KAMPALA – WhatsApp is removing at least two million accounts each month for bulk or bad behaviour and over 75 per cent of those without recent user reports.
According to international media reports the company said in a statement on Thursday February 7 that: “While there are many actors trying to abuse the free service we provide, we are constantly advancing our anti-abuse operations to keep the platform safe.”
Facebook’s owned firm is banning accounts that send a high volume of messages. WhatsApp also said: “…our systems can detect if a similar phone number has been recently abused or if the computer network used for registration has been associated with suspicious behaviour.”
The development comes at a time when the WhatsApp platform is increasingly being abused by users across the globe.
