Verify authenticity of any major currency note with Chkfake app
Bangalore, February 11 2018: There is so much fake currency floating around, that most of us can rarely tell real from counterfeit. In India the problem is compounded by so many new currency notes coming into circulation in recent months -- the latest is a Rs 200 note.
Chkfake is an iOS and Android app that allows anyone to check for authenticity of any major currency across globe. Once installed the app works in conjunction with the camera eys of your phone to zoom in on the key features and help you check if they are real. It also asks you to switch on the torch to look 'through' the note, at the watermark and other embedded features.
It takes a couple of minutes and actually depends on your yes-no judgment to verify the features and in that respect is not an automated tool. But may be worth your while when you get a high value currency note.
It also works with foreign currency including US Dollar, Euro, Pound Sterling and Chinese Yuan.
