WhatsApp has been taking several measures of late to enhance its security. The Meta-owned company has now launched a new global Security Center which will help users to learn more about ways to protect themselves. According to the company, this will act as a one-stop shop for users and help them protect against spammers and unwanted contact.
"WhatsApp has created this page to build awareness about the various safety measures and in-built product features that empower users to take control of their safety as well as more information on the ‘behind-the-scenes’ technology we use to run a simple, reliable, private and safe service," the company said.
The Security Center will be available in English and 10 Indian languages i.e. Hindi, Punjabi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Kannada, Bengali, Marathi, Urdu and Gujarati.
