Download the HealthGuard browser extension—totally free
To help fight COVID-19 hoaxes and misinformation online, Mount Sinai has entered a licensing agreement with NewsGuard to provide its new HealthGuard desktop browser extension to patients, students, employees, and affiliates for free on the most recent versions of Chrome, Safari, Firefox, and Edge browsers through August 2021.
Users can download HealthGuard free to see detailed trust ratings for hundreds of health news and information websites. HealthGuard’s red and green rating icons display next to links on search engines, social media pages, and other platforms, indicating whether a site is a trustworthy source of health information or not. Hover over the HealthGuard icon to see a summary of each site’s rating or click through to see a more detailed analysis. The ratings system will show a red flag next to websites publishing COVID-19 myths and other misinformation and show a green check mark next to trustworthy sites.
