In July, WhatsApp Banned Around 24 lakh Indian Accounts And 'Proactively' Disabled 14 Lakh Accounts: Complete Information!

According to WhatsApp’s monthly compliance report, the company deleted roughly 24 lakh accounts in India in July. The Meta-owned messaging service, which is considered an intermediate by the IT Rules, releases monthly data on the measures taken against platform accounts.

WhatsApp claims that 14 lakh accounts were “proactively” blocked, meaning they were deleted without user complaints.

Facebook and Instagram disclosed on Wednesday that 2.7 crore postings on their respective social media networks were deleted in July.

WhatsApp just released a report titled “India Monthly Report under the Information Technology (Intermediary Guidelines and Digital Media Ethics Code) Rules, 2021,” which states that in July, the messaging app banned around 23,87,000 accounts in India.

According to WhatsApp, the accounts were banned as a result of user reports submitted through the company’s mandatory grievance redressal system, which is required by the IT Rules, as well as reports from its own systems that track down accounts that are in violation of its terms of service.

It’s important to note that the number of accounts the firm has deleted is at its highest level since over 18 lakh accounts were banned in March.

In April and May, the corporation, respectively, deleted 16 lakh and 19 lakh accounts. Meanwhile, in June, 22 lakh accounts were barred.

In accordance with the IT Rules’ mandated grievance redressal system, WhatsApp is also required to acknowledge and respond to user complaints. The company claims that it received 574 user reports and responded to 27 of them.

Account ban appeals received the most user reports, and the firm claims to have taken action on 27 of these accounts. While this was going on, the business flagged 116 reports for account support, 13 reports for safety, and other reports as not being taken further.

In its compliance report for July, released on Wednesday, Meta disclosed that it had taken down more than 2.7 crore posts from Facebook and Instagram.

In an effort to adhere to the government’s rules for social media platforms, Facebook, which is considered an intermediary under the IT Rules, removed 1.73 crore spam messages and 23 lakh posts with violent and graphic content.
