Like others already said, this plugin leaves a mess of session files in your website folder. Also it seems to throw in some loop back error in WordPress health check. So till this plugin is updated I advise everyone to not install it... and if you look at the forum how long ago this error is I believe the developer does not want to fix this... take it down if you don't want to fix this ... how hard can it be. this is the problem with WordPress plugins it seems a nice plugin to have. But people just leave the plugin in a non-working state online full of errors… Edit 1: Yes the session files are gone now… Thanks for that and the fast response! Awesome didn't expect that. Still having an issue that the plugins throws error in site health check. To be clear I use it with BuddyBoss and BuddyX theme. Maybe there is some incompatible with that. But when I activate the plugin this is the error I get and it disappears when I deactivate it The REST API request failed due to an error. Error: [] cURL error 28: Operation timed out after 10001 milliseconds with 0 bytes received

I am very sorry to write a negative review of someone's hard work, but this plugin is not something to install on your BuddyPress site. The plugin writes tons upon tons of session files - often in random folders and can throttle your site. This: [/home/sitename]# grep -in session_save ./public_html/wp-content/plugins/buddypress-profile-views/bp_profile_views.php 20: session_save_path("../") ; is likely the guilty piece of code. I wish the developer the best of luck if he/she decides to tackle this again. It would be a very handy thing to have. But, until and unless there is a new release of this plugin, I strongly advise against installing it.
