More About Fake News Monitor

Fake news is a real problem. This extension will generate a 1-10 trustworthiness score for each visited site. A notification will be triggered if a site is very likely to be unreliable (below 5 points). The app icon in the extensions bar will change the status based on the site’s score. A green check mark icon will be displayed if the score is between 8-10, a yellow question mark icon will be displayed if score is 6 or 7 and a red “X” icon will be shown in case the score is under 5. If it's a satire website, a smile icon will be shown. We use different sources and methods to assess the quality of the content, such as Alexa.com data, third party blacklists and a custom made "fake news sites" database. We also use MBFC News data to indicate the political leaning of the site.

Notifications can be disabled in the options menu.
