Here's How-to Report 'dangerous' accounts on WhatsApp

As per the report, WhatsApp banned 2,210,000 Indian accounts during this period. Here are the details why accounts are banned on WhatsApp, how to get in touch with a grievance officer on the platform and more. WhatsApp has banned these accounts based on complaints it received from users in India via the grievance mechanisms on its platform. 

WhatsApp says that accounts are banned for violating the laws of India or WhatsApp's Terms of Service. 

How can users complain about accounts they want WhatsApp to ban

Users can send emails to about accounts that they think violate WhatsApp’s Terms of Service or have content that is against the law of the land. They can also send questions about accounts on WhatsApp that are published in the Help Center. These mails can also be sent via post to WhatsApp's India Grievance Officer.

Anything specific that needs to be included in these emails

To contact the Grievance Officer, please send an email with complaint or concern and sign with an electronic signature. If a user is contacting WhatsApp about a specific account, please include the phone number in full international format, including the country code.

What happens when you report/complain about an account or group on WhatsApp

WhatsApp receives the last five messages sent to that user by the reported account or group. To safeguard the privacy of the person who complains the account reported is not notified about the same. WhatsApp also receives information on when certain message/messages were sent, and the type of message sent (image, video, text, etc.) by the reported group or user account. 

Is there any button on WhatsApp to instantly report about a 'dangerous' account

Users can also choose to report/complain about an account by long pressing on a single message. Long pressing on a message throws a series of options including 'Report'. On Clicking on 'Report', users are given two options: 'Report' or 'Report and Block'. The sender is not notified about the option they choose.
