WhatsApp bans accounts sharing fake news

WhatsApp says it has banned over 2 million accounts every month for the last three months in its efforts against fighting fake news and platform abuse.

According to the company, these efforts are particularly important during elections where certain groups may attempt to send messages at level.

“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,” WhatsApp said in a statement on Thursday.
