If you are concerned about that and looking for a way to know who visited your Whatsapp profile and DP, then you are at the right place. In this article, we’ll show your how to know who viewed my Whatsapp profile and status. Read on.

How to Know Who Viewed My WhatsApp Profile?

Whatsapp so far has no default option to track who viewed your Whatsapp profile. And it’s unknown that whether Whatsapp is tracking them secretly and not providing an option for the users to see or there is no such thing in the Whatsapp server. Whatever it is, currently we users are not provided with such facilities in our WhatsApp mobile, WhatsApp Web, and desktop client.

Comedy is that there are a plethora of third-party android applications in the play store that claims that they can track who viewed your profile and DP. If you install them and keep them on your smartphone for a few hours they will show you a list of people who view your profile and display pictures. Do you think that it is real? Definitely not. All the info they are providing is bogus! They are absolute time wasters.

Basically, if they can track your profile views, either they have to partner with Whatsapp or they have to hack the Whatsapp server. Needless to say, the feasibility for both of the methods is almost zero. So What’s next? Can you track who is stalking you on Whatsapp?

The short answer is NO. This is because only Whatapp company has the information about its users and no third-party apps can get the data. No such APIs are provided by Whatsapp for this to work. So unless Whatsapp shares the data, you can never get the real data. And Whatsapp will never compromise user data and privacy.
