The Story So Far

World’s largest private messaging platform: WhatsApp is also not free from all the misinformation. NASSCOM Foundation has partnered with WhatsApp to help curb the menace of misinformation and requires all the help it can get from its volunteers. Join us in the #FightAgainstMisinformation by training just three of your closed ones on the ‘Best Practices against Misinformation on WhatsApp’. Register Now to become a part of this national movement to create a supportive ecosystem for the thousands of citizens who currently are still falling prey to the monster of misinformation and fake news being spread through platforms like WhatsApp
