Steps taken by Indian Government for WhatsApp Consumers
The Government of India believes that this policy is brought such changes which are not fair. These changes will become a problem to the privacy of people. However, such policies are not acceptable. The Ministry of Electronics and Information Technology has wrote a letter to CEO of WhatsApp for the withdrawal of this policy. The Government believe that nobody can snatch the privacy of people from them. People have freedom of choice and data security. If they accept the changes made by company then their privacy will be ruined. Indian market is one of the most growing WhatsApp users market in the world. Almost every citizen of the country is using WhatsApp these days. But if such policies come in the market they will become threat for the communication.
WhatsApp new claim
Recently users have seen a status updated by WhatsApp itself which shows that people need not to worry about their privacy. The company will only utilize the data for chatting with business accounts, which further helps in serving targeted ads. Also they claims that messages are end to end encrypted. However, on the decision taken by Indian Government WhatsApp has not given any response. So we could just wait for the further decisions by the company as well as the government.
