- A petitioner has bought the matter of WhatsApp’s new privacy policies to the Delhi High Court.
- In response, High Court Justice Sanjeev Sachdeva told the petitioner to “use some other app”
- The court will hear the matter again on January 25th
WhatsApp maintains that the proposed changes will only affect chats with businesses, with personal chats remaining unaffected. WhatsApp’s troubles are far from over, and things are unlikely to change in the coming weeks even as the courts and the central government take no issue with the change.
In the meanwhile, WhatsApp’s competitors such as Signal and Telegram have been witnessing a massive surge of users on their respective platforms. Telegram gained over 25 million users in just three days. It is good to see Telegram gain more mainstream acceptance, as the app has always remained one step ahead of WhatsApp when it comes to features, ease of use, and privacy.
