Did You See WhatsApp’s Status. It’s for your data & privacy

Messaging App Giant, WhatsApp is again reaching out to users, this time via WhatsApp Statuses, to reiterate that the company respects users’ privacy.

The WhatsApp Status comes days after Facebook announced that it is delaying its privacy policy changes rollout amid “confusion” and “misinformation.”

The new date has been set to May 15 instead of February 8. The introductory WhatsApp Status slide reads “We are committed to your privacy,” followed by it reiterating, “WhatsApp can’t read or listen to your personal conversations as they’re end-to-end encrypted.” The third slide states “WhatsApp can’t see your shared location” and the last one notes, “WhatsApp doesn’t share your contacts with Facebook.” Notably, these claims echo WhatsApp’s full-page newspaper advertisement in India that was put out last week.

However, analysts have pointed out that Facebook’s claims in the advert (and same on the latest WhatsApp Status) contradict the updated Terms of Service. According to WhatsApp’s new privacy policy, certain information such as mobile phone number, email address, and profile name is shared with Facebook to customize the experience for the user. The company would also collect location information at all times. Hence, many are criticizing this change as the company is not providing relevant options for those who do not wish to provide such information. Amid all the backlash, competitors like Telegram and Signal are witnessing massive downloads.

Meanwhile, the Confederation of All India Traders has filed a plea in the Supreme Court, seeking a direction to roll back the privacy policy on the ground that it is violative of laws and can impact the country’s security. The petition filed through advocate Vivek Narayan Sharma says the PIL was necessitated due to the failure of the Centre in carrying out its constitutional duty and responsibility to protect the rights to privacy and freedom of speech and expression of the citizens of India.
