Facebook Time Checker HoaxPieter posted in "Privacy & security". 6 years, 1 month ago
A spam application called Facebook Time Checker is luring unknowing users into completing advertisers’ offers in order to find out how much time they have spent on the site. And even though it is likely that Facebook itself tracks the length of your sessions for internal use, there’s currently no way a third-party application has access to the duration of your entire usage.
Facebook Time Checker – Find out how much time you’ve spent on Facebook!
Another status update we’ve seen goes like this:
Ive spent over 34 hours on facebook in my lifetime! Wow that’s a lot of time wasted! Find out how much time you’ve spent on facebook here – http://goo.gl/xxxxx
If you visit the final page of the application’s website, you’ll briefly see a message like “You have spent: 225 hours logged in on FB!” which is instantly covered up by a popup asking you to complete a promotional offer. However, you’ll see a different, randomly generated number of hours for every refresh of the page so don’t even bother clicking any of the links in that popup.
