People are curious to know who views their profile in recent days. The demand for the feature is very high, and Facebook keeps declining it. Yes, Facebook has never officially come with a feature that will allow you to see who viewed your Facebook profile in recent days.
But that didn’t stop the curiosity of people, and some third-party companies have taken advantage of that. You will find many apps on Facebook that will offer you the info of who viewed your profile in the last few days.
There are ways to find out who is following you and keeping track of your activities, but one cannot be certain of a specific profile.
Let’s have a look at what feature is available on Facebook and what you can see.
Can I view the Profile list?
Well, the definite answer comes from the Facebook team, and they have posted a statement in their help section.
“No, Facebook does not let people track the list of profiles who views their profile. Third-party apps also don’t have this feature/functionality. If you see any such app, report them to the team.”
So, if you see any app stating that they can provide the functionality, you can report them. To report the app, you can follow these steps.
- Open the Facebook website and click on the menu icon and then select Settings.
- Now, select Apps and Websites from the left menu and then find any app by name.
- Now, select view and edit right next to the app name and then click on the Give Feedback link at the bottom of the page.
- Then, you would need to select the issue you want to report and then click on the Next button and click Done to complete the task.
Well, if you report these apps, there would be less filth on the platform, and you will save another user who might fall into their trap.
Why apps claim they can provide the list who viewed your profile
Well, the answer is simple because people are asking for it. Until you keep searching for this feature online, the scammers will keep creating these apps and keep fooling you.
And one more thing, never install any such app on your computer. This type of app does not work as intended because Facebook has not provided the authority to anyone to provide the list of who views your profile. When you use these types of apps, your privacy and security are at risk. When you sign in to your Facebook with these apps, you allow them to know your email ID and password, and they can do anything with it.
They create these apps:
- To gain access to personal data like name, country, preferences, and more to sell this information to advertising companies.
- And some of these apps will try to hack your account and change the password.
- To see your purchase history and then steal the credit card information or other sensitive data.
- Some apps come with a virus or malware that may infect your system and render it dead.
So, it would be best if you stopped searching ‘Who visited my Facebook’ or ‘who viewed my Facebook profile’ keywords on the search engines.
Who can see your information?
Well, Facebook has made sure that a person without access to a particular database isn’t allowed to view that information. But there are still plenty of ways to get the information you are looking for.
Facebook keeps a log all the activities you’ve done with a particular person. You can go that person’s profile and click on the three dots at the top right of the profile page and select the ‘See Friendship’ option. It will list all the common posts you’ve shared, or they’ve shared with you.
Well, you can change the settings of your posts from the public to friends and also go to privacy and tweak a few things.
Who viewed your Facebook Page?
Well, while you cannot see any information about who visited your personal profile, you can view the information on who viewed your Facebook page.
To view the information about your Facebook page, you can click on the Insights button from the top menu.
The overview page of insights will reveal a lot of information you want, such as the number of likes, followers, engagements, page views, and more. You also have a few options on the left menu, such as likes, reach, page previews, actions on-page, and page views. With insights, you will are able to see the demographics of the users who view your Facebook videos.
Well, there is no official way to get the information you are looking for. And it would be best if you did not try to do it with other third-party apps that intent to steal your information. Be aware of fraudulent apps and report them as soon as you discover them.
