Every Monero accounts have their own distinctive view key which allows users to check a specific account’s transactions.

Initially, it was possible for Monero users to trace the amount being transferred while keeping the sender and the receiver hidden. But with their new update, RingCT obscured both the value of individual transactions, along with the identity of senders and recipients.
