Abstract: People use Online Social Networks to build social connections with others who are having similar personal interests or come from the same backgrounds and professions. These social platforms make people’s lives better while generating lots of problems for society. Malicious individuals use social media to clone profiles by obtaining sensitive and crucial information from a target person. These attacks damage the reputation of legitimate users. Detecting these identical fraudulent accounts has thus become a critical aspect of modern social media. Many researchers have attempted to address the issue of detecting fake profiles in online social networks. More solid solutions, on the other hand, must be pursued. In this paper, we report on the investigation of a possible approach to eliminating fake profile creation.
Keywords: Online Social Networks, National Identification Number, National ID, Fake Profile, Profile Cloning.
