FB Checker is usually right when it detects a fake account, but it's not much more helpful than just looking at a person's profile, yourself. It only scans pictures and makes you do most of the work before it can scan anything. Still, if you've been scammed by a Facebook bot in the past, this app might come in handy in the future.
This program doesn't scan your profile, but watches over it while you surf to analyze any profile you land on. Because of how it works, you have to log in to Facebook and give FB Checker all sorts of permissions, even over your friend's birth dates and other sensitive knowledge. That's a little odd, since the program doesn't seem to scan any of those things when it's deciding whether or not the profile in question is a fake. Instead, you have to select five or so of the profile's photos that the app will scan against photos posted elsewhere. It then assigns a possibility score of how likely it is that the profile is a fake. During testing, the app correctly identified several real profiles as most likely real and two fake profiles as probably fake.
Accuracy isn't this app's problem; it's the fact that it asks so much of you to give you so little in return. By only scanning pictures, FB Checker doesn't give you any more insight than what you might guess when you look at a new friend's pictures. If it scanned full profiles or let you passively scan your friend list for fakes, it would be worth the effort. As it is now, this app could prove handy only if you have too many friend requests from people you don't actually know in person and want to check their credibility once you add them to your friends list.
FB Checker verifies if people that you meet on Facebook are real or if they have fake pictures and accounts. People create false accounts in order to advertise or simply get attention. These accounts contain photos of attractive people in order to lure you to friend them, talk to them and give them your full attention. Avoid being disappointed by checking a person's profile for authenticity before investing time or even before adding them as friends. FB Checker can tell you if a person's photos are theirs or they were simply taken from elsewhere on the Internet.
