ViewOnFB.com tracker (May 2013):
When testing ViewonFB.com we are asked to enter our Facebook ID and password even though we are already signed-in to Facebook. Close inspection of the URL and page reveals that it is actually a fake Facebook login page in the domain of viewonFB.com..
ViewonFB.com has all the hallmarks of a phishing scam because of the counterfeit Facebook login page asking for your Facebook login and password.
If you entered your Facebook password in an attempt to use ViewonFB.com we highly recommend that you change your Facebook password immediatly.
Spotifypremiums.com Facebookviewer 2013
Although as of January 2013, Spotifypremiums.com is no longer online, we were able to watch a Youtube video for it's FacebookViewer 2013. Facebook Viewer 2013 makes all the claims as all of the other scams and dangerous programs, yet we can find nothing to back up those claims. Facebookviewer2013 is a program that must be installed on your PC, and considering that it is from an 'untrusted' source, we highly recommend not installing it.
"Viewers" - "wow! its amazing now i can check my profile visitors click here --->>> http://bit.ly/xx <<<--- to check your profile visitors
On installation, "Viewers" asks for your permission to access your Basic Information, your birthday, your phones and the locations of you and your friends. The Viewers App also asks to access your news feed and make posts on your behalf.
Upon completion of installation, the Viewers App redirects you to a page at http://weather3327we.uni.me (located in Canada), and Viewers then redirects you to http://facebook-yearly-recentss-visitor.com which displays a fake "Profile Viewer" page (you can see this fake, static HTML page here: http://facebook-yearly-recentss-visitor.com/profilevisitor/wf.html - it shows the same for everyone except it pulls some personal Facebook info from your web browser to make it look more realistic) but requries you to fill out surveys to verify your account. Filling out these surveys makes money for the creaters of the app.

Funysnoop (funysnoop.in) : You get a message that says "I just noticed who keep watching my profile and photos. It was really shocking to know. Check who looks at your profile". When you attempt to install the tracker app it ends up sending you to a fake-profile viewer page that appears that it is about to load, BUT requires you to fill out surveys first as a "Security Check" - of course when you fill out the survey you make money for the scammer, and you never get any Facebook tracker
Verdict: In our opinion baseed on our research, the Funysnoop tracker is nothing more than a scam designed to force you to fill out surveys to make money for the creators
SCAM, just like all the others
http://www.1119999977u7.info redirects you to a spam/scam website - Some web-browsers will not even allow you to go to this site because of the potential danger - http://www.1119999977u7.info is a SCAM
fbviewcounter.info tricks you into pasting the following code into your web-browser while you are logged into Facebook:
Face.book Recent Visitors Tab aka Facebuk Recent Visitors tab
Facebook app link: http://www.facebook.com/iccwc11?sk=app_4949752878
The Face.book Recent Visitors tab app does not make any claims on Facebook that it will allow you to view who has looked at your profile. It does infer this by it's name, but the only claim we have found says "be unique". We also noted that the word Facebook is misspelled ("Face.book" and "Facebuk"). This makes us wonder if this is an attempt to stay out of the Facebook Police's radar.
"I Just Got to Know Who All VIew My Profile. Try It Yourself Here on http://www.facebook.com/iccwc2k11?sk=app_4949752878 "; "I Just Got to Know Who All VIew My Profile. Try It Yourself Here on http://www.facebook.com/iccwc11?sk=app_4949752878 ";
(note the poor grammar) The script also has code that is careful to avoid Facebook's "auto bot" detection so that it does not get shut down.
http://testernew.blogspot.com DOES claim to let you see who is viewing your profile:
So Many Stalkers Around who constantly Visit your Profile and keep a Spy On. So We Have Brought up this Application to Easily Know Who Visits Your Profile.To Know About It. You Need to Follow the Steps Given Below
Again, notice the poor grammar. Are you going to trust your profile & privacy to this??
The final step to get your Recent Visitors Tab is to complete surveys (to make money for the app creator) or view/click advertisements (to make money for the app creator).
Biggest Admirer aka Sneaky Admirer aka Top Admirer (and probably more, similar names)
Facebook app link: http://apps.facebook.com/lptrcbnr/, http://www.clicksredirect.com/admirer (and many others)
When you click on the Facebook App link you are redirected to http://www.redirectcity.com/admirer and may receive a warning from Facebook that the site may not be safe. You then land on a page with the following claim:
New technology analyzes your list of friends and determines the most probably secret admirer. Press Like and Allow to see who yours is...
If you read the claim carefully, it does not say it will track who views your Facebook profile. Instead it makes a vague claim about some "new technology" to find the "most probable" secret admirer. Someone not paying attention could easily assume that this may mean more than it actually says. Clicking "Find your secret admirer now" does two things:
1) it opens a new window with a survey. This survey is basically spam. When you fill it out, the maker of "Sneaky admirer" makes money
2) It takes you to the Facebook Apps permission page asking you to allow this app access to all of your information (name, picture, gender, friends), asking you to allow this app to make POSTS TO YOUR WALL, to access your family and relationships information and all of your friends information.
If you are crazy enough to allow the App permission to all of this information on your account, you are then presented with a pop-up like window that states you must take one of several "verification tests" to access the "good" area of their website. These tests are more spam surveys that make money for the good folks that make the "admirer" Facebook app. We could never get past this spam-page. The app also posts itself on your wall that says "I found out that my secret admirer is out there! Learn who yours is now-" with a link to the app to trick your friends into trying it.
Verdict: In our opinion, the Secret Admirer Facebook app is nothing more than a scam designed to force you to fill out surveys to make money for the creators.
See who viewed your Profile! (no real name)
Facebook app link: http://www.facebook.com/l.php?you=http://fview.co%2F&h=39946
Clicking the link takes you to a Facebook warning page indicating that you are leaving Facebook, and the website may not be safe. You are then redirected to: http://fview.co/ within nothing more than a banner that reads "See who viewed your profile!" and urging you to "Like" the page by clicking the "Like" button.
Upon 'liking' the App, you are then asked to "share" it with all your friends.
When you click "share", a window pops up giving you the opportunity to post a message to your wall about how great this app is, that so far, has not done a thing. You have the option to continue and "Share" it or "Skip".. If you skip the step you are returned to the share page with the message that you MUST share it on your wall to continue.
After spamming the app on your wall you are then taken to a page that forces you to fill out surveys to continue. By filling out the surveys, not only are you making money for the app developer, you are also agreeing to be contacted by the company, to receive promotional emails AND sms txt messages.
Verdict: In our opinion, the "See who viewed your Profile!" Facebook app is nothing more than a scam designed to force you to fill out surveys to make money for the creators.
See Who Viewed Your Profile
Facebook app link: http://www.facebook.com/apps/application.php?id=154255424630612, http://apps.facebook.com/damn_viewers
Verdict: "Damn_Viewers" like all the others above is just a scam to designed to force you to fill out surveys to make money for the creators.
IP Tracker System for Facebook by webnep.com.np: http://apps.facebook.com/iptrack/app.php?uid=1000065565118
IP Tracker System for Facebook automatically (without warning or your permission) installs a Java program on your computer and also appears to add some bits onto your Facebook profile (we have not yet fully analyzed this code). Once installed, it breaks secure (HTTPS) connections to your Facebook profile page - anyone with the secure HTTPS option enabled that views your Facebook page will get a scary warning that your page is not viewable via HTTPS, potentially scaring away legitimate visitors. It also appears that it tries to automatically install itself onto the computer of anyone viewing your Facebook page. Webnep.com.np who promotes this "tracker" is based in Nepal and we cannot vouch for it's legitimacy. Based on the way in which "IP Tracker system on Facebook" by webnep.com.np functions, we cannot recommend using it or even going near it. If you have viewied it's Facebook App page, chances are your computer has already been "infected" with it's unknown code without your permission.
Have you seen another Facebook app or website that claims to let you find out who has been looking at your page but are afraid to test it on your profile? Or have you found an app that really does let you see who has been looking at your Facebook profile? Post a comment here and we will test it, and publish the results!
