WhatsApp deleted and blocked 1.30 million accounts, this is the reason

WhatsApp has not only deleted accounts, but the company has shared these accounts with the American National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. The purpose is that if the agency needs information related to child pornography then it can be found.

These days Whatsapp is in the news about child pornography, not because of its features. There have been reports continuously for some time since several countries including India are making groups for child pornography on Whatsapp. These groups are also being made to share such content with clutter.

Now Whatsapp has taken action and more than 1lakh 30 thousand accounts have been blocked and deleted. In the last 10 days, the company has started removing these accounts from Whatsapp. Last year, the company had said that such accounts were sorted out of support of Artificial Intelligence. WhatsApp found these accounts through AI tools and then they were deleted due to illegal activity.

It is worth noting that WhatsApp's chats are endless and encrypted. This security means that only messages and content sent on the Whatsapp can be viewed or read only by the sender and the receiver. Not only this, the company can not even read them. That's why Whatsapp is supporting AI for illegal content. This tool checks for un-encrypted information of Whatsapp account. These include profile photos, group profile photos, and group information.

Whatsapp also uses a tool called PhotoDNA, which Facebook uses. Under this, porn and abusive images are identified and potential Whatsapp groups or users who share it they will get banned.
Whatsapp spokesman said in a statement after reports of child Pornography, 'WhatsApp maintains zero tolerance policy on Child Sexual Abuse. We have installed our most advanced technology to deal with it, including Artificial Intelligence. We have also responded to investigating agencies of India and other countries. Since app stores and communication services are being used to spread Abuse content, so tech companies have to work together to deal with this.

A recent report said that the names of the Whatsapp group are being searched through third-party apps. Whatsapp has said in its reply, the Whatsapp does not offer any features that can be searched for a group from a third-party app.

The Whatsapp app can also delete your account if you join such an illegal group. Since no one can add you to your group without permission, so be careful and report to the accounts or groups who share child pornography content.
