WhatsApp suspended over 2 million accounts in India in September, here is why

TEMPO.CO, Jakarta – In the latest monthly transparency report released to comply with information technology regulations, Whatsapp has blocked approximately 2.209 million accounts in India. This is done to prevent online abuse and to keep the users’ online experience safe and spam free.

The account is blocked due to complaints from users and letters from the complaints officer India. “We also use our automated tools to prevent malicious behavior on the platform,” said the report published on Monday, November 1st, 2021.

In the report, the request of Meta– the new name for the renaming of Facebook – confirmed a total of 309 users and the Indian complaints officer in September, where 50 accounts were “traded”. The remaining 2.209 million blocked accounts were detected by WhatsApp’s own tools to stop malicious behavior on the platform.

These tools, WhatsApp said, are capable of detecting abuse at three stages of an account’s lifestyle – at registration, during messaging, and in response to negative feedback it receives in the form of reports and user blocks. In a statement, a WhatsApp spokesman said the transparency report was the fourth monthly report for the September period.

“This user security report contains details of received user complaints and related measures that WhatsApp has taken, as well as WhatsApp’s own precautions to combat abuse on our platform,” said the spokesman.

In August, the app with the mobile phone logo blocked a total of 2.06 million accounts in India. In the month a total of 420 user inquiries were received from users and the Indian complaints officer.

Of these, 222 were objections to the ban, 105 inquiries about account support and 76 reports received on WhatsApp about products and other support. There are also 17 reports WhatsApp has received related to security.
