Now as soon as the new IT minister takes over, WhatsApp has told the Delhi High Court that it has voluntarily withheld the update till a decision is taken. WhatsApp has also said that it will not pressurize the user to accept the policy nor will it disable any feature for users who have not accepted the policy.
Questions were also asked on data privacy from WhatsApp in Delhi High Court. The High Court asked WhatsApp that there is an allegation against you that you give the data of users to other companies. The court also said that WhatsApp has a different policy for India, while it is different for Europe, why so?
