The creator of the World Wide Web has warned of big Internet dangers. He said people are misusing the web. The first danger is companies are creating fake news to make money or change politics. He said fake news "spreads like wildfire". The second danger is political advertising used in "unethical ways". It can stop voters from voting. His final worry is the misuse of personal data. Governments kill people because of the websites they use.

Tim Berners-Lee invented the web in 1989. His vision was for a platform that would let everyone, everywhere share information, access opportunities and work together across borders and cultures. He said there were now difficult problems with no simple answers. He wants to return control of personal data to people and stop governments from misusing it. He said this affects free speech. He also wants to fight fake news. He asked all Internet users to help.
