A reverse image search is one of the best ways to verify who you’re talking to online. If you’re not a doing reverse image search on the picture of the person you’re about to meet out for coffee (in public! please!), read on to find out how you can reverse image search images that people send you.
Two things: One – this CreepFace site no longer exists (boooooo!) and Two – you should be leaving it to us professionals to do an entire search of your new friend that includes finding their last name, sex offender status, social media sites, marital status, and all the red flags you need to know. Because we’re the professionals and we know what we’re doing.
But for a quick and easy way just to confirm the photo they gave you – this is how you can do an immediate reverse image search and come to us for the rest of it.
TINEYE REVERSE IMAGE SEARCH
TinEye was the first website to ever use image identification technology! I actually find that TineEye can find similar images more often than not over their competitors so I always use this one first and then use at least two more sources when reverse image searching to get all the details on a photo that I need. I used to work for an Artificial Intelligence Company named indico that did AMAZING things with machine learning and data and image recognition so I actually know how cool this new technology and machine learning is. It’s incredible how far we’ve come. As of today (6/29/18), TinEye boasted 29.2 billion indexed images (up from 14.7 billion in 2016). Holy crap that’s a lot of images.
So what do you do? Head to TinEye and it’s seriously just this easy:
Google Image Search
Also known as the reverse image search that most people use.
If you’re on a PC, head here: https://images.google.com/
And if you’re reading this on your phone, head here: https://reverse.photos/
So while I’m on my desktop, I like to quickly right click on an image and google search it if I’m just semi-curious about an image. When you right click, you’ll see this pop up if you’re using Google Chrome
Instantly you’ll come up with the image search of everything having to do with said picture, like this:
That hot guy you’ve been talking to on Tinder? Yeah, that’s Ryan Gosling. Man I wish I was talking to the real Ryan Gosling… he’s so dreamy.
There are sites out there that charge you to do a reverse image search, but use one of these two sites I just talked about and save your money. This is easy. On a side note: Sometimes you want more info on the picture, like where the pic was taken, when the pic was taken, etc. and for that, you can ask us to find the metadata off pictures that your new friend sent you to make sure they’re not stolen photos or they’re not lying about who they say they are. I’ve seen those photos where you ask them to write a number on a piece of paper and they do – BUT – upon looking into the image, it’s from years ago and they photoshopped it on. People are pretty brutal these days.
Speaking of your new match, our entire business is in keeping you safe in your search for love. So before you step one foot out that door to meet your new friend, make sure you’ve checked out all of their Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, Amazon Wishlist, Pinterest, (etc.) accounts looking for red flags. And if you don’t know how to or don’t have time to, you should leave it to us professionals. We’ll track down someones entire electronic footprint and give you a detailed report including red flags for only $29.99. For the price of the first round of drinks? I’d say that’s worth some peace of mind.
