You cannot do pre-employment Background checks using an App

USA Mobile Drug Testing, in offering you a total pre-employment package with drug screening, also offers background checks thru VICTIC, a reputable company that follows legal guidelines. Recently the FTC Federal Trade Commission warned companies that the use of mobile apps to conduct background checks may violate the law. Background screening apps usually include criminal records, which bear on an individual’s character and general reputation and are typically used in employment and tenant screening. If you are using an app for one of those specific or related purposes, you are subject to consent requirements, releases, notification requirements, and a whole bunch of other hoops that regulators enforce protect consumers.

So before you reach for your iPhone to use that app, make sure you know your obligations under the law.
