Centre urges Delhi HC to restrain WhatsApp from implementing new privacy policy


The central government has urged Delhi HC to restrain WhatsApp from implementing its new privacy policy and terms of service, according to a tweet from ANI.

The Indian government had also asked Facebook-owned messaging platform Whatsapp to review the new proposed privacy policy changes, Minister of State for IT and Communications Sanjay Dhotre informed the Lok Sabha on Wednesday.

The platform was subject to criticism all over the world due to the new privacy policy. The concerns that WhatsApp planned to share data with its parent company Facebook led to various allegations on the platform.

WhatsApp, on its part, has maintained that messages on the platform are end-to-end encrypted and that neither WhatsApp nor Facebook can see the private messages on WhatsApp’s platform.
