WhatsApp, Messaging app used by billions of people worldwide. Not just chatting but audio and video calling features. The number of people who use it day by day is growing significantly. The same level of misuse of the app is also being exposed. WhatsApp has resorted to corrective measures over the past year to reduce this.
As part of this, any WhatsApp group name or icon will be prohibited from using the WhatsApp group and its members without any prior information.
A member of the group changed the name of the university WhatsApp group to mean child sexual abuse. WhatsApp said that the group and all members of the group were suspended.
In this regard, they contacted WhatsApp and said they were banned for violating the terms. A week later, the group was restored without any information.
Another WhatsApp group of about fifty members has been renamed Why’s Discounting. WhatsApp banned all members within hours of changing it. Another user said the accounts were restored after a 27-day ban.
Many view this ban as an automated process. Experts believe that the server automatically removes the WhatsApp group’s icon and name by metadata.
However, due to end-to-end encryption feature on WhatsApp, it is difficult to distinguish between groups that spread untruths and hate stories. WhatsApp seems to have chosen this type of approach to find such illegal groups. However, this is due to the fact that one member of the group is suspended. If you are an administrator whatsap group names or icons are illegal, change them immediately. Otherwise you will have to be banned. Beware!
