    WhatsApp proclaimed controls on its service in India on Friday in an effort to stop a wave of horrific lynchings and to assuage government threats of legal action in its biggest market.

    More than 20 people have been killed by mobs in the past two months across the country after being accused of child kidnapping and other crimes in viral messages circulated on WhatsApp.

    It addition, it said it will "remove the quick forward button next to media messages," a statement said.

    We believe that these changes -- which we’ll continue to evaluate  will help keep WhatsApp the way it was designed to be a private messaging app.
