The CCI has launched an investigation and has labeled the current WhatsApp policy as “exploitative.”

The Competition Commission of India (CCI) has opened an inquiry into WhatsApp’s latest privacy policy, which was also being investigated by the courts. The antitrust body has concluded that WhatsApp, which is owned by Facebook, is in violation of India’s Competition Act. It also requested the director general to open an antitrust inquiry under Section 26 (1) of the Competition Act and come back within 60 days. The investigation into the instant messaging platform’s practices follows a number of regulatory actions taken by Indian regulators against Big Tech firms, as well as increased criticism of the messaging platform’s revised terminology.
