Every person uses Whatsapp in today’s era. But perhaps very few people will know how to use WhatsApp safely. Let us know which message should not be sent from WhatsApp, which can send you to jail. In such a situation, care should be taken while sending some WhatsApp messages.
Do not send inflammatory messages on WhatsApp.
If you send the piracy link of any film on WhatsApp or the scheme to double the money in 21 days, then your account can be closed. Your question will be that WhatsApp’s message is encrypted, so how will you know what is written in the news? If you think so, then tell that it will be in that situation if someone files a complaint against your message. Also, do not send offensive messages with intimidation, bullying on WhatsApp. This can be dangerous to do. If you base your message and file a complaint with the police station, you may be in jail.
You can be jailed for forwarding these messages.
Do not send inflammatory messages to anyone on What’s App, which can provoke riots. Also, do not encourage anyone to commit suicide on What’s App. Please do not write any such message on WhatsApp nor forward it because it comes under the purview of crime. There will be legal action against you under the Indian Penal Court, i.e., under the various IPC sections exchanging wrong messages.
Also, there is a provision for equal punishment, assuming the message forwarder is equally guilty. The Madras High Court had said in its 2018 judgment that forwarding the wrong message is equivalent to accepting and delivering the message.
Do not create a fake account by mistake.
Do not harass people by creating fake accounts on WhatsApp. Those who harass people with counterfeit accounts are considered to be under the purview of the crime. If someone complains about your fake account, you may have to go to jail.
Do not send bulk messages on WhatsApp.
The process of adding bulk messages to multiple people should be stopped by creating bulk messages. Because sending thousands of messages from these bulk groups will not only close your account, but police action can be taken against you. Bulk messages are considered against WhatsApp policy. What’s App identifies accounts that send bulk messages with the help of machine learning. Action will also be taken against them.
Do not try to hack software.
If you are a software engineer, do not forget to make this mistake. Because trying to hack WhatsApp software is considered a severe crime. A lengthy legal notice can be sent against the company for hacking Whats App software.
