As this article highlights about the problems arising from the New Whatsapp Privacy Policy and the need for data protection law in India. Privacy can be understood as a right of an individual to decide who can get right of entry to the data, when they can get entry to the data, what data they can get entry to. Indian constitution defines Privacy as personal liberty in Article 21. “Protection of Life And Personal Liberty” No individual shall be deprived of his life or personal liberty except according to the process established through law. The notification was made ‘after’ the WhatsApp New Policy, which states that it may share data of any of its users with its own circle of relatives of companies (Facebook). This new update has prompted numerous difficulties over the privacy of the people that use this application. The new policy permits Facebook to get entry to these business interactions and user purchasing interest to target advertisements and customize content. WhatsApp/Facebook cannot see the user's personal messages, group messages, or listen calls with their friends, family, and co-workers, due to the fact it is protected by end-to-end encryption.
