How to Find Hidden Profiles on Social Networks
Are you looking for hidden online profiles? While it would be helpful if social network profiles were always easy to find, that often isn’t the case. Many times, children, friends, romantic partners, catfish, potential dates, or long lost lovers have secret hidden profiles. The reasons for this are varied.
Children might use social profiles for gaming and not want their parents to know. Teenagers might use secret accounts to post content they don’t want their family to see or for online dating, where they lie about their age. Cheaters often create separate profiles and, in some cases, different identities or families.
Catfish trick others by pretending to be someone they are not, and generate fake online relationships and connections. In romantic relationships (past or present) names may be changed or nicknames used, which can make an account more difficult to discover. Using search tools, you can find whom you are looking for.

Search by Username
Consider usernames that the person has used before. If they frequently use a particular @username on one site, they might use the same username on various platforms; even if you can’t find them through traditional search engines, Social Catfish might be able to.
Search ALL Sites
Even when someone can’t be found on sites like Twitter, Facebook, or Instagram, they may still use sites such as LinkedIn for business networking or social sites like Meetup, and art sites such as DeviantArt. Explore all platforms!
Search Through Their Friends
If you know any of their friend’s or relative’s names, search them out as well. Once you find someone they know, look on that person’s friend’s list or follower list for anyone who has the photo, full name, first name, or nickname of who you’re looking for.
Search by Job
