An appeal was made in the High Court regarding Whatsapp that the government should take action on the new policy of WhatsApp. In the petition, the new policy was termed as a violation of the privacy of users. But the High Court refused to issue any notice in this matter.
The Delhi High Court in its order said that WhatsApp is a private app. If anyone is having trouble with WhatsApp’s policy or if it affects the privacy of users, then he should leave it. The court has said in its order that there are many such apps with which users share their data. Even Google Maps captures the data of users. Recently, ever since WhatsApp has come out about its new policy update, it has to oppose it strongly.
The High Court has said that if anyone feels that using WhatsApp is a threat to his privacy, then he should leave this app. He can switch to some other app. In this, users are not being put under any kind of pressure. People angry with WhatsApp’s policy update are now turning to Telegram and Signal. Telegram and Signal have received several lakh downloads in the last few days.
