How To Create An Instant Checkmate Account

If you haven’t created an account with Instant Checkmate yet, it’s fast and easy. All you need is your name, a valid email address and either a credit/debit card or a PayPal account. Visit our registration page, choose your membership package, and immediately gain access to millions of public records. As a member of Instant Checkmate, you can perform as many background searches as you want for no extra cost.

Stay Logged In To Your Account

Underneath the login form, there is a checkbox labeled “Remember Me.” This can be a time-saving feature if you pull background reports frequently.

If you want to be automatically logged in the next time you use Instant Checkmate, check the box before you click “Login To Your Account.” As long as you use the same browser on the same computer, you’ll go straight to your dashboard without having to enter your email address and password again.

However, if you use your Instant Checkmate account on a public computer, or just want the additional security that comes from logging in every time, leave the box unchecked.
