Access to Information
Garbo is a new kind of background check designed to help proactively prevent gender-based violence in the digital age.
Garbo's new consumer online background check platform works with the limited information people have before an online date or rideshare, while diving deeper than ever into crime reporting.
No Last Names Required
In most cases, all you need to search is just a first name and phone number.
We’re aggregating dozens of data sources to provide the most comprehensive view into someone’s history including arrests, convictions, orders of protection, and more.
We Accept Your Evidence
One of Garbo’s data sources is you. Anyone will be able to submit their evidence including police reports, orders of protection and more.
