    Checkpoint is a research project at PROTO, commissioned and technically assisted by WhatsApp to study the misinformation occurrence. The automated WhatsApp chatbot provided by the organization allows users to check and validate rumours. Users can send a rumour — including a text, image, or video link — to the tipline. Users will then receive a reply that the verification center will be reviewing the rumour for accuracy. If it is a known rumour the user will get a quick response. If it is a new rumour, it will take some time for the verification centre to determine if it can be verified. Check the accuracy of a rumour. Click on the "Connect-Me" button to get started now.
