With the latest update to the mobile version of its Edge browser, Microsoft is ramping up efforts to combat fake news .

Previously, NewsGuard was available only as an extension to the desktop version of Edge.

NewsGuard uses actual humans – journalists and analysts – to determine if a website is rather than relying on an algorithm that can be tricked or gamed.

Next to a site URL at the top of Edge, you'll see a red icon if a site is dubious and a green icon if it can be trusted. Tap the icon to get a brief description of the rating.
