As per a report released by the world’s most popular messaging app, Whatspp banned close to 2.2 million users in September. These users were banned for violating the chatting app’s security rules. With WhatsApp broadening its offerings into the payments industry, the brand has to weed out sketchy users to ensure the safety of everyone else using the platform.
WhatsApp May Ban More Accounts
A spokesperson from WhatsApp issued a statement about the brand banning close to 2.2 million people. “WhatsApp is an industry leader in preventing abuse, among end-to-end encrypted messaging services. Over the years, we have consistently invested in Artificial Intelligence and other state of the art technology, data scientists and experts, and in processes, in order to keep our users safe on our platform”.
With this in mind, it is safe to assume that this won’t be the last surge in banning accounts. If the company deems any user as someone who violates their policies, they may ban them.
More WhatsApp updates
Whatsapp has recently been in the news for releasing many updates designed to enhance user privacy and overall convenience. It makes perfect sense for the platform to remove so many users (and to continue doing so) for the sake of growing its business globally.
