Spokeo Introduces Advanced Search Filters

If you’re a regular Spokeo user, you’ve probably noticed that we’ve added some new bells and whistles to help you with your search needs — additional search filters to narrow down results!

Users can now filter with:

  • First Name
  • Middle Initial / Name
  • Last Name
  • Age Range
  • Street, City, State
  • Phone
  • Email
  • Relative’s First and/or Last Name
