Who viewed your profile on Facebook? (Profile Peekers)


You’ve probably noticed, or at least heard about a Facebook app that pretend to be able to show whoever viewed your profile.
This application is no more than a SCAM, it will NOT show you who’s been viewing your profile…
This scam can appear in various names, such as:

  • creepy profile peekers,
  • catch them being creepy
  • creep exterminators
  • privacy bros,
  • we catch stalkers

If you’ll lunch this application, pressing Go to app, you will get the following screen:

You’ll have to allow access from the application so they can show you who’s been stalking around your profile, not before it’ll ask you to complete a survey in order to see the results…
These of course, are typical fake surveys.

  • For instance, there is particular survey that asks you to download SmileyCentral:
    ff8d221113615909b07b1ba9ceb8466a (SmileyCentralPFSetup2.3.78.2.NoSA.NoHP.ZNfox000.exe)
  •  A different one tempts to download Webfetti:
    9ed197b533fdf53ab8cf9e83a1b5951d (Webfetti.exe)
  •  Another one asks you fill in your phone number, and then it sends a costly SMS in order to unlock the application.

And it won’t settle for that… it will promote itself on (all of) your friends’ walls, as you can see below:


If you now remember you already saw these screens on your on profile… that’s that time to remove this application:

  • Look for the the post on your wall that contains the stalker application.
  • Hover it and you will see an X appear on its top right, then click on it and choose Remove .
  • Go to Account then choose Privacy Settings. at the bottom you’ll see Apps and Websites. Click on Edit your settings.
  • Find where it says: Apps you use, Click on Edit Settings (on the right of it), find the scam application and remove it by clicking the X on the right of it.

So you’d know…
Facebook’s policy does not allow to reveal who’s wondering around in your profile, so any attempt of such applications is necessarily a scam!
Please help the innocent users of Facebook by Report as abuse if you come across such cases…
