A fake message is spreading on WhatsApp, which talks about government control over the instant messaging app. “Two blue ticks and one red tick mean the government can take action, while three red ticks will mean the government has initiated court proceedings against you,” the message claims. This message is completely wrong, because WhatsApp has not made any changes in its system regarding the tick. The message appears to spread confusion amid the legal battle between WhatsApp and the Indian government over recently introduced IT rules in the country.

This fake WhatsApp message is spreading through groups and the instant messaging platform has called it ‘Forwarded many times‘, which means that this message has been forwarded multiple times. The message is completely fake and what is said in it is also completely wrong. The message says that WhatsApp is introducing new communication rules for messages and calls, which will tie the device to the government. It also said that the new system will allow law officials to take action against people posting messages and videos against the government.

Let us tell you that WhatsApp has not released any such feature and update. The message says that seeing a red tick with two blue ticks means that the government can take action on your message and three red ticks means that the government has taken action, but it is not so, WhatsApp’s tick system Still same as before. This means that you will see the same gray and blue ticks as before.

It is also important to note that WhatsApp keeps its users’ chats and calls end-to-end encrypted, which means that the company does not store these data on its servers nor can anyone see or listen to them.
