Kazim Rizvi, founder, policy think tank, The Dialogue, said,”It is possible to take down accounts without breaking the end to end encryption,Whatsapp uses automated technology to detect spammy users.Like, If 100 messages are sent to unknown contacts within 15 seconds of registration, in such cases the platform may block the user……It is important to note that platforms cannot take down content due to end-to-end encryption and can only ban accounts.”
