WhatsApp limits message forwarding for all users

The instant messaging service has imposed a limit on the number of people that a user can forward a message to.


Months ago, after rumours spread via WhatsApp and led to killings and lynching attempts in India, Facebook implemented a restriction for users in that country. That same restriction is now being extended to all WhatsApp users around the world.

As such, from today, a message cannot be forwarded to more than 5 recipients. WhatsApp says the new global limit is to curb “misinformation and rumours”.

“We’re imposing a limit of five messages all over the world as of today,” Victoria Grand, vice president for policy and communications at WhatsApp, said today at an event in the Indonesian capital. Previously, a WhatsApp user could forward a message to 20 individuals or groups.
