On the other hand, the Parliamentary Committee summoned the officials of Internet media giant Facebook and Twitter on 21 January.
IT Minsitry writes to WhatsApp CEO:
According to sources, Cathcart has been asked to answer the government's questions about privacy, data transfer and sharing policies.
Let us know that WhatsApp had recently sent a notification to the users to update their policy. It said that to continue using WhatsApp, the new policy would have to be approved by February 8.
Ever since this notification surfaced, a discussion arose in the internet media that the privacy of users threatened after the new policy of WhatsApp. Under the new policy, WhatsApp will share the data of users with other apps and products of Facebook. WhatsApp is constantly denying it.
Both Signal and Telegram have benefited from this exodus, so much so that both services seem to be struggling to handle the influx of new users — Signal services were disrupted on Friday.
