Supreme court sent a notice to Facebook and Whatsapp on their new privacy policy

New Delhi, 15/2 (AO Bureau): In relation to the new privacy policy, the Supreme Court has sent a notice to Facebook and Whatsapp, seeking a reply. The Supreme Court told WhatsApp and Facebook that people’s privacy is very important. You can be a two-three trillion-dollar company, but people fear that their data is being sold elsewhere. It is our duty to protect the privacy of the people.

Public interest litigation has stated that the new privacy policy of WhatsApp and Facebook is violating people’s privacy and data is being leaked. It has been alleged that WhatsApp and Facebook have different criteria for Europe and there are different rules for India, this is not true. The Supreme Court has summoned the reply from both companies.
Significantly, CAT’s national president BC Bhartia and national general secretary Praveen Khandelwal alleged that WhatsApp has adopted the ‘My Way or High Way’ approach, which is arbitrary, unfair, unconstitutional. It cannot be accepted in a democratic country like India. WhatsApp is fraudulently collecting personal user data. At the time of its launch in India, WhatsApp attracted users based on a promise not to share data and strong privacy principles.
