WhatsApp :

On Monday, Meta-owned WhatsApp said that, in accordance with the IT (Intermediary Guidelines and Digital Media Ethics Code) Rules, 2021, over 76 lakh accounts were banned in India during the month of February.

According to the company’s monthly compliance report, over the period of February 1–29, 7,628,000 WhatsApp accounts were banned, with 1,424,000 of those accounts being terminated proactively—that is, before any user complains.

With over 500 million users, the messaging platform in the nation received a record 16,618 complaint complaints in February of this year, of which 22 were “actioned”.

“Accounts Actioned” describes cases in which WhatsApp acted upon the information in the report, perhaps reversing a prior ban or banning an account altogether.

“We address every complaint we receive, with the exception of those that are thought to be duplicates of earlier tickets. According to the firm, “an account is ‘actioned’ when it is suspended or reinstated after being banned due to a complaint.

The business blocked “6,728,000 accounts” on WhatsApp between January 1 and January 31. Prior to any user reports, almost 1,358,000 of these accounts were proactively banned.

Apart from safety measures and regulations, the firm claims that “we employ a team of engineers, data scientists, analysts, researchers, and experts in law enforcement, online safety, and technology developments to oversee these efforts.”
