Today, you can know who is watching your Facebook profile, moreover several platforms and applications allow you to do so. However, these services expose you to many risks: viruses and scams.

"Facebook does not allow users to know who is viewing their profile. Nor do third-party applications offer this functionality. If you find an application that claims to offer this functionality, please report it to us."
