Amid the raging privacy debate, India took up the issue of discriminatory treatment of Indian users vis-à-vis users in Europe by WhatsApp. The Ministry has said, “It is irresponsible, for WhatsApp to leverage this position to impose unfair terms and conditions on Indian users”
The High Court has adjourned the matter till 3 June.
In February, the High Court had issued notice on the plea.
“For the last several weeks we’ve displayed a notification in WhatsApp providing more information about the update. After giving everyone time to review, we’re continuing to remind those who haven’t had the chance to do so to review and accept. After a period of several weeks, the reminder people receive will eventually become persistent,” a WhatsApp FAQs page said.
At that time, you’ll encounter limited functionality on WhatsApp until you accept the updates. This will not happen to all users at the same time, it had added.
