Can you get in trouble for editing a wikipedia page with false information?

Maybe, maybe not. It would be up to the owner of Wikipedia to determine what to do with you, if anything. Other than public shaming or criminal prosecution, what they will do is ban you from using Wikipedia.

No, not really as its an open platform that anyone can use and there just isn't enough evidence/grounds to stand on for anyone including the company to be able to track you down and incriminate you.Source(s): Information Systems Administrator, Microsoft Certified Systems Engineer

On Wikipedia, there's no true or false information. There's only being on the right or wrong side of an edit war.

Probably, but you could always say you thought what you were writing was correct! Unless you were really writing complete gibberish then that would expose your true intention
