WhatsApp's new privacy policy:  Central government's affidavit in Delhi High Court says company pressures users for policy, opposes law






The Center on Thursday filed an affidavit in the Delhi High Court on WhatsApp's new privacy policy. The Center has told the High Court that WhatsApp is misusing its capabilities. Users are being pressured for a policy. The company is sending frequent notifications to its users. It is against the order of the Competition Commission of India dated March 24, 2021. The Center has demanded that the court issue an interim order on the notification issued regarding the new privacy policy.

The new policy is being imposed on users:
WhatsApp's privacy policy has been implemented in many countries, including India, since May 15. The government has also opposed the new policy. But so far no change has been seen. The government has since told the court that WhatsApp is imposing its new policy on users and is adopting a different trick to get users to accept it. The company is cleverly trying to get users to accept the policy before the data protection bill becomes law.
