Another day, another scam. Facebook users got hit with yet another scam which claims to show users who have previewed their profile. The scam got visible on the Facebook page in form of an App, claiming to show users their profile viewers while the scam gets an access to your profile.
Millions of users have already accessed the App, in order to keep a check. Opening the Facebook page to check on the News Feed, my eyes paused on a link which seemed kind of appealing while on the same view of looking towards it as something fishy.
The message with a link post, read:
OMG OMG OMG…I cant believe this actually works! Now you really can see who viewed your profile!
We have seen millions of users already falling to prey with recent Facebook worm and now we see this as a never ending chapter. Of course when something gains popularity, this cruel world would never let it rest. After the scam earthed, Facebook was contacted immediately on which they commented:
No, Facebook does not provide the ability to track who is viewing your profile, or parts of your profile, such as your photos. Applications by outside developers cannot provide this functionality, either. Applications that claim to give you this ability will be removed from Facebook for violating policy
For those users who have accessed this App for some reason or the other, you need to get things straight before your profile is used as a worm. Follow the steps to remove the scam from your Facebook account:
Step 1: Login your Facebook Account
Step 2: Go to your Privacy Settings
Step 3: Look for the App in the Applications and Websites section
Step 4: Delete the App and Change your password immediately
