In the MCU prime universe canon, what level of knowledge about the Snap does the general populace have? - Students Cheating During an Exam

In the prime MCU universe, the one in the same universe as the movies, what level of knowledge does the general population of Earth have about the snap/Blip.

For example, do they know that it was caused by an alien warlord using mystical artifacts from the dawn of time, and that the Avengers travelled to the past through the quantum realm to reverse it. Or were they told an inaccurate version of events to prevent panic?

Can their level of knowledge be demonstrated in universe, for example using dialog from the various MCU properties, or out of universe using statements/interviews from the writers, cast, promotional material, etc?

To try and become whole again, try and find purpose. I went in the ice in '45 right after I met the love of my life. Woke up 70 years later. You gotta move on. Gotta to move on. The world is in our hands. It's left to us guys, and we got to do something with it. Otherwise... Thanos should have killed all of us.

Whether the mechanism of the Snap/Blip is generally known is not really covered but it seems unlikely that the Avengers would have gone into great detail.

Plus they seem aware that Tony, Natasha, Cap & Vision are "dead".
