WhatsApp users all throughout the country have been harassed by an increasing danger of annoying calls from foreign numbers for many days. Rajeev Chandrasekhar, minister of state for information technology, recognized the problem and promised to inform WhatsApp.

WhatsApp has since released a statement in response. A representative for WhatsApp said, “We continue to provide several safety tools within WhatsApp, such as Block & Report, build user safety education and awareness, and proactively remove bad actors from our platform.”

The representative said that scammers are always coming up with new strategies to trick customers, but added that international hoax calls are still a relatively new strategy. The representative warned: “By leaving a missed call, they tempt curious users to call or text back, whereupon they are victimized.” According to a statement, WhatsApp has swiftly improved its AI and machine learning algorithms in an effort to decrease such incidences.

“We anticipate being able to successfully manage the present incidence because of our increased enforcement, which will lower the contact rate by at least 50%. To make sure our users are protected, we will keep up our relentless efforts.
