In today’s time and age, the most convenient and commonly used means of communication is calling/texting them. And in order to do that, you must have their phone number. This is why, when new people meet and want to become friends, the first thing they do is exchange phone numbers so that they can stay in touch.
But how often do you exchange your email address with someone in the first or even third meeting? Well, unless you know this person professionally, we’re guessing that the chances of that happening are incredibly low.
So, have you ever needed the email address of someone and are wondering if their phone number can help you with it? Well, if you have, we’re here to help you out with it. Keep reading to learn all about how a phone number can be used to extract the email address of a person.
How to Search for Someone’s Email Address by Phone Number
Have you ever had to mail a friend you talk to all the time and suddenly remember that you’ve never exchanged mail addresses? Such a thing can be very inconvenient, especially if there’s something urgent that you need their email address for.
So, how will you overcome this challenge? Well, since we’re here to make your life easier, let us do our jobs. Given below are a few things you can do about it.
1. Have You Considered Asking Them?
The quickest and most convenient way of getting someone’s email address using their phone number is to simply call them up. We know it’s the most obvious solution, but we also understand how in moments of urgency, we often overlook the simplest way out.
So, if you have the phone number of this person and are trying to send them a mail, just give them a call asking for their mail address. The whole process will just take a couple of minutes and will save you a lot of trouble.
However, if this solution is not what you were looking for, don’t be upset just yet. We’re just getting started and have a lot more in store for you. Keep reading to explore what other alternatives you can use to get their email address.
2. Through Google or Other Search Engines
As most of you might already know, there are countless online directory websites that keep records of people’s email addresses alongside their phone numbers. So, if any of these contain information about this person, it will make your task much easier.
If you’ve used a directory before, you might have trouble figuring out how to do it now. To simplify it further, we’re listing the names of India’s top business listing sites that are free to use:
Now, you can easily go to any of these websites and search for this person’s email address by typing their contact number. If that doesn’t work or seems like a lot of work, you can try entering their phone number in the search bar of Google, or any other search engine, directly.
3. Email Finder Tool
Email finder tools have been devised to allow businesses to find the contact information of their target audience and approach them with the objective of marketing/advertising their goods or services.
However, many users employ these tools to run background checks on their potential employees, clients, partners, investors, and so on. It helps them ensure that this person is not a fraud and doesn’t pose a threat of any kind.
Some of these tools use the name of this person, their company, job title, location, or education to find their email address. However, it can be tricky to find a tool that can access the email address of a person by merely using their phone number.
4 Social Media Platforms
Many users add their contact details across different social media platforms. However, while they need to fill in these details in order to verify their account, they needn’t display it to everyone necessarily.
In other words, most users hide their contact details on social media platforms to avoid being contacted by a random stranger. So, just because you managed to find someone on Facebook or LinkedIn using their contact number doesn’t guarantee that you’ll find their email address listed there as well.
With all that being said, it doesn’t hurt to try, does it? So, you can open all social media platforms you use, find their profile there (if it exists), and check out their contact details to see if their email address has been provided or not.
Lastly, if none of these methods seem to be working for you, you’ll have to figure out other details of this person in order to access their email address. We’ll get to that later in our blog; for now, we’ll talk about finding your own email address. If this is something that has ever happened to you, you’ll find what we have to talk about in the next section very interesting. Let’s get to it.
Frequently Asked Questions
Q1. Can one phone number be linked to multiple email addresses?
Yes, one phone number can be linked to multiple email addresses. While the number of accounts might vary on different platforms, Gmail allows its users to make up to four accounts with the same phone number. It is because we understand that a user might need multiple accounts for multiple purposes, but it is unlikely that they have more than one phone number.
Q2. Can I use someone’s email address to find their contact number?
Finding someone’s contact number using their email address is very much like finding their email address using their contact number, which is what we’ve discussed throughout this blog. The best way to do this is by mailing them, asking for their contact number. If that doesn’t work, you can also use search engines, online directories, and social media platforms for it.
With this, we come to the end of our blog. Today, we’ve learned that while a person’s email address and phone number are both categorized under their contact details, one cannot fulfill the purpose of the other.
You can’t mail someone if you have only their contact number and not their email address, and vice versa.
