In Singapore, Older Smartphone Users Tap Facebook

In Singapore, Older Smartphone Users Tap Facebook

To have more clarity on the matter, the bench of Chief Justice G Rohini and Justice Sangita Dhingra Sehgal, who are hearing the PIL has asked Whatsapp to file an affidavit before September 20, which will state the factual standings of the new policy.

The Delhi high court on Wednesday sought WhatsApp's response over on a plea challenging its decision to share user data with parent company Facebook amid growing concerns over the popular instant messaging application's new privacy policy. It further said that the government regulations were in place and that Facebook does not have access to any data as it provides end-to-end encryption.

Additionally, he stated, "we only have access to the person's name and number which is also obtained by online consent".

Luthra refuted the petitioners' allegations that 13-year-olds or teenagers were using WhatsApp messenger and data can be misused. The petition has termed the privacy policy as an eyewash and blatant attempt to make users agree to their policy while installing and using the messenger app. "If any of the user wants to opt out of the new policy, he/she can not be forced to not choose that option". The messaging service gave its users 30 days till 25 September to opt out of the policy.

In his argument, Luthra revealed that there is no question of messages, photographs or documents getting shared with Facebook.

Senior Advocate Pratibha Singh began the arguments today by presenting an allegedly new development on the Whatsapp website in which Whatsapp claims that user information will be shared with Facebook and the users are given an option of "opting-out" in case they do not want their information shared.

After you enable the Siri feature, you will be able to ask it to send a message to someone or call a friend by using a command such as: "Hey Siri, text X Y on WhatsApp".

WhatsApp had made many changes to its privacy policy on August 25.
