WhatsApp closes three user accounts in India for hacking and makes it clear that it will continue to do so whenever necessary.

For a few days, the instant messaging application WhatsApp has closed several user accounts that had shared illegal content through its app. The social network has set a precedent that can affect millions of people in the world and despite the fact that piracy and the distribution of films have decreased notably, in some countries piracy continues to be the order of the day.

The closure of accounts has happened in India, where it seems that piracy is still on the rise, despite all the measures that have been interposed in recent years to prevent precisely the traffic of illegal content.

WhatsApp closes several user accounts

The WhatsApp app has taken a step forward and has made it clear that it will no longer tolerate the piracy that has been taking place in its application. That is why it has suspended three user accounts who had used the app to illegally share a movie. An order from an Indian court has issued the sanction after the production company Zee Entertainment Enterprises detected that the film Radhe: Your Most Wanted Bhai was being sent through WhatsApp.

It is the first time that something like this has happened, but it has set a precedent. With this, the company has wanted to make it clear that it will not tolerate abuse by users. The marked conditions must be met if you do not want an account suspension.

The producer, on the other hand, has also denounced this act before Facebook, owner of WhatsApp, without giving a response. But now this situation could make the social network change since it has been precisely a court order that has issued the sanction. Will they take tougher measures on the Facebook app as well?

The company makes it clear that the marked conditions must be met

At the moment in which we download any type of application, especially in the case of social networks, we must accept a series of conditions set by the company that created the app. 

Due to the situation that has been experienced in India, WhatsApp has wanted to remind all its users of the obligation to comply with the marked conditions that are accepted when starting to download and install the application.
