In July 2021, WhatsApp informed the court it “voluntarily agreed to put on hold” the policy till a data protection law is enacted. It said users will not be compelled to accept the policy.
The company pushed back the deadline for the implementation of the policy issued in January last year. The policy provided for sharing some data with WhatsApp’s parent company Facebook.
WhatsApp argued against the probe when the Supreme Court is hearing the matter. It said it has been made to face the investigation because there is “angst” against the WhatsApp private policy which does not give Indian users the option to opt-out.
