How Do I Access My Reports?
When using this service for the first time, you will be required to verify your identity with Backgroundreport.com. You must provide the service with your social security number, date of birth, and full name. They verify this information, and then ask questions to which only you should know the answer, based on the identifiers they provided (such as: in what county did you live in the year 1986?). If you answer the questions incorrectly, or if the information provided doesn't match (for example, if you said your name was John Smith, but verification of the social security number returned the name James Johnson), you will receive a message that tells you that they were unable to verify you using the online system, and to call or email backgroundreport.com they can assist you in completing the verification over the phone. This verification step is required before you can access the background reports that you have ordered.
