About this app

Fact-check before you believe.

This fact-checking app by the Indian fact-checking website, Alt News, fact-checks misinformation viral on social media platforms in India.

The app will allow you to look-up images and videos against the database of stories that have already been fact-checked by Alt News and get instant fact-checks. For images/videos that have not been fact-checked yet, you'll get notifications as and when they get fact-checked.

We prioritise fact-checks based on the potential negative impact of the fake news. We do not fact-check frivolous content including viral memes, bollywood gossip and funny videos.

This is one of the top fact checking portals in India and life saver for many. Completely satisfied with the contents. But the only issue in the app that I feel annoying is that the posts do not open in the app itself, instead it uses an external browser to view the posts. I would very much like to view the posts on the app itself without opening like a link in an external browser. I'll give it five star when the developer fix that.

2 big problems with the app which makes it difficult to use. 1. Can't upload images when twitter opens embedded in the app. 2. When pressed back, it sends me to the home page, instead of the article that I was reading.

The app crashes when I try to upload a video for fact check, and when I try to upload an image, it doesn't get uploaded. FYI, my smartphone is Mi A2, Android version 10. Please fix this issue in the next update please.
