WhatsApp’s new privacy policy has been heard in the Delhi High Court today. This is the time, when the petitioner told the court that in Europe and America, WhatsApp gives the option to accept or reject the policy. However, no such option has been given in India. The court says you have a choice. Do not use the app.

During the hearing, the court asked the petitioner, ‘What is your complaint? This is a personal application, don’t get involved. Do you think that data is going to compromise? “WhatsApp shares information worldwide. What they collect from us is shared,” said a consultant on behalf of the applicant.

The court told the petitioner’s advice that there were two issues. One is that your personal messages are viewed and shared. The second is to share your browsing history. Lawyers said they analyzed the browsing history to create an opinion about the user and share it. The court said all apps do it.

ASG Chetan Sharma, appearing for the Ministry of Information and Broadcasting, told the court that the matter needed to be analyzed. During the hearing, Senior Advocate Mukul Rohatgi appeared on WhatsApp and said, “I submit that the app is completely safe to use.” The applicant should be assured that all chats between friends, relatives, etc. will be encrypted and secure.

I tell you that today’s hearing is over. The matter will now be heard on January 25.
