Fakespot is a website and browser extension that helps consumers analyze and identify potential fake or unreliable reviews for products sold on various e-commerce websites. It uses artificial intelligence algorithms to assess the credibility of reviews based on patterns and data points. Fakespot does not review products or companies directly but focuses on grading the reliability of online consumer reviews.
The Fakespot website provides a rating system that evaluates the authenticity of reviews on platforms such as Amazon, Best Buy, eBay, Sephora, Walmart, and Shopify. Users can also install the Fakespot browser extension, available for Firefox, Chrome, Edge, Safari, and all Chromium browsers, to view Fakespot’s review grades directly on product images or seller ratings on supported websites.
