Have you heard about the free app that will do background checks for you? It’s called Background Check , created by a service called  BeenVerified. This app was created quite awhile ago but it had been banned from Apple's App Store until now.

Background Check gives you one free search report each month. You can also purchase any Additional searches. 

You can run a background or email search on someone and then enter a little bit of information.  You can also just select people from your phone contacts list.

To run a background check, you provide a first and last name. The report will show you criminal records, property information, names of relatives and neighbors, as well as any alias names.

If you prefer to select the email search option you'll get an email address to view links to photos, videos, social networks or blogs connected with that address.

Background Check can be very handy for blind dates, prospective employees and more.  It’s said to be a fun app, perhaps a little seedy depending on how you use it. A thorough background check is still your best tool in important situations where another person’s character can make or break you.
