Request to WhatsApp and Facebook to incorporate features to catch fake news spreaders!

0 have signed. Let’s get to 100!


With so much false news/stories floating on the Internet and being used for spreading hatred, defaming individuals, communities, religions, race, countries, political groups etc. This has lead to many crimes, riots etc leading to lynching, deaths & injuries.

WhatsApp & Facebook is being used extensively for this purpose.

I request WhatsApp & Facebook to integrate these features :

  • The IP Address of the originator of any text, photo, video message must get embedded in encrypted form in the message. Similarly IP Addresses of all those who forward the message must also get embedded. This will help the law enforcement authorities to catch those who start or forward a false message.
  • An option to mark a story as spam/false with a sign (❌) to denote a message as fake for those messages which have been verified to be fake/false.

Please help me to spread this message as much as possible so, govt authorities force Facebook to incorporate these features.

Please sign this petition and forward it to your networks, groups, timelines etc...
