The number of Indian accounts blocked by WhatsApp in July was 2.39 million, the most this year, according to a report released late on Thursday by the Meta-owned company. As per report, in the month of july 2022, WhatsApp Banned More than 2.4 Million Indian Accounts.
Let’s Dive into the details about WhatsApp Banned Indian Accounts:
Large internet platforms now have to publish compliance reports each month due to India’s tighter IT legislation.
Draft regulations that were made public in June suggested creating a panel to hear user appeals and stated that major social media messaging platforms must permit the identification of the first author of information if ordered to do so by courts.
1.42 million of the blocked accounts were “proactively banned,” meaning they were suspended without user complaints.
According to the social media platform, a number of accounts were banned as a result of complaints made via the business’s grievances channel and the tools and resources it employs to identify such infractions. WhatsApp received a total of 574 reports of complaints in July.
The messaging app, which has previously come under fire for promoting fake news and hate speech both within India and outside the world, removed 2.21 million accounts in June.
