and at the first start it will request your data in Google or Facebook. It is on these data that the principle of the application’s operation is based. Users themselves provide information about themselves. On Facebook and Google, many have publicly available phone numbers and Truecaller finds them successfully. At the first start, the program will analyze your call history and instead of unknown numbers, contact data will begin to be reflected. Truecaller is almost 100% likely to find the phone number of any person.
If you need to find the organization by phone number, use the Phone application. This nondescript name hides a program from Google. The application uses the powerful Google Maps database to predict phone numbers when dialing or when receiving calls. Just enter the company name and the application will find the desired number. Call reception works similarly. During a call, Google pulls up information about the caller: organization name, opening hours, address. And displays it on the screen. Any contact or call can be blocked locally or report spam.
With due dexterity and attentiveness, you can also determine. This demonstrates, by mobile phone number, the location and geolocation of the owner.
Search for a person by mobile number, instruction:. Important!
You should avoid various offers on the Internet, offering for a minimum fee to provide all the information about the subscriber by mobile phone number, since they are all fraudulent. You should also not get involved in offers to buy a database of all mobile subscribers, since such information is considered closed, and its illegal distribution is punishable.
