About this guide
Using your phone, tablet or computer is great for keeping in contact with family
and friends and finding interesting things to watch and read.
However, you might come across some information that looks real but is false or
inaccurate. A lot of false information has been created about COVID-19.
That is why it is important that you identify reliable sources of information and be
cautious about any other information you see, read or hear. This leaflet tells you
about reliable sources of information, steps you can take to check information,
and how you can recognise the main types of false information.
