Newsguard Technologies’ browser extension is included by default in Microsoft’s Edge browser for mobile devices and is available on Chrome, Edge desktop and Firefox. Ratings allow users to identify sites with high levels of reliability, trustworthiness and transparency
Newsguard is a service run by journalists to assess the reliability and trustworthiness of news websites. SKWAWKBOX has passed the assessment and received the green approval mark.
Users who have installed and enabled the Newsguard browser extension will now see the green tick/shield logo next to the address bar in their browser:
Clicking on the icon allows site visitors to read either a short or full ‘nutrition label’ and to read the content with a high degree of confidence in the way the site is run, written and sourced. The icon also appears next to links posted on social media platforms such as Twitter and Facebook, for users who have the extension enabled.
The SKWAWKBOX’s full ‘nutrition label’ can be read here.
