Everybody wants to keep track of the persons that are looking at their profiles but that’s what these parasites are also looking for so that they can manipulate you and steal your data. So, let’s see what you should not do in desperation to look for the stalkers.
- Third-party apps:
The first and foremost will be to not use any third-party app. Facebook doesn’t like letting people know these things. There may be various reasons for not allowing users to know these details but certainly, it can chaos for their business.

These blogs/vlogs claim that by viewing your profile Page source and searching for a term (InitialChatFriendslist), you will be able to see who viewed your profile. If it was that easy, Facebook would’ve directly provided you the option to do it. So, all these claims are nothing but bogus and you should not waste your time even trying it.
- The official way to see who viewed your profile:
You will come across many blogs that say Facebook has officially provided the option to see who viewed your profile. These claims are a total bust and you will not find any such option even if you waste your time looking all day for it. You will also notice all these blogs have the same images suggesting it is a customized image made only for distracting you.
There is no such option available on the Facebook app or desktop version of it.
Even Facebook has officially stated that there are no such hidden or clear methods, tricks, or hacks that can let you see who viewed your profile. Now, you have learned what to do and what not to do when you are looking for people who viewed your profile.
