Topical context in information panel

Note: In response to Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19), you may see information panels with links to learn more about COVID-19 or COVID-19 vaccine info. In some places, you’ll notice COVID-19 info or COVID-19 vaccine info in local languages with links to local sources, such as health ministries and centers for disease control.

When you search or watch videos related to topics prone to misinformation, such as the moon landing, you may see an information panel at the top of your search results or under a video you're watching.

Information panels show basic background info, sourced from independent, third-party partners, to give more context on a topic. If you want to learn more, the panels also link to the third-party partner’s website.

These information panels will show regardless of what opinions or perspectives are expressed in a video.

Information panels may not be available in all countries/regions and languages. We're working to bring information panels to more countries/regions.

These information panels are not used in any decisions about monetization. Learn more about our Advertiser-Friendly Content Guidelines.


YouTube doesn’t endorse or create any of the info shown in information panels on YouTube. If you disagree with info in a particular article, please contact the website owner that published the article. If you see an information panel that violates our Community Guidelinessend us feedback.
