The first official mechanism for reporting deepfake content on social networks has been launched

Romanians will be able to report deepfake misinformation seen on Facebook, Instagram, or TikTok directly on the Ministry of Digitalization’s website.

Subsequently, experts from the Ministry of Digitalization will quickly analyze and forward the complaints to social media platforms for removal.

The Minister of Digitalization, Bogdan Ivan, announced on Friday morning that he has launched the first official mechanism for reporting deepfake content in Romania.

The nofake platform can be found on the Ministry of Digitalization's website at


"You can report deepfake content on social networks such as Facebook, Instagram, Google, YouTube, and TikTok.

The platform will ensure quick analysis and transmission to platforms within a very short period, of up to 60 minutes, of requests targeting digital forgeries, defamatory content, misinformation, and online manipulation, with the aim of removal," wrote Bogdan Ivan on Facebook.

The analysis team works even on weekends, but not at night.

"My team will ensure continuous handling of requests every day, including weekends, between 08:00-22:00," the minister further stated.


Bogdan Ivan thanks IT giants Google, Meta, and TikTok for their efforts: "They have managed to implement very efficient systems through which a substantial part of deepfake content is blocked even before publication."

The initiative comes in the context of the mega-electoral campaigns of 2024. Several politicians already appear in false videos freely circulating on the Internet. President Klaus Iohannis, Prime Minister Marcel Ciolacu, National Bank Governor Mugur Isărescu, all have become victims of such deepfakes.


Last month, the Government adopted a memorandum through which nine state institutions will cooperate to eliminate false content from the internet.
