Is someone stalking you on Facebook? Is it your family watching what you post, a colleague watching all your updates at once, or is it your ex? And it gives you nightmares. How would you react if we told you that you could actually find out who is stalking your Facebook profile? This too is done in easy steps. Read this till the end to find out how!

We all use Facebook, and even if we don’t, we have an account there to keep up to date with our friends, family, colleagues and acquaintances.

In the privacy settings of its main app, Facebook now allows iOS users to see who has visited their profile. If you have an iOS device, all you need to do is go to Privacy Shortcuts and choose the “Who viewed my profile” option.

For now, this option is only available in the Facebook iOS app. However, the method does not tell you the time and date when your facebook friend visited your profile. While iOS users can check who visited their Facebook profile using the Privacy settings, other users can do so by visiting the official Facebook site on their desktop. Today we are going to show you the two methods to find out who viewed your Facebook timeline.

Is your Facebook account being harassed?  Find out in a few easy steps!

As soon as you have the slightest hint of harassment, it is advisable to unsubscribe and then block the profile. This option will help limit the damage and the stalker will not be able to visit your profile and timeline. Your Facebook profile will not appear in search results. The most important thing is that your blocking action will not be notified by FB.

File a complaint

Despite repeated reminders that harassment on Facebook is more like bullying or harassment, you may consider the option of reporting the account to Facebook. Report the person or any abusive content they post, as it goes against community standards.

Use the “Restricted” Privacy Settings option

If you don’t want to press charges, Facebook makes it easy to add these harassers to your shortlist. This feature does not allow them to monitor you unless you make your posts public.

If you don’t know how to add someone to the restricted list, go to their profile. Select the Friends option as shown below. Go to “Add to another list…”, then select Restricted.
