WhatsApp’s new data privacy policy has been challenged

in the Delhi High Court. Advocate Chaitanya Rohilla has filed

a petition against it. It says that the new WhatsApp policy is a

violation of the right to privacy given to India’s people. It is illegal to share user data.

No monitoring of the activity of WhatsApp

The petition said that the new WhatsApp policy means that

people’s online activity will always be monitored. All of this will

happen without government oversight. Therefore, WhatsApp policy

should be immediately banned.

Court directs the government to make guidelines.
Rohilla also requested the court to direct the Ministry of Electronics

and IT to make guidelines so that WhatsApp users’ data could not be

shared with Facebook or any other company. There is currently no data

monitoring authority. Therefore, users are entirely dependent on the

privacy policy of the company. Advocate Rohilla says that India has

signed the International Rule on Civil and Political Rights (ICCPR).

Therefore, data security is the responsibility of the government.
