To help fight COVID-19 hoaxes and other misinformation online, we are excited to offer free access to NewsGuard’s browser extension. We have partnered with NewsGuard to provide you with FREE access to your desktop browser extension and mobile app until the end of the year.

Users of the browser extension will see NewsGuard’s Red and Green rating icons displayed next to links on search engines, social media pages, and other platforms, indicating whether a site is generally trustworthy or a known purveyor of misinformation. Mobile app users will be able to look up the rating of any site rated by NewsGuard and read its detailed review.
