4 ways to use Search to check facts, images and sources online

For International Fact-Checking Day, we’re sharing four Search features that can help you quickly evaluate information and get key context to make sense of what you’re seeing online.

And to give more people access to these tools, we’ve expanded two features — About this image and About this page — to 40 additional languages globally.

Learn more about a site in “more about this page”

You may recognize a lot of websites in your search results, but there might be others you don’t. Our About this result feature lets you get context about a website before you click through. Just click the three dots next to a website in search results and tap on the “more about this page” tab. That will bring up information about the website, such as how Wikipedia describes it (when available) and what others on the web have said about the site. With more information about the website, you can make a more informed decision about visiting it.

The “more about this page” feature in About this result is now available in 40 additional languages globally including French, German, Hindi, Italian, Japanese, Korean, Portuguese, Spanish and Vietnamese.
