Frequently Asked Questions

What is Skipease?

Skipease is a collection of the best people search engines; web searches and public records tools available online to locate a person; do background research or find other useful information. However, Skipease is not a data collector or aggregator; data broker; consumer reporting agency; credit reporting agency; or an employment screening service.

Where did you get the name Skipease?

The "skip" in Skipease comes from the phrase "skip trace" or "skip tracing" - lingo used by professional investigators to refer to the process involved in finding a person whose current whereabouts is unknown. The "ease" part of Skipease is for the ease with which people and public records can be found using the searches on our site.

Who uses your site?

Anyone can use the searches on our site. Skipease is used by everyone from professional investigators, attorneys and skip tracers to everyday people who are trying to find family, friends, coworkers, classmates or military buddies that they have lost contact with.

How can I remove my personal information from your site?

Since we are not a collector or broker of personal data, you cannot remove your information from our site. Skipease does not maintain any database(s) of personal records on people. We simply put you in touch with the best sites ( both government and commercial ) that provide various types of people search and public records data. If you find your information on any of the sites that we link to, you will need to contact those sites directly to see what Opt-Out policy they have for removing your information from their site(s).

Do you offer fee-based skip tracing services?

At this time we do not offer fee-for-locate skip tracing services. This may change in the future.

How can I contact you?

You can send comments, questions, suggestions or business inquiries to us by using our handy-dandy contact form.

How long has Skipease been around?

We have been on the web since August 1999. Many of the people and public record searches that can be found on Skipease today weren't even available when we first went online.
