“Since the beginning of our company, our Community Guidelines have protected the YouTube community from harmful content. We enforce our policies using a combination of machine learning and human reviewers,” YouTube said.

Earlier this month, YouTube said curbing misinformation is vital for platforms and society as technology evolves and AI-powered tools emerge, asserting that the video-streaming platform was quick to crack down on tech content aimed at misleading users and causing harm in the real world.

YouTube has well-established community guidelines that govern what type of content is allowed on the platform, Ishan John Chatterjee, YouTube’s director for India, said at the time.

According to Chatterjee, combating misinformation is an area of ​​critical importance to the platform. “We have made significant investments and made progress. But we know that our work here is never finished, so we will continue to invest in this area,” he had said.
