WhatsApp spam is getting out of control in India

WhatsApp has over 2 billion users around the world, and India alone accounts for a quarter of that userbase, touting over 500 million active accounts. Meta tried a lot of ways to monetize the service in the country, and its recent push to get businesses on the platform has proven to be a winner — at least for Meta. For users, not so much.

I’ve been getting an increasing number of spam messages on WhatsApp over the last two months, and it is now at a point where it is continually frustrating. What makes it worse is that all of these messages are from businesses that should not have been able to contact me in the first place.
