Last year, WhatsApp spread a lot of fraudulent news and caused a huge problem. To prevent this, some restrictions were made to forwarding messages. Accordingly, a person restricted a message to be limited to forward only five times with a label "Forwarded". In this situation, a new method has been introduced to find fake messages for the election. Checkpoint Tip-line has been introduced to ensure the truthfulness of messages coming up in Whatsapp.
The Election Commission has imposed tight restrictions on social networking sites as it is currently elections being ahead. Whatsapp has also been trying to control rumors. In that sense, Whatsapp checkpoint Tip line has been introduced. Checkpoint Number is + 91-9643000888. If you have any false information, or any other fake message, the user can submit it to + 91-9643000888. The Checkpoint Center will ensure that the information is valid and will be sent to the users.
All the information that is send by user is relevant, whether it is true or ruminant or problematic is checked by Whatsapp. Currently it is operated in languages including English, Telugu, Hindi and Malayalam. Soon it is expected to be brought in most languages.
