Running a scan

Use the scan command with the -n (or --number) option.

phoneinfoga scan -n "+1 (555) 444-1212"
phoneinfoga scan -n "+33 06 79368229"
phoneinfoga scan -n "33679368229"

Available scanners

  • Numverify
  • Google search
  • OVH

Numverify provide standard but useful informations such as number's country code, location, line type and carrier.

OVH is, besides being a web and cloud hosting company, a telecom provider with several VoIP numbers in Europe. Thanks to their API-key free REST API, we are able to tell if a number is owned by OVH Telecom or not.

Google search uses Google search engine and Google Dorks to search phone number's footprints everywhere on the web. It allows you to search for scam reports, social media profiles, documents and more. This scanner does only one thing: generating several Google search links from a given phone number. You then have to manually open them in your browser to see results. You may therefore have links that do not return any results.

Launch web client & REST API

Run the tool through a REST API with a web client. The API has been written in Go and web client in Vue.js.

phoneinfoga serve
phoneinfoga serve -p 8080 # default port is 5000

You should then be able to see the web client at http://localhost:<port>.

Run the REST API only

You can choose to only run the REST API without the web client :

phoneinfoga serve --no-client
