A while ago MakeUseOf profiled Felonspy, a website we believed that aimed to help people find convicted felons residing in the neighborhood areas. After a number of comments it became clear that the website was bogus and full of crap.

This time we would like to introduce to you Family Watchdog: a national sex offender registry where you can search for nearby sex offenders and get a map view of their adresses.

Important: Harassing anyone on the offender registry database is a misdemeanor and can be punished both by a fine and jail time.

Family Watchdog


  • Lookup sex offenders by name or search by location (US only).
  • Get map view of registered nearby offenders, see their photos, distance from your zipcode, exact addresses and conviction details.
  • Get a free email or text alerts when an offender moves near you.
  • Accessible from any web-enabled mobile phone.
  • Read safety tips for parents and children.
  • Coming soon: Receive alert notifications on your voicemail when an offender moves near you.
  • For more information and questions go to service FAQ section here.

    The better educated we are the more effective we become. Remember, there are two sides to every coin.
