How does the app, "Friend Watcher" Work?

Asked by LeavesNoTrace (2534 points ) February 4th, 2014

I heard people can see who you’re speaking to. It sounds very invasive. Everything I’ve seen about it sounds like it just tells when someone deletes you, which is silly.

My friend’s ex said he could see who she was speaking to using the app but I think he just hacked her FB. Is this possible?

This app monitors your list of Facebook friends and lets you know when they change their name, add you as a friend, deactivate their account, restore their account, delete you, block you or unblock you etc. Now regarding hacking, I don’t know how far it’s possible. But you can just be careful by taking some precautionary measures like hiding your Email Address from everyone (Edit Profile>Contact Information>Clicking on the icon beside your email address> checking ‘Only Me’). You can activate ‘Secure browsing’ in Accounts setting and check ‘Send me an email when a new computer or mobile device logs into this account’ and click Save. Also avoid clicking on suspicious links.
