Fake Off algorithm includes the last ten days activity of a profile in its test. It considers the amount of response a profile’s posts are getting, whether the profile uses mobile device to use Facebook etc factors.

You can subscribe to its premium service if you want Fake Off to consider the Facebook activity data of one year in its test. Fake Off also let you compare the Facebook pictures of your friends to confirm whether they are their own pictures or they are using pictures of somebody else in their profile.

The only drawback of this Fake Off Facebook app is that its algorithm is totally based on the behavior of your Facebook friend’s activity on Facebook. So if any of your friend is not active on Facebook since a long time, though they are real or you know them personally, they can get low ranking in the test. But still using this cool app, you can easily find the fake Facebook profiles in your account.
