It is normal to suspect that other people view your Facebook profile because let’s face it, we also view other profiles on Facebook.
It seems like this curiosity can never be satisfied because it is a Facebook policy to ensure you can never know who viewed your profile.
Putting the policy aside, this article will teach you how you can get to know who viewed your profile on Facebook (shhhhhh!!! Don’t tell Mark Zuckerberg; it’s a secret between you and I).
Follow this article closely to learn how to know who visited your profile on Facebook and satisfy that curiousity inside you.
How To Check Who Visited Your Facebook Profile
Again, I’ll emphasize that there is no official way to know who visited your Facebook profile. The methods you are going to learn in this article are unofficial and not from Facebook but most work quite perfectly.
To check who visited your Facebook profile recently, you can use these three methods
1. Knowing who viewed your Facebook profile by using Chrome web browser extension
2. Knowing who viewed your Facebook profile by checking Facebook source code
3. Knowing who viewed your Facebook profile by using mobile apps
Knowing Who Viewed Your Facebook Profile Using Chrome Web Browser Extension
Chrome web browser extensions are programs that can be installed in your computer to change the way it functions.
A Chrome web browser extension you can use to know who visited your Facebook profile is the Social Profile View Chrome Extension.
Social Profile View Chrome Extension only works for PCs and it is recommended you use Google Chrome.
To use Social Profile View Chrome Extension to check who visited your Facebook profile, follow these steps
Open Google Chrome on your PC and search for Social Profile View Notification on Google here.
When your search results load, click on the Chrome extension suggested to you.
Next, add the extension to your Google Chrome browser.
You will be asked to confirm if you want to add the extension; click on “add extension” to confirm this.
Activate the extension.
Go to www.facebook.com to log in to your Facebook account with your Chrome browser.
When you are logged in, you will see a “visitors” tab at the top of your screen. Click on it and you will see who visited your Facebook profile recently.
Knowing Who Viewed Your Facebook Profile By Checking Facebook Source Code
You can also get to know who visited your Facebook profile by checking Facebook source code.
Like Chrome browser extension, this method only works for PCs and it is recommended you use either Google Chrome or Mozilla Firefox.
Here is how to know who visited your Facebook profile by checking Facebook source code
Log in to your Facebook account here using your browser.
When you log in, you will be taken to your Facebook homepage.
Right click on any part of the screen and select “view page source” or alternatively, press “Ctrl + U” on your keyboard if you are using Google Chrome.
Your Facebook timeline source code will then be opened in a new tab. When the tab is opened, press “Ctrl + F” on your keyboard and type “InitialChatFriendsList” in the search box.
Find the “InitialChatFriendsList” source code and the profiles under it.
With these profiles are 15-digit codes. These codes are the profile IDs of people who visited your Facebook account.
Since these profile IDs do not reveal who exactly visited your Facebook profile, you can get to know them by typing www.facebook.com/profile ID on your browser. For example, type www.facebook.com/985278295042546 for a person with profile ID 985278295042546.
Knowing Who Viewed Your Facebook Profile By Using Mobile Apps
Let’s face it, you most probably use your mobile phone to access your Facebook profile, so it would not hurt to also use it to know who visited your Facebook profile.
To satisfy you, some app developers have created mobile apps you can use to check who viewed your Facebook profile.
If you are an Android OS user, you can get apps used to check your Facebook profile’s visitors by searching “who visited my Facebook profile” on Google Playstore.
Also, if you are an IOS user, you can check your IOS store for apps like “Social Fan App”, “Manage Your Social Accounts” and “Who Engages With My Profile On Facebook”.
These apps might be paid apps and you need to be careful; some were just built to gain access to people’s Facebook accounts.
