WhatsApp suspends 36 lakh accounts

According to Whatsapp, the business took the move after discovering that every banned account was generating suspicions and engaging in malicious activity. Hate speech, false news, and misinformation have all been used on WhatsApp in a number of recorded and well-documented incidents. Some people are worried about the recent trend of selectively removing content from internet sites and suspending user accounts. Three grievance appeal boards have just been established by the government in response, and they will start receiving user complaints against social media businesses on March 1st.
According to the data, WhatsApp received 1607 complaint reports. Out of those, 1459 appeals for bans were made, but only 164 of them were adequately addressed by WhatsApp. 13 safety-related reports were also received by the app, but no action was taken.
