Expectations for privacy have decreased as internet and social media use have increased, but sometimes websites take it too far.
True People Search has garnered negative attention for making personal information easily accessible on their site. It prompts you to search a name, and possibly a zip code, into a search bar. Based solely on those two pieces of information, you can find out that person’s age, phone numbers, current address, past address and relatives.
True People Search said in their “About” section that their mission was to help people find lost family and friends.
