Fake news: WhatsApp introduces 'checkpoints tipline'
New Delhi, Apr 03 (HS): WhatsApp has launched ''checkpoints tipline'' to keep a tab on fake news. Through this, people can check the authenticity of the information they receive. This tipline will help in creating a database of incorrect information and rumors. It will be possible to study these inquiries for ''checkpoints'' during the election. Checkpoint has been launched as a research project in which technical support is being given on behalf of WhatsApp. This service has been introduced by India''s Media Skill Startup company ''Proto''. The company said that people in the country can send wrong information or rumors to them at the checkpoint tipline at + 91-9643-000-888 of Whatsapp. Once a user submits this information to the tipline, Proto will notify the user by confirming the correct or false information on its certification center. With this confirmation, the user will know whether the message he got is correct, false, misleading or disputed. Proto''s Certification Center is able to confirm picture, video and written message. It can confirm Hindi, Telugu, Bengali and Malayalam language messages with English. Hindusthan Samachar/Radha/Ram\
