Spoofed Unicode Checker

World's Simplest Unicode Tool

This browser-based utility checks for spoofed characters in the given Unicode text and display its status on the screen. The text that you paste or enter in the input text area is scanned for homoglyphs and you'll get a red badge (meaning the text contains homoglyphs and is spoofed) or a green badge (meaning the text doesn't contain homoglyphs and isn't spoofed) in the output. You can also visualize the spoofed characters as well as see detailed information about the code points and positions of the spoofed characters. Created by encoding gurus from team Browserling.

In "Preview Spoofs" mode, the '◌'

What Is a Spoofed Unicode Checker?

This online utility checks whether the given Unicode text is spoofed or not. The program scans the input text and detects the presence of spoofed characters in the form of homoglyphs in it. Homoglyphs are Unicode characters that are very similar or even identical to regular ASCII characters but that have different code points and come from different writing systems. For example, the letters "ϲ" (Greek lunate sigma symbol, code point U+03F2) and "с" (Cyrillic small letter es, code point U+0441) are homoglyphs of the Latin letter "c" (code point U+0063). This tool tries to find such characters in the text and alerts the user if any are found. If the input text contains only regular ASCII characters, the tool displays a message on the screen saying "This text is not spoofed." and shows a green badge. However, if spoofed characters are detected, the tool displays a message saying "This text contains spoofed characters." and shows a red badge. Additionally, if the text is spoofed, the tool either visualizes all spoofed characters or prints detailed information about all spoofed characters. For example, in the "Preview Spoofs" mode, if the text "dog" is entered, the tool will display the string "◌о◌". Here the symbol "◌" represents regular ASCII letters and the visible letters are the spoofed ones. Alternatively, if the "Print Detailed Summary" mode is active, the tool provides detailed information about the spoofed characters, such as "symbol: о, code point: U+043E, position: 2". The tool can also detect spoofed punctuation marks, space characters (including and zero-width spaces).

Check If a Social Media Post Is Spoofed

In this example, we noticed an Instagram post that seemed suspicious to us and we used our utility to check for the presence of fake characters in it. We pasted this post into the input of this tool and fortunately, our suspicions were not confirmed, and the post is not fake. We got a green badge, which means the post was written using a real keyboard.

Just had the best brunch ever in the city! The avocado toast was on point and the latte art was Instagram-worthy. If you're in the area, definitely check it out! #brunchgoals #foodie #hiddenjewel #latteart

Preview Spoofed Characters

Today we received a strange message on our phone from an unknown number. To check if this message was written in such a style to avoid spam filters, we uploaded it to the spoofed text verification tool. As we suspected, the program shows that this message is a spoof, as it contains many letters from other non-English alphabets. By activating the "Preview Spoofs" option, we were able to visually see all the letters from other alphabets and learned a lesson that we need to be careful with messages from strangers.

Print Information About All Spoofed Symbols

In this example, we're checking an email that was sent to us from an unknown address. The text visually appears harmless, but as soon as we upload it here, we immediately see that the email is a forgery. To see the forgery details, we choose the "Print Detailed Summary" mode and find that there are 37 spoofed characters in the text, including fake letters, symbols, and even empty zero-width space characters.
