Recently, information has surfaced regarding WhatsApp banning users that are part of groups with suspicious names. Many users shared posts on Reddit to write about how they got banned because of being in a group that did not have an appropriate name.
Reddit use Mowe11 posted that users in his university group were permanently banned from WhatsApp. The ban was awarded since one of his friends changed the group name and it referred to the sexual abuse of children.
While users that have ccome forward and reported the bans were part of groups that had named themselves owing to common pranks, the issue is in line with WhatsApp’s fight against child exploitation. In a note shared by the messaging service on its official blog on February 6, 2019, WhatsApp said, To protect the privacy and security of our users. WhatsApp provides end-to-end encryption by default, which means only the sender and recipient can see the content of messages.
WhatsApp relies on all available unencrypted information including user reports to detect and prevent this kind of abuse. Among the available unecrypted information is the factor of group names, which, if flagged by WhatsApp’s machine learning algorithms, will lead to its users being banned from the platform. News18 reported.
How to Protect Your WhatsApp Group against Bans
Make sure your funny WhatsApp group name does not qualify as insensitve. In everyone’s best interest, browse through WhatsApp‘s security blog. And ensure that your usage of WhatsApp complies with the fair usage rules that the company has disclosed publicly.
If you are an admin: Ensure that only or co-admins of the group have the ability to alter a group’s details. So that users with nefarious intentions can not tweak the information and put you and your fellow users’ accounts at risk.
To do so, tap on the group name, go to group settings, tap on Edit group info, and select Admins only.
If you are user: Be sure to be careful about who can add to groups, and which groups are you being added to.
To filer this, open WhatsApp and head to Settings, tap on Account, select Privacy, access Groups and select My contacts except…. Using this, you can selectively allow a trusted few to add you to groups.
Every other group request will come to you as a private message, which gives an overview of the group you are being added to, including Group name, Image, and Group participants.
The feature allows you to verify whether you recognize the group as something you’re willing to be added to, and act accordingly.
