Fakespot has already analyzed over 3 billion reviews and helped shoppers avoid products with disingenuous reviews. Make more informed decisions on products and locations with the extra insight that Fakespot can provide.
We are a data analytics company specializing in providing an online service for smarter shopping which analyzes product reviews and provides potential buyers with a grade based on the reviews authenticity.
With so many online shopping and app options, product reviews can be a valuable indication of which companies to trust with your money. User reviews should be an informative tool for providing honest feedback from other buyers - but what about when the reviews themselves cannot be trusted? Recent reports of companies tampering with reviews have led to consumer doubt about their validity, and for good reason. In the last year Amazon filed lawsuits against a number of companies that offered to pay for positive reviews, while stories continually come to light of schemes which offer free or discounted products in return for reviews.

Needs 3rd party review
I have used this app for a long time and in some ways it is great.. How over time I have noticed on products with a small hands full of reviews it is clearly not accurate based on actually reading the True reviews. Most Chinese electronic products are guaranteed D or F. Where this app fails are on domestically made goods that only a middle aged dad, or scoutmaster would buy and review. An item might have 15 very obviously genuine reviews only to be hammered by face spot. If Fakespot is legit,they they would hire an independent lab to test or allow consumer reports to take a stab at it. Untill then, what's to say a vender does not offer bribes and kickbacks to raise their score. With a very slim homepage, very few details on how it works, use it mostly like a last line of defence tool or only when buying consumer electronic. Or, just assume it's a big lie. If verified I think I'd actually buy this app or a subscription.
Works perfectly... indispensable.. to help those who can not figure out instruction it gives in the info icon, get help from someone you know more comfortable with finding and following instructions, in reading the step by step that you have to go to, in the share on the browser you are looking at and prompt it there then it will show in the share where you can activate it on the page in more and finally when on the browser and product you are looking at on the page you can analyze bringing it up in share ... and the app will also work after this .. hope this helps.
Works great after I figured out how to use it
How to use-
Press the share button on a product or app (a button that says share or a square with an arrow pointing up) if the bottom row doesn’t have a button that says analyze with Fakespot press the more button and turn on Fakespot.
It did take me a few minutes to figure out, idk why they don’t have any instructions whatsoever. I also tried to google instructions with no luck. It works great though, a small screen pops up with the analysis.
With Family Sharing set up, up to six family members can use this app.
