An app that Apple previously yanked because of “privacy concerns,” Background Check boomeranged back to the iTunes Store last year and even came out in a new Android flavor. The app lets you run a background check on anyone using just their name or email address, and checks for relatives, property, current contact info, criminal history and social media records. You get one free report a month, but if that doesn’t cut it for you, you can purchase extra background checks for 99 cents each, or a pack of 20 for $9.99.
“Imagine sitting at the bar and finding out the truth about the person who just bought you a drink all before they return to the bathroom,” the app description reads. Yep, imagine a world where this service is completely free and available. Not at all creepy.
