Broward County Criminal Lawyer Discusses iPhone App for Background Checks

leifertlaw January 15, 2010 General

These days it seems like there’s an iPhone for everything: finding local restaurants, calculating the distance to the nearest gas station, now there’s even an app for conducting background checks. BeenVerified is one such application that allows users to conduct background checks instantly via a mobile phone. The first three background checks per week are free, then users must pay $8 per month for unlimited access.

Some people say the app is a convenient way to do background checks on potential dates, employees, babysitters, and others.

But some people worry that applications like this could be a privacy infringement, particularly if someone has had their criminal record expunged and the information available on the app hasn’t caught up yet. As mobile apps and internet records become more sophisticated, our criminal defense lawyers anticipate that this issue will only become more important.
