Would you swallow a stranger’s word–hook, line, and sinker? Common sense, of course, instructs you not to–but, at times, common sense just betrays even the best of us. There is a quick way–using your Android device–to verify the background of a new acquaintance, a newcomer to the team, or that friendly face you met on your way to the grocery this morning.

The Android app for that is called Background Check, which makes BeenVerified.com’s services accessible through your Android device. BeenVerified.com provides an online service for looking up public records about anyone. You can use the service to search for long-lost friends, or to check whether your new friend is a felon, or whether the cutie who has been the subject of your recent daydreams is still legally single.

A quick search on Google can probably give you instant information about a person, but according to BeenVerified.com, the background-checking service can provide more info that Google’s spiders can’t crawl on. BeenVerified also claims to frequently update and expand its database to ensure that reports are accurate and current. According to the site, close to 12 million background checks have been done so far using the service.

Background Check, the Android app for BeenVerified.com, is free to install and to use, but it will only allow you to do free “comprehensive” investigative work once a month. If you want an unlimited number of background checks on BeenVerified, you need to register and pay. The service also has pay-as-you-go options. You can get the app from the Android Market.

If you are thinking of trying this app, who would be the subject of your first investigation?

    every comment is right. What a rip off & a scam. How do you sleep at night? When put in you’re password it loads & the screen goes blank. Maybe someone should do a check on you!!!
