If you have a photo, icon, or avatar, do a TinEye or Google reverse image search. With these search engines you can look for all the pages that contain the image you are searching for.
If you have a photo, icon, or avatar, you can do a reverse image search.
For example, if you use your portrait for your Facebook profile, you can check that this picture hasn't been used in other web pages by looking for the URL of your icon. To find out what the URL of your icon is, right-click the image and click "Copy Image Location", then paste the URL in the search engine bar.

- For a Google reverse image search, go to [Google Images](https://images.google.com/) and click on the camera icon on the right end of the search bar, then paste the URL of the image in the search box.
A search enginge will find all the pages that contain the image you are searching for. There are different search engines that can help you with this. Here we provide you with some brief information about some of them. For a more in-depth comparison of their features and further details about how to use them, please refer to the Bellingcat [Guide To Using Reverse Image Search For Investigations](https://www.bellingcat.com/resources/how-tos/2019/12/26/guide-to-using-reverse-image-search-for-investigations/).
- [Google](https://images.google.com/)
Google is by far the most popular reverse image search engine – but its effectiveness depends on the search you are conducting. It may give you useful results for the most obviously stolen or popular images, but for more sophisticated research you might likely need to use more advanced search engines.
- [Yandex](https://yandex.ru/images/)
The Russian site Yandex is deemed as the most effective reverse image search engine currently available. In addition to looking for photographs that look similar to the one that has a face in it, Yandex will also look for other photographs of the same person – determined through matching facial similarities – which may have been taken with different lighting, background colors, and positions. While other – often more known – search engines like Google and Bing may just look for other photographs showing a person with similar clothes and general facial features, Yandex will search for those matches, and also other photographs of a facial match. If you need help with the Russian user interface, please refer to the Bellingcat [Guide To Using Reverse Image Search For Investigations](https://www.bellingcat.com/resources/how-tos/2019/12/26/guide-to-using-reverse-image-search-for-investigations/), which provides essential step-by-step instructions in English.
- [Bing](https://www.bing.com/images)
Bing’s "Visual Search" is very easy to use, and offers a few interesting features not found elsewhere. For example, it allows you to crop a photograph to focus on a specific element, and exclude from the search any other element which may not be relevant.
- [TinEyE](https://tineye.com/)
A fourth search engine that could also be used to do a reverse image search is TinEye, but this site specializes in intellectual property violations and specifically looks for exact duplicates of images.
