About Instant Checkmate

By HighYa Research Team
Updated on: Jun 9, 2019

Billing themselves as “the most popular background check website on the internet,” Instant Checkmate is a popular online data broker that claims to provide useful and detailed information on “just about anyone,” including personal information such as addresses and phone numbers, as well as professional licenses, arrest records, and more.

In order to accomplish this, Instant Checkmate claims to aggregate public records from multiple local, state, and federal databases, and to compile this information into a simple, easy-to-read report that contains more than 30 different data points.

As such, Instant Checkmate claims to help you find what you’re looking for and to “help users learn the truth about the people in their lives.”

But is this really what you can expect from Instant Checkmate, and is the information contained in their reports worth your hard-earned money? We’ll answer all of your pressing questions in a moment in our review, but let’s first take a look at what you’ll pay to use Instant Checkmate.

Instant Checkmate Pricing & Refund Policy

For their services, Instant Checkmate charges the following:

  • 5-Day Trial Offer: $1
  • 1-Month Membership: $22.86 per month
  • 3-Month Membership: $14.86 per month ($44.58 total)
  • 6-Month Membership: $9.86 per month ($59.16 total)
  • Premium Reports: $19.99 each
  • PDF Fee: $1.99 (one-time fee only)

For each monthly membership plan, Instant Checkmate claims that you’ll be able to order an unlimited number of Standard reports, and will only need to pay for a Premium report (per individual) if you’re looking for additional information. We’ll come back around to this in a moment.

Important note: Other popular people search websites, such as SpyFly, BeenVerified, and Persopo offer prices that are equivalent to (or in some instances, lower than) Instant Checkmate. Because of this, be sure to check all your people search options before making a decision (HighYa is a great place to start!).

According to Instant Checkmate’s Terms, “Refunds are handled on a case-by-case basis with the ultimate goal of complete customer satisfaction.”

Instant Checkmate Phone Number, Contact Information and How to Cancel

With this said, in order to cancel your Instant Checkmate membership or to request a refund, you’ll need to contact customer service at 866-490-5980, email them at webcancellations@instantcheckmate.com, or submit an online form request.

Our Experience and Review of Instant Checkmate

Since writing our original Instant Checkmate review, around 527 HighYa readers have provided feedback about their experience with the company giving it an overall rating of 3.5 stars.

Common compliments included the ease of use and useful information.

However, some common consumer complaints revolved primarily around the amount and accuracy of the information contained in reports, in addition to the cost-to-value ratio of Instant Checkmate reports. In fact, these complaints are so prevalent that they’re precisely what we’ll focus on here.

In order to ensure the accuracy of our Instant Checkmate review, we recently spoke with a representative from the company, who gave us greater insight into their pricing model and what’s contained in their reports, as well as how these data aggregators work in general, which might help address some of your most common concerns.

Speaking of which, based on our research, here are the top online 2 customer complaints related to Instant Checkmate:

What Customers Are Saying About Instant Checkmate’s Information

By far the most common complaint (here on HighYa as well as elsewhere online) related to information found in Instant Checkmate’s reports. And from this, there were two different parts: 1) the amount and 2) the accuracy.

The Amount of Information Contained in Instant Checkmate’s Reports

First, most Instant Checkmate customer complaints claimed that much of the information contained in their reports can often be found on Whitepages.com for free, or through a quick online search.

However, keep in mind that not everything contained in an Instant Checkmate report can be found online (criminal records, as one example), for free or otherwise.

In other words, the company clearly states that they pull information from public records databases, meaning that much of this information is freely available to anyone with the time and motivation to gather it themselves.

Instead, Instant Checkmate claims that the value they provide is quickly gathering this information and putting it into an easy-to-read report.

The Accuracy of Instant Checkmate’s Information

According to online customer reviews, the second part of this equation relates to the accuracy of the information contained in Instant Checkmate’s reports.

Taking a look at the company’s website, they state:

“We spend hundreds of thousands of dollars to keep the information we provide as accurate and up-to-date as possible, so you know you can trust our data.”

“Our Standard Reports use two separate data sources that we cross reference to ensure accuracy.”

Note: The Instant Checkmate representative we spoke with also confirmed that they crosscheck their information with other databases.

With this said, it’s important to note that there’s a fine line between crosschecking information with a second database and verifying the accuracy of said information. Why?

Because if both databases have incorrect information (an address, for example), this “crosscheck” is simply verifying that one database matches another—not that the information is necessarily accurate.

With this said, crosschecking databases is an industry-wide best practice, and Instant Checkmate appears to be following the standard.

So if the information Instant Checkmate pulls from these databases isn’t correct, it would also be incorrect for any other people search companies who accessed the same databases.

What Customers Are Saying About the Cost and Content

Next, there are numerous online consumer reviews that reference confusion about:

How Much You’ll Need to Pay

If you browse through the primary sections of the Instant Checkmate website, you’ll notice that you won’t be readily presented with any pricing information—other than learning that a Premium report costs $19.99—until you actually run a person’s name through the system.

And considering that the Instant Checkmate website takes approximately 5 minutes to “load” (based on several test runs we completed) all the information about an individual (some online reviewers have claimed that this information should realistically be available in seconds), some might consider this a pretty big hassle.

Instant Checkmate also includes pricing information in their Terms of Use, which can be accessed from their website’s footer.

Outside of sitting through the lengthy report ordering process, this means each visitor to the Instant Checkmate website will be required to expend a lot of extra effort looking for basic pricing information.

And in our opinion, this may not provide the best user experience—but the information is technically there.

Even then, several customers have complained that it’s not made clear you’ll be up-charged (above and beyond the $20 monthly membership) for Premium reports, or that $1 trials automatically roll over to a monthly subscription, although we found this information to be fairly straightforward.

Important note: Keep in mind that although the verbiage on the Instant Checkmate website might lead you to believe otherwise, there is no guarantee that if you order a Premium report you’ll receive much more information, beyond what’s in the Standard report. However, regardless of what you do (or don’t) find, you’ll still be charged $20 (see next section for additional details). With this said, if the Premium report doesn’t end up containing much more information than a Standard report, it’s probably going to be very subjective as to whether or not you’ll find the additional $20 worthwhile.

When customers upgraded to a Premium report and felt they didn’t get their money’s worth, some claimed to have received a partial refund, while others claimed they weren’t successful at all, so it appears that Instant Checkmate’s customer service really does adhere to their “case-by-base” policy.

The Tangible Difference Between Standard and Premium Reports

In other words, despite reading through the entire Instant Checkmate website, you might still be fuzzy about exactly what you’ll get for your money, as well when you’ll need to order a Premium report. And from our perspective, we can see where customers are coming from.

To provide additional insight, here is some information taken directly from Instant Checkmate’s registration page:

Instant Checkmate’s registration pageMany online consumers have stated that Instant Checkmate doesn’t clearly differentiate between what’s contained in the Standard (or “full”) and Premium reports. However, the above 2 examples taken from the company’s Registration page should help clear things up.

So here’s the skinny: Based on our conversation with the company, Instant Checkmate reports contain the following:

  • Standard Reports (also referenced as “full” in some areas of the website) – First and last name, date of birth, phone numbers, current and last known addresses, persons living at the same address, census data, satellite imagery of properties, possible relatives, spouses, and marriage/divorce records, arrest and conviction records, traffic records, DUI arrests, FAA licenses, DEA licenses, and/or nearby sex offenders. You can click here for a sample report.

  • Premium Reports – All of the above, in addition to civil judgments, corporate affiliations, watercraft owned, UCC filings, properties owned, voter registration, old phone numbers and/or email addresses, tax liens, Florida accidents, professional licenses, hunting/fishing/weapons permits, foreclosures, date a SSN was issued, aircraft owned, neighbors, and/or business associates.

Important note: As we mentioned above, keep in mind that just because you have the ability to order a Premium report for an individual (and pay the associated $19.99), this doesn’t mean that Instant Checkmate will turn up much more information than what’s contained in the Standard report.

During our call with an Instant Checkmate representative, we ran several different Standard and Premium reports on different individuals, and found that the information they contained was relatively similar.

In addition, some of this information wasn’t completely correct, while other (presumably important) information, such as marriages certificates, was missing altogether.

Here are some of the details:

  • The Standard report showed property address and the title “homeowner” only, while the Premium added the loan amount and title company name.

  • The Premium report contained a list of people the individual lived with over the years, but did not contain a list of previous addresses.

  • The Premium report contained information about hunting and fishing licenses.

  • At the bottom of both the Standard and Premium reports Instant Checkmate listed social media information, but this was actually for someone else with the same name.

Based on the walk-through from the Instant Checkmate rep, as well as viewing the information each report contained firsthand, we can definitely draw our own conclusion (and opinion) about the value of Premium reports, and it’s this: From a consumer standpoint, we feel it’s a gamble as to whether or not you’re going to get you money’s worth when ordering a Premium Instant Checkmate report.

As we outlined above though, Instant Checkmate takes each refund request on a case-by-case basis, so if you decide to roll the dice and are dissatisfied, you can always call customer service and roll the dice again by asking for your money back.

Removing Your Personal Information from Instant Checkmate

The company's website is rather transparent on the steps needed to take in order to remove your personal information from the website. To do so, you'll need to search for yourself using your name on the website.

Once the results associated with your name are displayed, you will have the option to remove each record. That will be followed by a confirmation email sent your inbox which you'll have to agree to in order to finalize the removal initiation process.

The process of removing your personal data may take up to 48 hours after submission, according to the website.

It's important to note, however, that removing your data from Instant Checkmate simply removes it from their database but not from the general public database as they (and other third-party background check tools) collect from local, state, federal, and independent sources

In other words, your information will still be accessible by other third-party background checkers and aggregators. In that case, you will need to learn of each other company's unique process (if possible) on how to remove your information.

Bottom Line: Is Instant Checkmate the Right People Search for You?

Based on the volume of traffic they receive, there’s no doubt that Instant Checkmate is a well-known name within the online background check and people search industries.

As such, it stands to reason that their complaint volume might be higher than the competition. After all, the bigger the target, the more “hits” you’ll receive.

However, whether you’re reading them here on HighYa or elsewhere online, it seems that the vast majority of Instant Checkmate’s customer complaints repeatedly tell the same story, which we covered in this review.

And while we’re appreciative that the company took the time to walk us through their Standard and Premium reports—as well as to clarify what each includes—in addition to their easy-to-use interface, we can’t help but wonder why Instant Checkmate doesn’t display this much-needed information in easily accessible areas on their website, without requiring you to dig around or almost complete the ordering process beforehand.

Sure, the information is technically there and everything is disclosed, but based on our experience in using the Instant Checkmate site, you have to browse through the disclosures and disclaimers through the links located at the footer.

In our opinion, this might go a very long way toward further boosting their online customer reputation and entrenching their top ranking in the industry. Otherwise, it’s reasonable to believe that these misconceptions, which seem easy to clear up, could cause these same complaints to occur again and again.

So, where does this leave us? Ultimately, it comes down to your expectations. If you understand that a good chunk of the information found in Instant Checkmate’s reports can be found elsewhere for free with just a bit of time and effort, you might choose to perform the research on your own.

The good thing in our experience testing Instant Checkmate is that it really does do a good job compiling everything.

If Instant Checkmate does not provide everything that you would expect in a report, it's ultimately due to the fact that certain information is simply not available in particular county offices associated with particular incidents of the individual.

So whether it's Instant Checkmate or other similar services, some things are out of their reach.

It just so happens that certain information is sealed and not available for public display. In instances like this, services such as Instant Checkmate or other similar sites cannot retrieve it.

Most likely, to our understanding, a court order/subpoena would be required to obtain such classified information. We can't blame Instant Checkmate for that.

We certainly wouldn't want to say that the company intentionally and deceitfully did that. Although, each customer is entitled to their own opinion.

In addition, you save a substantial amount of time using Instant Checkmate to compile reports should there be a lot of information available versus having to perform a manual via Search Engine searches, contacting different services and courts, obtaining information from other third parties, etc.

Think of it this way: you have a grocery shopping list that contains chicken, milk, vegetables and some fruit. Imagine you have to go to four different markets all 5 miles apart from each other for each of the food groups. Pretty time consuming, right?

Now, for an additional convenience fee, wouldn't it be easier to just go to one nice big supermarket that contains everything you need? Get the picture? That's how we perceive Instant Checkmate.

In conclusion, if you understand that 1) the information you uncover through Instant Checkmate might be limited and/or incorrect, and as a result, 2) you may end up feeling that you didn’t get your money’s worth (especially if you’re looking for more information than was provided in the Standard report), then the time and effort they can potentially save you might be worthwhile.

Ultimately we think Instant Checkmate is a decent tool for the money, just as long as the consumer is educated that these people search websites work based on public information availability, as that would create realistic expectations.

Due to the brilliant design and marketing of Instant Checkmate, however, we can certainly understand why certain consumers get a bit frustrated.

Lastly, we think it's positive that the company allows for you to opt-out of their database so that your personal information isn't accessible by others searching for you on Instant Checkmate.

    • Wyoming,

    I saw an advert and just put myself for curiosity's sake. They either lie about their results or do a terrible job vetting as my name brought up places I never lived. Pretending they aren't required to follow FCRA makes it a fun game for them to lie about people with no consequences.

    I didn't order so I don't know if my report lists these lies but if it doesn't they are scamming into thinking reports have the information they do not. And if it is in the report they are scamming by lying in a report.

      Company Response from Instant Checkmate, Inc.

      We're really sorry to hear that you had a bad experience on our site. Our data is obtained from public records and various other records sources. We are always working with our data providers to get the best information possible, but as our Disclaimer states, there are some cases in which the information may not be 100% accurate. This is due to variables like clerical errors, slow processing times, and discrepancies between states over what is considered “public record.” There also exists the possibility of false positives, and more than one individual with the same name and basic information may match up with many other records.

      In addition to this, you are reminded to review our Terms of Use. Specifically, Instant Checkmate is NOT a Consumer Reporting Agency. Our service and the information we provide cannot be used to make decisions about consumer credit, employment, insurance, tenant screening, or any other purpose that would require FCRA compliance. Please contact us at 1-800-222-8985 or via support@instantcheckmate.com if you have any questions about this.

    Horrible predatory company

    • Florida,
    • Jul 24, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    Reading through these reviews, I see that I am not alone in my experience with not being able to get my personal information off of this website. I followed the opt-out instructions exactly but my information still shows up as a result on this website when I google my name. Yet when I go directly to the website and search my name, no results show up. I have even emailed their customer support at least 4 times with the link to my information and a screenshot asking them to remove it and I’ve gotten no response whatsoever. This company is clearly not following the laws for letting people opt their information off of their website. I was easily able to get my information off of every other website I found it on, except for Instant Checkmate. Their opt-out process is completely fraudulent! This is causing me a lot of stress. There are so many of us who have tried unsuccessfully to get our information off with no success, maybe a class action lawsuit is in order.

    Bait and switch

    • Verified Reviewer

    I purchased a reverse phone search with Instant Checkmate. I ran the search. Should wait, indicated that was a result from the search, that I have to pay an additional fee for a written report. I paid an additional fee and that I was informed, that no additional information was found. I would not have paid for this report if I knew that it does not have that information on the report. But they mislead me into paying for this report but still information does exist. But once it pays, it didn’t exist. This is known as fraud. They are not a truthful upfront company.

    Like the Eagles song, you can check out but you can never leave. Tried for months to opt out. They make it ridiculously difficult. I'd be afraid to sign up with them, then try to stop monthly payments. You have to go to a separate opt-out site, download a form, mail it to them, and they've told me twice they didn't get my letter. Right. Never found a site more difficult to unsubscribe to. I'd never go with them now.

    Extremely terrible service

    • Melbourne, Victoria, Australia,
    • Apr 16, 2019
    • Verified Reviewer

    Okay, so. I was getting calls from an unfamiliar international phone number located in the United States. I decided to sign up to this service because I didn't realize that EVERY SINGLE PIECE of information that I was given on the phone number that I searched was free on the white pages! I was given BARELY ANY information on it, I was told it was a Verizon service located in Oakland, CA. Not even given a current name for it (I was told by customer service over the phone it might be a prepaid number and that they aren't always available to see). I was then conned out of EVEN MORE MONEY to sign up for premium, I was told that if I did it might open up more avenues and databases for these goons to search through to get the info I wanted...big mistake, huge! It wasn't able to tell me much more at all, let alone anything useful!

    Then when I complained that it wasn't fair I should be charged for premium - the person I spoke with was so so so kindly spoken, and so apologetic.. BUT STILL WOULDN'T REFUND IT! I told them to cancel everything, I was assured that it was finalized.

    One month later, I'm not only charged the standard fee, but they still had the premium fee tacked onto it!! They also apparently had no note on file requesting that I requested to have it canceled so I was refused yet another refund...I was asked if I still had the email I sent them requesting the cancellation...NO, I DON'T HAVE IT, I spoke with someone on the phone, SHEESH! (I teeth had the bright idea to ask if someone could listen to the call recording from my prior conversation but I was told that wasn't possible because they don't record calls like that! What the heck!?)

    At any rate, I'm now told that it is definitely canceled this time and that if I get charged again it will definitely be refunded because they left an appropriate note this time! I won't hold my breath.

    People, heed my warning! These people are unscrupulous thieves! I'm almost positive that the 5-star reviews here for things like "I found out my ex was cheating through this service" are probably put there by Instant Checkmate.

    Fact is, I literally found the same information out for free on White Pages!

    DON'T waste your money! They sign you up and don't let you cancel and then refuse you the refund you should be entitled to!

      Hi Gem,

      I'm so sorry that you were unhappy with the information you received in your report and had a negative experience with Instant Checkmate support.

      We compile existing public records into one report, and sometimes the information we are provided isn't as thorough as we would like. However, I agree that you should have been refunded for this and would like to get that processed for you. I'm unable to locate your account with the information provided in this review, could you please send us an email to support@instantcheckmate.com or respond to this review with your full name and/or email address you used to sign up with so that we can assist?

      Sincerely,

      Hi Debra. We're sorry that you found inaccurate data on Instant Checkmate. We get our information from local county courthouses and census bureaus. This information is then uploaded to the database that we pull from. There is a possibility that some information may not show on a given individual because some state and local laws restrict us from accessing certain records which may not be considered “public” in that jurisdiction. But we don't change, amend, or add to public records. For more information on how public records work, please see the following page: https://www.instantcheckmate.com/glossary/public-records/.

    The background check we received helped our small business to evade a very bad situation of hiring a thief! It saved our business thousands in possible loss! It was thorough and great for the price. Will use again. Would highly recommend.

    Bottom Line: Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
