Before you share, check the source! Use these tools to stay ahead of frauds and hoaxes.
Double check news sources with Google News
If an article you are reading is too outrageous or sounds too good to be true, it might be misinformation. Run a search of the story on Google News to see if a reputable media source is reporting the same thing.
Check an image’s context with Google Image search
Images can be faked or used out of context. If something you see looks a bit strange right click the image and run a Google Image search to see how else the image is used or where it might have come from.
Check a YouTube video’s basic info
Come across a video that seems to have answers no one else does? Check the channel is verified or if there is other content, social and website links, or an audience size you’d expect before giving it any credibility.
Check the URL for info about the source
When you’re reading news online, take a moment to look at the website’s domain address. Misinformation sites often try to look like a reputable site with a similar name.
