Now-a-days, Online Social Networks (OSNs) are popular websites on the internet, which millions of users register on and share their own personal information with others. Privacy threats and disclosing personal information are the most important concerns of OSNs' users. Recently, a new attack which is named identity cloned attack is detected on OSNs. In this attack the attacker tries to make a fake identity of a real user in order to access to private information of the users' friends which they do not publish on the public profiles. In today OSNs, there are some verification services, but they are not active services and they are useful for users who are familiar with online identity issues.
