Full Fact launches a WhatsApp fact checking service in the UK

By Staff Writer

Since the coronavirus pandemic began we’ve seen more and more harmful content coming to us via WhatsApp. It spread like wildfire across WhatsApp, but the Ambulance Trust and Public Health England later said that the information in the voice recording is not correct and urged people not to share it. That’s why we’re partnering with WhatsApp to create a Full Fact WhatsApp service. The next time you see something being shared on Whatsapp that you’re not sure of, you can forward it on directly to us, and we’ll fact check it for you. We’re testing this service as a pilot for the next 3 months, so hop onto WhatsApp and give it a try.
