Pipl Search API Endpoint

There is a single endpoint for all Search API requests: https://api.pipl.com/search/



We require SSL, so change any URL prefix to HTTPS instead of HTTP.
HTTPS API Endpoint: https://api.pipl.com/search/

The API Endpoint accepts either one of:

  • GET request
  • POST request with Content-Type: application/x-www-form-urlencoded

Types of Searches

There are 3 different ways to make a search:

  1. A list of Search parameters
  2. A Person object
  3. A Search pointer

All parameters should be UTF-8 and URL Encoded.

Output is always in JSON format. See Response.

Minimum Requirements



The minimal requirement to run a search is to have at least one:

  • full name
  • email
  • phone
  • username
  • user_id
  • URL
  • a single valid US address (down to a house number)
  • vin

Pipl cannot search for a job title or location alone. We’re not a directory and cannot provide bulk lists of people. We specialize in identity resolution of single individuals.
