Find social networks by phone number Other

When you need to find social networks by the phone number of a friend, they use all kinds of Internet resources, applications and databases. Finding the right profile using your account is easy enough. The only obstacle in the search for data may be the wanted person himself. If he does not show unnecessary activity on the network and protects the account with privacy settings, then it will be problematic to detect him. The user will have to spend time collecting personal information and searching for verified spyware.

Preparing to check registration on social networks by phone number

Before starting to search for a profile, the user must collect all the necessary information about the desired contact. First you need to write down the number in the phone book of a smartphone or other device from which data is being searched.

When synchronizing contacts in VK, OK, Facebook, Instagram, network algorithms find the required profile automatically. The search is available upon confirmation or identification of the user. A mobile number is used to register in any social network. If the subscriber has not limited the ability to search for a profile by phone, it will be possible to find his account in a few minutes.

The next preparation step is to select a site for contact testing. If you know in which of the social networks the subscriber is registered, it is enough to activate only synchronization. This feature is provided by most services for online communication. It is connected through the menu with social network settings.

If you do not have any information about the contact, you will need to narrow the search - to identify those accounts that are registered using the given number. To do this is quite simple. You need to open the authorization form, or rather, the option to reset the password. Next, enter the phone number in the column with the login and make a request to change the PIN code. If the social network recognizes the data (opens the confirmation tab), then the account is valid. You can start searching.

Instruction for Android

To find friends and acquaintances on an Android phone, just follow 2 steps.


  1. Add a phone to the address book.
  2. Register with the service through which you plan to search.

Basic methods and general rules for searching for a person in social networks

When checking a number in a particular service, both built-in tools (search string, buffer data exchange) and external features (browsers, programs, bots) are used.

Basic Rules:

  1. Synchronization of contacts gives a result if a person does not restrict access to a personal number.
  2. The search results of services are used to find active users offering any services or cooperation on the basis of advertising.
  3. External resources will help you find an account without the need to register (authorize) in the social network.
Search rules
Search results are used to find active users.

After analyzing the general rules, you need to build a strategy for searching the profile based on the data that is available.

Via personal account

To find a person by number, the contact is entered into the search bar. You can do this after logging in to the social network.


  1. Open the search page for VK, OK, Instagram or another social network.
  2. Specify a query containing a number in international format.
  3. View the output for the specified filter.

If a person left personal contacts for communication in the profile header or in one of the posts, the service will display the account in the list.

With the help of messengers

The easiest way to search is to find a given number in the bases of "common rooms". If a person does not hide contacts from strangers, it will be possible to find his profile in 1 minute.

With the help of messengers
With the help of messengers it is very easy to find a person.


  1. Save the contact to your phone.
  2. Open messenger Viber, WhatsApp or Telegram.
  3. Check if an account exists for the given number (synced contacts tab).
  4. Go to your profile by clicking on the round avatar icon. Zoom in.
  5. Take a screenshot. Trim the edges, leaving only the original photo.
  6. Use the image search in the browser or a specialized service (Search4faces, Findclone, etc.).

The issuance of the site will display all pages where this photo is present, as well as links to similar pictures.

Through the search engines "Yandex" and "Google"

Using search engines is a common way to find accounts. Many users leave contact details for communication, forgetting to hide them with privacy settings. The chance of finding a match by number is quite high.

Enter a number in the search bar, add the name of the social network and check the results on request. In order for machine algorithms to find an exact match, the browser includes the appropriate advanced search filter.

"Yandex" is used in the first place, because. the service is aimed at the Russian-speaking population and ranks the pages of VK and OK users. Google can be useful when checking accounts registered in foreign social networks Twitter, Instagram, Facebook. To optimize the query, the words “profile”, “profile”, “dating”, “sell”, etc. are entered into the search bar, depending on what the intended person is doing. Such a request will help you find the profile page, find out your full name, history of activity on the network.

Alternative search methods

It is possible to find a person without data synchronization. If the user maintains anonymity on the network, spyware comes to the rescue. The generated data array is received legally, tk. users themselves merge contacts on the Internet. Programs only collect information into a single database.

Verified Services Functionality
true caller Issues full name, photo, mail address, name of mobile operator and region
RusFinder Searches for accounts by last name and first name, filter by city of residence is available
Telegram bots @howtofindbot and @smart_searchbot Looks for the ID of any social networks, additional information about the subscriber

If the search did not yield any results, you should contact a specialist - a private detective with a license. The price tag for the service is 1500-3000 rubles. At the same time, the user can be sure that the order will be completed on time with a guarantee.

Prohibited Services

There are many sites on the network offering to find any information about the right person. Services are created by hackers illegally leaking stolen data. Cooperation with such structures falls into the field of view of special services.

There is another category of fraudulent sites that extort money for a non-existent service. They mislead the victim by offering to use demo access, while simultaneously collecting a database for the client. The requirement to fill out a questionnaire with payment details is their distinguishing feature. Before turning to such sites for help, you should not only read reviews from the Internet, but also check the domain against blacklists of scammers.

Through a mobile operator

Search for accounts through providers is not available. The only thing that can be found in the databases "merged" into the network is the full name. and connection region. But even in this case, the reliability of the data remains in question. Information quickly becomes outdated, because. subscribers often change numbers.

Social networks are searched by phone number in 4 ways: through a personal account, messenger, browser or special tracking programs. The choice of the optimal option depends on the tasks and capabilities of the user.

    Good article. But this is about a head-on search. Sometimes it is useful to play a little detective and turn to friends and acquaintances for the necessary information. By the way, dating sites can sometimes help.

    At 21, sync is in the app section, and the sync section looks different.
    And after synchronization, 100 contacts come out, although in fact there are many more contacts tied to VK, so when updating synchronization, contacts can alternate, adding existing ones but not issued the previous time, and therefore it will be very, very problematic to calculate that added new contact.

  6. Ilya: - write, we will help

    Helped me here, thanks.

    Пользовался подобными сервисами ради интереса. С помощью бесплатных так ничего и не нашел, а для платных денег жалко и скептически отношусь к подобным сервисам.
