With its motto of “Bringing digital identity data together”, Whitepages has brought in different types of services. That is, Whitepages, which offers the users to search addresses and identify unknown callers and numbers. The user can either type the name, or number or address and sort the searches according to the age limit and states. Then, there is Whitepages Pro, which is a paid service and provides the largest database of contact information (name, address, mobile number/landline, age, and family members) of businesses and people. It provides a variety of features, for instance identity check, progressive reporting and technical support. Another service for the paid users is Whitepages Premium that offers complete information on the contact holder like mobile numbers, financial records, criminal records, and can be accessed only by the residents of the States.

People, who are concerned about their privacy, can even remove their contact information from this online directory, but after a proper process, which requires them to register their email ID. Whitepages has even developed certain mobile applications that work as a caller ID, available on iOSon androids alike, by showing the caller’s identity, their locations and conditions there, their recent social-media activities!
