Apple cleans up Safari after it suggested search results on debunked conspiracy theories like the Holocaust being faked – Business Insider Malaysia
Apple has removed a bunch of suggested search results from Safari after its web browser pointed users to websites containing debunked conspiracy theories, such as the Holocaust being faked. BuzzFeed discovered that Safari was surfacing questionable results through its "Siri Suggested Websites," which autocompletes a search and recommends a website or a video for the user to click on. It is a problem that has plagued Google, which offers autocompleted search results that at times point users to inappropriate content from around the web. Search terms that delivered dodgy results included "the Holocaust didn’t happen," which suggested a Holocaust denier page on 666ismoney.com, and "QAnon is real," which suggested a YouTube video titled "The Calm Before the Storm – QAnon Is the Real Deal."
