WhatsApp gave the answer on the privacy policy, said – Ola, Zomato, Aarogya Setu also take data, so the question is only why from us?

WhatsApp Update: Instant Messenger WhatsApp has been in controversy for the last few months regarding its new privacy policy. Previously this policy was to be implemented from February 8, but the company postponed it for a few months in view of the growing objection and controversy of the users.

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.

According to the report of Inc42, WhatsApp has said in response to a petition filed in the Delhi High Court against its privacy policy update that many Internet-based apps and websites have similar policies. Not only this, some companies collect more data from users.

The Facebook-owned instant messaging app in its affidavit in court on May 5 cited Big Basket, Koo, Ola, Truecaller and Zomato as well as the privacy policy of the government’s contact tracing app Aarogya Setu.

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.

According to the report, WhatsApp has told the court that if its new privacy policy is blocked in India, other companies will also be affected by this decision. WhatsApp claims that if a verdict comes against it, the grocery app offering services in India and online doctor appointing apps will also be affected.

On the new privacy policy, WhatsApp has said that it is only for business account. WhatsApp will only read the chatting from the business account and share it with the parent company Facebook.

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.
