Researching people online, advanced internet search

Most Joe Does end up leaving some kind of tracks on the internet, a few months ago I posted about TinEye, an internet searcher that allows you to upload an image and it will match it with websites that are using the graphic in one shape or another .

I have now found a much better internet searcher for spying on other people’s life, it is called 123people.

I attempted to find all information on the internet about Jonathan Evans the current Director General of British Security Services, aka Mi5. The results have not been fantastic on this master trespasser of citizen’s privacy as he is probably well aware of the methods his lackeys use to spy on people, but you will get more lucky finding out your neigbours internet trail.

Only one problem, if someone has a very common surname you will get too many positives, but besides that, I highly recommend 123people for those in need of doing a background search on someone who may or may not be who he/she says he/she is.

If you are still posting your email and address on public forums it is about time you seriously thought about the consequences and how it can be used against you one day.


Although 123people is great, it is still advised you combine it with the power of Google Advanced Search, two Google links immensely overlooked:

Google Advanced Image Search

Google Advanced Seach

Note: 123People no longer exists, link erased!
