Using Hideinthesky website to see if there is a tracker PLEASE HELP

Hello

I was wondering if someone has a private profile and I have entered their friend ID on that website and hit check for trackers is it really accurate? I know that they say some trackers can be in the headlines so it(the website) would find it right? I could not tell by the FAQ if he meant he CAN find them in the headline or he could NOT.

If it (the tracker) is only IN the profile (private) there is no way that I have to worry about being tracked right? The only thing it could be is in their profile if that hideinthesky.com/ms/ did not find it? Please help. Thanks a lot!

I just ran my friend ID # through it, I have a private profile and a tracker, and it says I don't have a tracker. Hope that helps!

(edit) forgot to mention, I have my tracker code in my profile, NOT in my headline.  I don't know if the tracker would show on hideinthesky if they have the code in the headline.

Thanks so much. It does help. What will that show up as though on your tracker? Since you looked at your profile through the hideinthesky website what does your tracker say since technically it was visited by hideinthesky? I am hoping that it does not say much because I kept using it to check someone's profile for their last login date. I hope that they cannot trace that back to me? I think all it would say is that hideinthesky thing visited right? Thanks so much for the quick repsponse. : )

As I understand it, (and please, if I am wrong, someone correct me) When you probe someone's profile with hideinthesky, their profile views go up, but nothing appears on their tracker.  My tracker did not pick up a hit when I did it, and I use trackspace.

Hideinthesky probably just downloads the source of the page and scans it for trackers. I'm pretty sure they use the tracker list from here.

I use a slightly different tracker list than the one you guys have here. I think the user who I got it from got a lot of the sites from here though =).

EDIT

Yes, you're right, all my scripts do is download the page source, so no trackers should get loaded. You should be pretty safe from getting tracked if you're using the scripts, EXCEPT if there are any trackers in the comments section of a user's profile.

does anyone know the link to the website that can tell you if someone's profile has a tracker..i used it a few weeks ago and i thought i bookmarked it. All i did was get the profile's friend id and it would tell me if they had a tracker or not..can anyone help?
