The extension is an interactive version of First Draft’s Visual Verification Guide for photos and images. It allows you to have an image or video open in your browser and then work through a checklist which prompts you to investigate 1) whether you are looking at an original piece of content 2) how confident you are about who created the content 3) how confident you are about when the content was capture and 4) how confident you are about where the content was captured. When you have worked through the checklist, the extension calculates a verification score and creates a button which you can embed on your website. The app was funded by the Shuttleworth Foundation and built by Claire Wardle and Gilad Penn.
