About Who Visits Your Twitter Profile

As you can see in Images, there are various websites like checkvisitss.tk and lastvisitors.tk purporting to present the App to check Who Visits Your Twitter Profile. As explained on Malwarebytes blog blog.malwarebytes.com, clicking the link that comes with the message on social media takes user to a website asking him to ‘Connect with Twitter’. Click on the button directs the user to install the app by authorizing it. The catch here, users may ignore to see, the App can “Update your profile” and “Post Tweets for you”.

It’s a Scam

Technically speaking, it would be breach of privacy laws in part of any Twitter app claiming to reveal who visits and sees your profile and tweets. In current case, the apps are only designed to spam the Twitter user account, post advertisements, and may even make them download or run malware programs. In some cases, the scam applications can also use bot network spread scams, promote fake news, and even phish user data. We advise Twitter users not to access and install these rogue apps. Also, be careful with the browser extensions claiming to show who visits your Twitter profile. They may not come from reputable companies, and some even try to steal your data; without actually working the way you hope. The scammers seem to have used the old concept that appeared on Facebook as well, suggesting users to check Who Views Your Facebook Profile.

Who Views your Facebook Profile – Facts Analysis

In case, you have already installed the scam apps on Twitter, you can go to your account’s ‘Settings and privacy‘ and visit the ‘Apps’ section to ‘Revoke access’ to those malicious apps. You can also delete any suspicious tweet activity from your account. If not for who visits your profile, note, the Twitter Analytics provides users some information on how many people are seeing their profile or tweets.

Hoax or Fact:

Scam.
