New Delhi: The Delhi High Court on Wednesday sought a response from the central government and social media platforms - Facebook and WhatsApp - on a PIL filed against WhatsApp's new privacy policy.

Whatsapp New Policy:

A bench of Chief Justice DN Patel and Justice Jasmeet Singh has issued notices to the Center, Facebook and WhatsApp asking them to put their side of the petition till May 13.

New privacy and updates:

WhatsApp told the bench that personal conversations of individuals are protected from end to end encryption. Petitioner Harsha Gupta urged the court to give some interim order as WhatsApp will give effect to its policy from May 15. In view of this, the court listed the matter for hearing on 13 May.

For information, tell that WhatsApp says that those who use the instant messaging app should accept the new privacy policy before February 15, otherwise you may face problems in running WhatsApp, and there may be a problem for the users. WhatsApp account should be closed. Please tell that in January 2021, the company changed its new privacy policy. Under this policy, many revised terms and conditions were rolled out for users.

May 15 is last date:

The company had said that this users will have to approve this policy. The company has not put any option to reject this policy in front of the users. WhatsApp's new privacy policy was to come into force from February 8, but this month the privacy policy is going to come into effect on May 15, 2021. After the dispute, WhatsApp postponed the privacy policy for three months.

WhatsApp is constantly giving notifications to its users regarding the privacy policy, that is, you have to accept WhatsApp's privacy policy before 15 May 2021.
