iTunes App Rating*

We examined the most popular people search sites to determine which one provides the best results and experiences.

BeenVerified and Instant Checkmate have three key differences: how long it takes to load your background report, pricing, and customer satisfaction.

While neither report is provided instantly like Whitepages or Intelius, BeenVerified generally provides a faster search than Instant Checkmate. BeenVerified can provide a background report in roughly four minutes while Instant Checkmate can take up to 12 minutes. Instant Checkmate also requires the user to consistently click buttons on the screen "verifying information" about the search. Maybe this is a sales tactic, to keep the user on the site as long as possible before making a purchase.

When comparing pricing, BeenVerified has a better price point than Instant Checkmate. While neither company offers the availability of one-off searches, BeenVerified's monthly payment is $26.89* whereas Instant Checkmate's is $34.78*. Along with a better price point, Been Verified offers the reassurance of a customer satisfaction guarantee, so if at anytime you're not satisfied with your purchase, they will refund you*.

If a positive mobile experience is important, take note that Instant Checkmate does not currently have a mobile application in iTunes*. BeenVerified, however, does have a mobile app, but the reviews in the iTunes app store are overwhelmingly negative*. Neither company seems to provide a great mobile experience.

All in all, with BeenVerified's quicker generation of reports, affordability, and customer satisfaction guarantee, we think their service is better than Instant Checkmate's.
