WhatsApp, a US-based messaging platform, banned over 1.75 million Indian accounts in November last year for allegedly misusing its service, according to the company’s sixth user safety monthly report released on January 2.
After receiving complaints from other users, the company’s abuse detection technology, which monitors user actions, removed the Indian accounts.
The WhatsApp monthly report is published according to India’s Information Technology Rules 2021, which became effective in May and required large digital platforms with more than five million users to give monthly compliance reports on complaints received and measures taken.
The messenger service provider got 602 allegations of users violating its terms of service in November of last year. According to a WhatsApp representative, the firm has invested in AI and other cutting-edge technology to keep its customers safe on the network. In October of last year, WhatsApp got 500 complaints reports after two million Indian accounts were banned.
