As WhatsApp has mandated everyone to accept the policy or have their account removed from the app, people have been confused whether to accept the policy or not and are concerned regarding their privacy.
Senior advocate Kapil Sibal, appearing for WhatsApp, denied that any private sensitive data is being shared and pointed out that the issue was pending before the Delhi High Court .
In its notice, the SC said that "citizens have great apprehension about loss of their privacy and they think that their data and chats being shared with others and it has to be looked into." The government told SC that the companies can't share data of users and data must be protected.
The court will now take up the hearing of the case after 4 weeks.
