WhatsApp says Indian users accounts will not be deleted if they don’t accept its ‘Privacy policy’

The Policy permits the Facebook owned company to share business information with third-party Apps, including its parent. With over 400 million subscribers, India is WhatsApp’s largest market.  Previously, the messaging platform had said that the privacy update which is for users of its business services does not compromise its end-to-end encryption. 

Reacting to the statement, Vijay Shekhar Sharma, Founder of homegrown Fintech company Paytm, tweeted “Remember we are the markets and we are the Target. If we reject, companies have to hear and offer palatable solutions to us Indians”

Separately, the Company has challenged an investigation by the Competition Commission of India (‘CCI’) concerning its Privacy policy on the grounds that it is not the competition watchdog’s purview to investigate the matter since the dispute is not concerning anti-competitive elements. The Delhi High Court asked the competition regulator to reply on the appeals of Facebook and WhatsApp against a single Judge order that dismissed the plea earlier.
