Letter to CEO of WhatsApp
Rethink your perspective whatsapp
The ministry has said that WhatsApp should roll back the proposed changes. At the same time, our approach to information privacy, freedom of choice and data security should be revisited. The ministry has said that Indians should be properly respected. Any unilateral change in WhatsApp’s terms of service and policy is not fair and will not be accepted.
What is WhatsApp’s new policy?
WhatsApp users who upload, submit, store, send or receive content, the company can use it anywhere. The company can also share that data. This policy was to come into force from 8 February 2021. However, the deadline has been extended to 15 May after controversy escalated. It was previously claimed that if the user does not ‘Agree’ this policy, then he will not be able to use his account. However, the company later called it optional.
