- The Court strongly urged the users to properly read the terms and conditions of any app before they start using it.
The court added that if people read carefully the terms and conditions of the apps before they join, they will be flabbergasted to know what they are agreeing to. Even Google maps capture all the user’s data and store it in the data center. The government of India also agreed to the court that to protect users from these kinds of flaws, the matter requires proper analysis and scrutiny.
Another popular allegation by rivals is that WhatsApp shares user’s location with Facebook to which the former denied and clarified by saying that ” When users give us permission, we access only the phone numbers from your address book to make messaging fast and reliable, and we don’t share your contacts lists with the other apps Facebook offers,”
And, last but not least, WhatsApp business usage is different because when users get in touch with businesses either through, email, phone, or WhatsApp, it uses the information for its own marketing purpose.
