News Claim: Fake news is circulating on all social network platforms. By spreading and sharing fake news on WhatsApp, it is being claimed that the messaging app WhatsApp has introduced a new tick system. In which claims are being made about one red tick and three red ticks and two blue ticks.
It has been claimed that "two blue ticks and one red tick means the government can take action against them, while three red ticks will mean that the government has started court proceedings against you". Three blue ticks mean that the government has taken the note. One blue and two red ticks mean that the government is screening your data.” It is also being claimed that the government is recording your WhatsApp calls and messages. You do not need to panic with such a message, it is fake and false news
This fake message is getting people on WhatsApp with the label "Forward Many Times". In which it is being claimed that WhatsApp has implemented new communication rules after the new IT rules are implemented after May 26. The message is being claimed that under the new rules of WhatsApp, the government will record all calls and social media accounts will also be monitored by the Government of India. It is being said that if any WhatsApp user shares any wrong information or the government speaks wrong on any religious issue, then it can also be arrested.
