Due to spam messages, users are facing a lot of trouble ranging from promotional content to fraudulent content. Many users around the world have also become victims of fraud through spam messages.

To avoid such spam messages, WhatsApp has introduced a new feature, through which users will be able to take action against spam messages from their lock screen and block them.
