Now, this policy is going to be implemented from May 15 (WhatsApp policy deadline). A Public Interest Litigation (PIL) has been filed in the Delhi High Court against the company’s policy, on which the company had to give its reply.
In the affidavit given by WhatsApp in the court, the user data being taken by other applications has been criticized. According to the report, WhatsApp has also named Google, Microsoft, Zoom and Republic World in its affidavit, which is a digital venture of Republic TV.
The new policy has nothing to do with private chat. Along with this, WhatsApp has also said that even after May 15, it will continue to send notifications to users to accept the policy and will not delete the accounts of users who do not accept the company’s policy.
After a few days, users will not be able to use some features of the app. Like- they will not be able to access their chat list. Apart from this, they will also not be able to respond to incoming and video calls on the app.
