How does WhatsApp ban account?
WhatsApp states that before any suspicious activity occurs in the account, its system usually captures it and closes it. For this, WhatsApp uses artificial intelligence and machine learning. For example, the security system of WhatsApp tells about the use of an unsecured computer network. WhatsApp claims that because of this, it closes such accounts before sending the message. 20% account bans are caught at the time of registration.
WhatsApp keeps checking the behavior of the accounts whose registration is completed. Although all the messages on its messenger app are encrypted. But still it is possible to catch such an account even by the behavior of using an account. Normally users take time. But if messages are being forwarded very fast in an account, then their system catches it. The company gave an example that if an account is registered 5 minutes ago and tries to send 100 messages in 15 seconds, then it is considered in the category of System Abuse. With this, if someone creates dozens of groups, then this category is also comes in.
