What is ZabaSearch?

Zaba is a Greek word that means ‘Free’ or ‘at no cost’. is a website that was founded by Nick Matzorkis and Robert Zakari. This website looks for and gathers information regarding United States residents and the information includes name, present and past addresses, phone numbers, as well as birth years.

ZabaSearch doesn’t generate information and only accesses public information and then shows the information available in the public domain.

Most of the people have an interpretation about Zabasearch that it decides what information will show up in the search results, however, it is not true. It is only a search engine that helps in locating public records and retrieve the information already available there. The information made available by ZabaSearch is collected from a variety of sources such as phone listings, real property records, court records, subscriptions, etc. Also, sources vary from state to state and region to region. Several companies generate, gather, collect, and sell public information and this practice is common in the United States and is also legal there. 

So, ZabaSearch is just a popular tool that you can use for free to find information about people across the U.S., such as their names, addresses, phone numbers, and ages. is a better option if compared to white pages as the former has three times the number of residential listings than the latter one.
