We all have done a bit of image searching on Google and people are aware of how it works. You just simply go to the internet, search the images you are looking for, and get results. But there is one more thing to it and that is reverse image search.

For those of you who don’t know what reverse image search is, it is a process where you upload the image and search the internet for relative information. You can know where and when the original picture was posted and get all the information about it. It also lets you get more cleared and high-resolution picture of the image. This function also lets you find the fake and morphed images related to your search so you can know who is spreading the fake news.

It is pretty simple to do a reverse search on a computer but doing Google reverse image search on your phone might be a little confusing for some people. We are going to be talking about how you can perform this reverse search on your phones, both iPhone and Android. So let us not waste any more time and get right to it.

Third-Party Apps and Engines
