How to Perform a Reverse Image Search on Your Mobile Phone
Berify is a site that specializes in performing reverse image searches. Using this type of fine-tuned image search on mobile can help you find who you’re looking for online and protect your photography and images from being used without permission.
Commonly, reverse image searches are performed by marketing agencies, models, actors, attorneys, social media influencers, and more. This can help professionals trace who might be stealing their online photos and images, hurting their brand, or even (in the case of attorneys) find the evidence needed for the courtroom!
Even if you’re just someone who is active on social media sites like Instagram and Facebook and want to protect yourself from identity theft, catfish, or being used in deepfake fraud, then it is crucial to run occasional self-searches.
How to Quickly and Easily Run an Image Search on Mobile
Go to Berify.com:
Look for the “Browse or upload image here.”
After clicking on it, you are given the option of taking a new photograph or video, viewing your photo library, or browsing images. You can upload or drop pictures into the search browser.
Verify you are not a robot/bot and Berify will immediately perform your search. If you upload single images, results are available quickly (within minutes). Bulk photos take a little longer, and you will be emailed when the process is complete.
Decide if you want to see exact image matches only or similar images as well.
Your images are viewable when uploaded, and an alert will show that a search is in progress.
Additional Options: You can also try an experimental process of uploading images from a website gallery under “upload photos.” Or, you upload pictures from your computer (phone), Google Drive, and Dropbox.
Visit your Dashboard, and you can view the photographs you’ve uploaded, upload more, or edit photo settings or profile.
Add or edit “tags” to your search, to help specialize results.
Your results will give you the ability to scroll through exact and similar matches. Berify provides you with the ability to see the website’s URL before you click on it (for safety).
