WhatsApp is a new reminder notification that indicates that it will not change the privacy of a user’s personal conversation. Privacy remains encrypted end-to-end and remains unchanged. This makes it easier for businesses to chat using Facebook tools, he adds. He also states that chatting with these companies is optional and will be categorized by the app.
The government on WhatsApp in India?
As a reminder, India’s Supreme Court recently asked WhatsApp and the center to file a response to a petition alleging that the Indians have lower privacy standards than their European counterparts, and the Supreme Court said: “People are very concerned about losing their privacy and it is our duty to protect them.”
The center said during the hearing that social media apps like WhatsApp cannot share user data and must protect all user data. Meanwhile, WhatsApp said the company would comply if a similar law to the GDPR is introduced in India.
