ABP NEWS Published on Jul 6, 2018
WhatsApp has recently been in the news for being called up by the Indian government for not doing enough to tackle the fake news problem that has, incidentally, led to at least 27 deaths in India so far. Finally deciding to tackle the problem, WhatsApp is testing a tool that could help fish out fake news.All WhatsApp is going to do is run a background check of every link being shared on the platform to verify whether the information is true. If not, a "Suspicious Link" flag will pop up against the link. If one decides to ignore the flag and still click to open the link anyway, WhatsApp again throws up an alert asking the user if they want to proceed.
