WhatsApp reprimanded Supreme Court, write Supreme Court, give users date ...

15 February, Faridabad . Instant messaging app has been reprimanded by Supreme Court today amid controversy over WhatsApp’s new privacy policy. The Supreme Court has asked WhatsApp to give in writing that users’ data will not be shared with any third party. The court has issued notices to Facebook, Central Government and WhatsApp in the matter and postponed the next hearing of the case for four weeks.
The three-judge team headed by Chief Justice of India SA Bobde said, “People are very concerned about their privacy. You (WhatsApp) must be a company of two trillion or three trillion, but privacy is more important than your money. It is your duty to protect people’s privacy.
Let us tell you that the court has given this decision regarding the 2016 WhatsApp policy. Karmanya Singh Sarin filed a petition in the Supreme Court in 2016 against WhatsApp’s privacy policy. According to the petition, the data of users of instant messaging apps has been shared with Facebook ever since Facebook bought WhatsApp. The matter is pending with the constitutional team of the Supreme Court.
Shyam Dewan, counsel for the petitioner, also said in court that WhatsApp discriminates against Indian users as compared to European users. At the same time, senior advocate Kapil Sibal, who is pleading in the court on behalf of WhatsApp, said that no sensitive personal information is being shared with third parties. He also said that the case is still pending in the Delhi High Court.
Solicitor General Tushar Mehta, who was present in the court on behalf of the Center, told the apex court, ‘Whether there is a law or not, the right to privacy is part of the fundamental rights. WhatsApp should protect the right to privacy. They should not share data.
Let us tell you that under the new policy of WhatsApp, users can either accept it or they will have to stop using the app. Users do not have the option of using the app, with the company owned by Facebook opting not to share data with third parties.
