However, the app which is called "Stalker viewer" is basically a scam since Facebook does not share such information with others and it is difficult for apps to find out who is visiting your Facebook profile.

The "Stalker Viewer" app looks like just any other Facebook app and will ask for your permissions before taking you to a page where they will ask you to complete a survey before you can see "Who’s viewing your Facebook Profile". However, once you complete the survey it will only make money for the scammers and not show you the information you are looking for.
