The Delhi High Court on Monday said all platforms share data, it’s not just WhatsApp while hearing a PIL seeking direction to the Central Government to frame guidelines in connection with WhatsApp sharing data with Facebook and other third parties.
A divisional bench of Justice Sanjeev Sachdeva noted, “It’s a private app, don’t join it. What is your grievance?”
Advocate Manohar Lal, appearing for the petitioner, submitted that the app shares everything with Facebook-based social media apps, whereas, the bench said, “Not just WhatsApp but all platforms do that…Do you know Google Maps also shares data?”
However, the bench has adjourned the matter for further hearing on January 25.
