WhatsApp, a Meta-owned social media platform launched a new global security centre for users to learn more about how to protect themselves against spammers and unwanted contact, as it faces scrutiny over the menace of international spam calls and messages.

The company has developed an online resource to raise awareness about safety measures and product features that empower users to take control of their safety. The security centre will be accessible in English as well as 10 other languages, including Hindi, Punjabi, Kannada, Bengali, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Marathi, Gujarati, and Urdu.
About international spam calls
Last month, the instant messaging platform responded to the problem of international scam calls in India after the government acknowledged the issue that was impacting numerous WhatsApp users. These scam calls, originating from international numbers, particularly from African and Southeast Asian countries, along with fake messages from unknown users, inundated WhatsApp users across the country. To address this issue, the platform has strengthened its machine learning (ML) and artificial intelligence (AI) systems, resulting in a significant reduction in such incidents.
