About US

Auntie Meiyu was created by Taiwanese Programmer Carol Hsu at the end of 2018. Starting out as a LINE chatbot, the main purpose of the project was to aid friends and family in discerning fake news and rumors that are forever prevalent within the messenging app. After being recevied with great enthusiasim, the service was soon released to the public as well, and as of today enjoys a presence of over 300,000 users.
As the service exploded in size, the needed infrastructure and operational support ballooned as well. Recognizing the need for a reputable partner, Auntie Meiyu joined hands with Gogolook, the developer behind popular caller ID app Whoscall in 2020. With a united goal of providing safety and trust to users, the Auntie Meiyu service expanded it's offerings to offer even more complete protection to the general public.
Currently, the data sources that Auntie Meiyu draws from includes Gogolook's own phone number database, the Criminal Investigation Bureau's national database, renowned data breach checking website「Have I been pwned?」, fact-checking platform Cofacts, Taiwan FactCheck Center, and fact-checker MyGoPen.
