WhatsApp bans 2.4 million Indian accounts in July 



WhatsApp banned 2.39 million Indian accounts in July, the loftiest so far this time, the Meta-possessed popular moment messaging app said late on Thursday in its yearly report.

The Asian nation’s stricter IT laws have made it necessary for large digital platforms to publish compliance reports every month.

Draft rules circulated in June proposed setting up a panel to hear stoner prayers, and said that significant social media messaging platforms shall allow identification of the first originator of information if directed by courts to do so.

Of the accounts barred, 1.42 million were “proactively banned,” before any reports from druggies.

Several accounts were banned grounded on complaints entered through the company’s grievances channel and the tools and coffers it uses to descry similar offenses, the social media platform said. In July, WhatsApp entered a aggregate of 574 grievance reports.

The messaging platform, which has been criticised before for spreading fake news and hate speech in the country, as well as away in the world, had taken down 2.21 million accounts in India in June.
