SearchBug APIs and Data Integration

Take advantage of SearchBug APIs and integrate our searches into your own web site, application or a mobile app.

Use SearchBug APIs to identify phone line type and carrier, verify email address, find name from a phone number, find people email, phone and address, validate SSN, check criminal records, etc.

Phone + Name + Address + Email

Use these APIs to find missing contact information. These APIs are very flexible and allow various search options: find email from phone, find street address from email, find phone from street address, etc.

Investigate People

Need to go deeper than just contact information? Investigate People APIs allow you to check if a person has a criminal record, is on a watch list or deceased. Full address history, date of birth, and marital status are also available.

Verify Phone Number

Identify line type (landline, cell phone, VoIP) and carrier (AT&T, Verizion, etc.) for a phone number. Check if phone number is active and it has been ported to another carrier.

Verify Email, IP, ZIP

Check if email is deliverable, find location of an IP address, research ZIP codes and more.

How do I Get Access to the APIs?
  • To use an API you will need a SearchBug Business account. New customer accounts are activated by customer support the same or next business day after verification.
  • Our Standard Identify Phone Number API is based on monthly subscription. To learn more or subscribe, go to Verify Phone Number page. Select Subscription Plan on the left and click "Get It Now" to sign up and receive instructions.
  • All other APIs are paid per use and require a Prepaid Payment Plan.
    • The cost of each API is based on either a Query or a Hit (match) and the cost is deducted from the established Prepaid account balance. Review each API to the left for the associated cost, and, if the charge is per Hit (when information is found) or per Query.
    • Prepaid accounts are automatically recharged when your account is low on funds to avoid service interruption.
    • You can select any prepaid amount from $10 to $1,000. If you are just testing the system, we suggest starting with a $10 prepaid account. Your credit card will only be charged $10 and you can implement testing.
    • When you finish testing, we suggest you increase your prepaid amount to match your anticipated volume to avoid multiple small charges. Multiple small charges to the same vendor can often trigger your credit card company to decline charges which causes your service to be interrupted. We suggest you select a prepaid amount that will cover a least one month of search volume.
    • Note that Prepaid amounts never expire. Should you ever decide to stop using the service, you can simply request the account balance of unused funds be credited back to your card.
