PRO TIP: As a shortcut, you can also just press Ctrl + U on your keyboard. This works for most popular web browsers.

4. On your keyboard, press Ctrl + F. Then type in “InitialChatFriendsList”.

Now you should be at a page with a ton of words, letters, and numbers, which are the codes that make up your profile page. To most people, this page will be super confusing. To easily find the part of the code you need to use to see who looks at your profile most, hold down the “Ctrl” key on your keyboard and then press the “F” key.

What this does is allow you to search for certain text on the current web page. As such, a text box will appear on your screen. In the text box, type in “InitialChatFriendsList” – but don’t include the quotation marks. Beside this code, you’ll be given a list of number codes that represent your friends’ profiles.

5. Copy and paste the profile ID numbers into the Facebook URL to see the results.

Now that you have the list of profile number codes, it’s time to find out who these codes represent. To do so, copy one of the numbers in the list to your clipboard. You can do this by clicking and dragging your mouse cursor across one of the numbers, then pressing the “Ctrl” and “C” keys on your keyboard together.

Then, click in your browser’s address bar and press the “Ctrl” and “P” keys on your keyboard together to paste the number into the Facebook URL. You need the regular URL, followed by a “/” and then the code. For example, if the profile ID number was 12345, you’d enter the URL

Checking a person's Facebook profile ID number

Repeat this last step to see the profiles of all the people who apparently view your profile the most.

Once you’ve finished going through all the ID numbers to figure out who’s supposedly been looking at your page, you might be wondering, do all these people really look at my profile? How often to they check it? Is this list really accurate? We’ll give you the scoop.


Are the results truly accurate?

These results seem to be accurate in showing who has been looking at your Facebook profile the most. However, some people have debated that perhaps some people appear on this list because you interact with them through Facebook regularly, rather than them actually going to your page.

Try this method out and see what results you get, and you can decide for yourself! If you’re curious about other ways to find out who looks at your page most, we have some information on that next.


Are there other ways to see who views my Facebook profile?

You can try out some different apps or browser extensions to see if they work for you. There are many of these kinds of apps available that claim to be able to tell you who has looked at your profile. However, some of these apps are definitely phony.

We’d recommend checking reviews of these apps before you download them yourself. Some apps may exist solely with the goal of capturing people’s personal information to sell it to marketing companies or even to try to steal your identity. See what other people are saying about an app to find out if it seems legitimate first.

There are a few apps we’ve discovered that seem to have pretty good reviews, so they’re trustworthy and work for their intended purpose. Here are a couple we would recommend checking out:
