NEW YORK – WhatsApp, a widely popular Meta-owned messaging app, banned 2.387 million Indian accounts in July for violating the laws of the country and social media app’s policy.

The company revealed it in its compliance report for the month of July 2022 issued in line with the Indian IT laws.

“The following report is published in accordance with Rule 4(1)(d) of the Information Technology (IpntermediaryGuidelines and Digital Media Ethics Code) Rules, 2021,” WhatsApp wrote in its report.
