This launch comes right after the Meta (formerly Facebook) Platforms-owned instant messaging platform's campaign #TakeCharge which promoted the safe use of the internet.

The 'Safety in India' resource hub explains topics around online safety, privacy, and security. Additionally, it debunks common myths, creates awareness on how users can safeguard themselves from potential cyber scams in the digitally-connected world.

WhatsApp says it is on a mission to build awareness about the platform's in-built product features and other safety measures. Through the resource hub, the platform plans to highlight technologies that it deploys, along with the India-specific processes, that help prevent the spread of misinformation and any form of abuse on the platform.
