    1. Under normal circumstances the detector or more precisely, the Yahoo Messenger detectors have the same working principles. Since they have the same basics, the situation when they give back a bad result is extremely rare. During the detection process they send very specific packages. One of the possibilities of a bad result can be caused by the result of the Yahoo server not giving back a proper answer.

    2. The detection’s base is formed by specific robots and messenger IDs, therefore a bad result can be caused also by a Wrong yahoo statusproblem that the robots might have interpreting at the exact same moment when a certain ID is checked by a user. Obviously these are very rare cases.

    3. We still have to mention about the robots only one more thing. There are some rare occasion when all of the robots are disconnected from the Yahoo server for one unknown reason. Probably someone has restarted the server on which they were previously connected, and this can lead to the disconnection or a sort of “temporary ban” of the robots. When these rare occasion do happen, the robots will always display an online Status for the verified ID answer.

    4. A very unpleasant situation occurred in the last couple of weeks, when a server on which the robots were running their detections has physically broken down. Unfortunately the only thing we could do is to give back random results as long as the problem persisted, which luckily wasn’t a long time. The issue was resolved in about two hours. Still, it’s very good news that these kinds of mishaps occur extremely rarely.

    5. There is another rare issue, as rare as the problem described above, that can lead to bad results being shown. This is when there are major changes happening in the design or the basic structure of the website, case in which the server can become slightly unstable, usually during the testing period. In these cases we might be forced to stop a part or in extreme cases our whole services for a couple of minutes, until the problem is dealt with.

    6. Complications may arise due to the client that you may use as well. Until recently the detector was able to work on any version Yahoo Messenger client or other clients as well. Pidgin, Trillian, Miranda, etc. were no problem, but now the detector has some limitations regarding the range of clients and versions of Yahoo Messenger that are in use by the general public. Our detector is working perfectly though on any Yahoo Messenger client, including to the version 10.

    7. Luckily Yahoo’s official Web Messenger became embedded in the Yahoo Mail service interface, in the left hand menu bar. Therefore our detector is able to show those users’ real yahoo status who are logged in to their e-mail account as well.

    Other web messenger services like Ebuddy or Meebo are using old Yahoo protocols therefore no detectors are able to show real status.

    8. There can be only one more cause, that we will mention, that can lead to bad results appearing to a user, and that is if the Yahoo Messenger client connects to a server that doesn’t have the vulnerability with which the detectors are working. In order to understand completely this part, you should read the article where it is explained how exactly yahoo detectors work.

      I experience a wrong yahoo status yesterday July 14 from 8:56 pm until 11:17pm when I’m chatting her. The ID status your report says offline but in fact she is invisible. I’m the only one on her contact list in YM.

      I have not found any of these detectors to work…. all useless now on Nov 2012.

      • random on January 14, 2013

        i have found the same. you cant trust them to tell you the truth. i even proved it with my own id going on invisible. they claim i am offline.

        i have found one which every now and then says i am invisible when i am. but its rare for it to actually give a correct reading.

      Yahoo detector hasn’t been working for invisible ids for about 3 days now. Any idea why or when this will be working again?

      • Detector Invisible Yahoo on November 26, 2012

        Just read the blog in order to understand how it’s working and what could be in your case.

      • Detector Invisible Yahoo on February 1, 2013

        This is very off, because it’s working 100% for us.
        Be aware that if you are checking for 20-30 time on different site it’s a normal thing to start going wrong.
        Try 3-5 times on detectinvisible.com and take a conclusion. It should show the same result.

    • behnam on February 2, 2013

      hello,yes you right,but i myself am a little bit sensitive to details.but in general its working 100% but if we want to consider more exact its working 99%,but the problem i told u is once in a while not always,most of the time it really working 100%,i my self prefer detectinvisible.com,because its errors are so poor than other sites,anyway tnx again for both replying the visitors’ comments and also fixing the problems as soon as possible,good luck dear

        • Detector Invisible Yahoo on June 4, 2013

          It’s an issue with Yahoo and we’re working to fix it.

    • Nu on May 22, 2013

      Hello. The gliche seems to be back.
      any idea how long before you can fix it please?

    • Tony on May 23, 2013

      Hopefully, *busy servers* means you are fixing this detector, as it does not even show me when I am invisible, on another machine and IP address …

      • Detector Invisible Yahoo on June 4, 2013

        We are working on fixing it

    • *Twest1* on May 26, 2013

      Did Yahoo figure out how to detect and block your robots here at Detectlnvisible now? That’s too bad, l really liked your service. You made it easy to spy on and stalk people. Why else would anyone need your service other than to catch people lying about being offline and trying to be sneaky about it, right? (See “ben’s” msgs above, lol–he’s bigtime stalking someone!) Hope you get this fixed soon! lt’s great fun and a great invasion of “privacy”–love it!

    • manisha on June 10, 2013

      Please fix the invisible detector. shows inconsistent results every time.

    • NU on June 19, 2013

      Hello again.

      Do you have any update on when this might be working again please?

    • Mohed on June 25, 2013

      invisible detector is not working, it gives unreliable results. Anybody know when the problem will be fixed. Many thanks

      • Detector Invisible Yahoo on June 28, 2013

        We’re working in it.

    • Tim on June 27, 2013

      This detector, and any other one I have tested, is not reliable.

      It has shown me as a combination of offline and invisible statuses when my own account was set as invisible. The only time it is accurate is when a person is actually logged in and visible. In fact i once tested it against an account name that does not exist and listed it as invisible.

      These tests have taken place over six weeks.

      Please do not make the mistake of friend who made accusations based on data from this detector leading to disastrous consequences.

      I hope the developers manage to fix it, its a useful service when working

      As someone whose job it is to find people online, this is a tool that can not be used.


      • Char on September 8, 2013

        Thanks for confirming this. I was getting mixed results and wasn’t sure which to believe. Now I do. I almost did something very bad based on false information. I appreciate it.

    • leila on July 14, 2013

      The detector still does not work properly. I have searched for several people and each time it gives a different status back to back. One minute it will say offline and then invisible. Please fix.

    • PHYLLIS~ on July 23, 2013

      Why is it for the past two days, Detect Invisible has been showing EVERYONE as being ‘Invisible”!? Even when many are KNOWN to be offline. Some not even on their PCs!?

      • Detector Invisible Yahoo on October 25, 2013

        It was an error from us. One of our server was down

    • Pas on July 29, 2013

      MUCH better on the current status..but now NO pics of ANYone..just the spinning circle constantly….

      • Pas on August 22, 2013

        YIPPEE!!!!!! It’s FINALLY working after…..months of not..
        It’s so appreciated and such a valuable tool! Kudos!!!!!

      • Detector Invisible Yahoo on October 25, 2013

        The issue is fixed now

        • Tony on October 26, 2013

          IT IS NOT working, and has not for ages. eons even.

    • Nu on August 4, 2013

      I was wondering if you have any update on this please?

    • Nancy Harmon on August 17, 2013

      I have notice for the last few weeks this site is giving false readings. I tested it out on my self and I was invisible and it showed I was not on line, also my avatar is gone. I tested it on a couple of my friends and it would switched from showing invisible to not on line when they were invisible, also their avatar is also missing. What’s going on? This was a good site but its unreliable now. Hopefully you will get it corrected. Thanks!

      • Detector Invisible Yahoo on October 25, 2013

        We fixed online detection but we work for invisible detector

    • Tina on August 30, 2013

      Still has the problem!! It’s working wrong ..

    • Tony on September 26, 2013

      This detector has not functioned correctly for over 6 months now, what is going on? Why do you promote this as being perfect when it does not work? I have tested it 100 times on people I am chatting to who are invisible, they are said to be off line, I have tested it with my own account, when ON line and been told I am not, and often get an invisible detection when those people are OFF line. PLUS, I would love to know why you do not post all comments here, why even have this forum if you are not going to genuinely put the questions up?

    • Tony on September 27, 2013

      A response too, would be nice 😉 … 😀

    • Phyllis on September 27, 2013

      I have checked Detect Invisible numerous times and have found the following results.
      I will be chatting with someone on Yahoo Messenger, and clicked on Detect Invisible and it says the person I’m talking with is offline. Other times I’ve been talking with someone on the phone and Detect Invisible has said they are online, or invisible, when in actually, their PC is turned off. So, how can Detect Invisible be considered reliable!?

      • Detector Invisible Yahoo on October 25, 2013

        Since Yahoo changed its protocol we encounter a decrease in yahoo invisible detection, but we’re working to fix the situation

    • Mogetsu on September 28, 2013

      Unfortunately I don’t think it’s possible to fix. Yahoo changed a lot of stuff and keeps making changes. I’d suggest to the developers to look at Yahoo Mail as there’s some kind of online presence indicator in the send to field now. Maybe it would offer some clues.

      Sucks to see these services die off. It was always nice to know when someone was bullshitting you.

      • Detector Invisible Yahoo on October 25, 2013

        Online detection is fixed now.

    • Nu on October 25, 2013

      sorry guys …. for me it is showing … online for those who are actually online … but for invisible showing “offline”

    • Tony on October 26, 2013

      This thing is absolutely useless, it has not worked correctly for over a year, I am chatting NOW to someone invisible, and the thing says off line. Why don’t you pull the damn thing off the web, instead of pretending you offer a functioning detector? What is the point, maybe you like creating problems for people that believe some of the things your erroneously display? FIX IT or CLOSE it down.

    • nu on October 26, 2013

      Sorry it still is not working
      Even showing offline accounts alternating as Invisible/Offline

    • Trapper on November 4, 2013

      I signed out of Yahoo Messenger and detectinvisible.com said I was invisible about half the time.
      I exited Yahoo Messenger and sometimes it still says I’m invisible. How can I trust it to detect others?

    • Darla Gartman on February 10, 2014

      I have 2 yahoo names, and it shows me as offline when I definitely show that I’m not, so I’m beginning to think this thing doesn’t work!!
      Any idea on how I this can be fixed?

      • Detector Invisible Yahoo on February 17, 2014

        It could be because of the server your Yahoo ID is connecting to.

    • Nu on March 14, 2014

      I think that this service is not finished.
      The search has not been working correctly for nearly one year …
      It is dead!

    • Cindy on September 2, 2014

      The person I am tracking shows invisible on detect invisible but I do not get an email to that affect. so the person can be invisible but it’s not registering correctly.

      Also I clicked on to send a message letting your company know it wasn’t working correctly and the captcha was not working, it did not have the box where you can enter whatever the lettes or numbert go in.. Please help

      • Detector Invisible Yahoo on September 7, 2014

        Please contact me through contact form and later prepare some screenshots in order to understand your issue

    • Karl on October 20, 2016

      I was wondering why after a certain amount of detection executions that it stops detecting and says File not found.
