App to find out who enters my WhatsApp profile
As mentioned in the previous paragraphs, there is no solution that allows you to know the identity of those who look at their information on WhatsApp. If, then, you are wondering if they exist app to find out who enters my WhatsApp profile, the answer is no.
Although the Net is full of applications and, above all, of APK packages from little credited sources that promise to let you find out who enters your WhatsApp profile, I strongly advise you not to download and install them on your device. In fact, not only do they not allow you to know who is accessing your WhatsApp profile information but they are real dangers for both your privacy and your device.
