You can report Coronavirus fake video on TikTok: Here's how

Fake news is one of the biggest concerns of the digital world, apart from the hacking attacks, during the ongoing Covid-19 outbreak.

The Chinese firm ByteDance-owned app said on Thursday that it had taken various measures to better fight misinformation on the platform, specially in view of COVID-19.

The reporting feature, which is being rolled out to all the app’s users in a phased manner, allows users to report any content they believe could be intentionally deceptive by selecting the ‘Misleading Information’ category within the app.

Once a user flags any COVID-19 misinformation, it is sent to a “priority moderation queue” manned by an internal ‘Taskforce’ comprising members from various teams across the company and then escalated to third-party fact-checkers.

TikTok has launched a new feature on its platform that makes it easy for users to report fake videos pertaining to Covid-19. In addition to that, users can also report fake information pertaining to other topics.
