WhatsApp stated in its report that it was taking numerous initiatives to make the platform more secure and safe for its users. In addition to several privacy protections, the site provides a specific method for reporting abuse or other dangerous items.

WhatsApp also reviews all email reports and, if necessary, removes accounts “for breaching the laws of India or WhatsApp’s Terms of Service.”

In addition to user complaints, WhatsApp relies on automatic methods to identify spam or rogue users. “Abuse detection occurs at three points in an account’s life cycle: upon registration, during messaging, and in response to the negative input in the form of user reports and blocks.

A team of analysts enhance these systems to examine edge circumstances and help improve our performance over time,” states WhatsApp India Monthly Report.
