It allows users to send text messages and voice messages, make voice and video calls, and share images, documents, user locations, and other content. Now, the privacy policy still not withdrawn by the Whatsapp the CCI continues the Investigation against that, want to know more then read the article below fully to know what is the matter.

The Competition Commission of India (CCI), defending its decision to look into WhatsApp, said the Delhi High Court on Monday that the messenger service has not changed its privacy policy from 2021. The CCI maintained the scope of its investigation has no overlap with the matter of an alleged violation of user privacy that is currently before the Supreme Court in order to get the HC’s approval to move forward with the investigation undisturbed. The appeals by WhatsApp LLC and Facebook Inc. against a single-judge judgement dismissing their challenge to the investigation the CCI ordered into the instant messaging platform’s amended privacy policy were the basis for the CCI’s arguments to the HC.

Based on news reports about WhatsApp’s amended privacy policy in January of last year, CCI independently decided to investigate it. The probe decision was subsequently contested by WhatsApp and Facebook in the HC on the grounds that the Supreme Court and the HC were already debating the matter pertaining to their new policy.

However, the sole judge had declined to halt the probe on April 22 of last year. The CCI defended its decision to look into WhatsApp’s privacy policy together with its parent company Facebook, claiming that the latter is the holding company for the messaging service and may “possibly exploit the data being exchanged.” According to WhatsApp’s legal representative, the “status quo” is being preserved for users who have not chosen to adjust their privacy settings, and the CCI investigation should be postponed given that the privacy setting is now being upheld by the Supreme Court and the high court.

In a submission made last week, senior attorney Harish Salve on behalf of WhatsApp said:

The company was contesting the CCI’s authority to look into a policy that had been put on hold while the government was introducing the Data Protection Bill. For Facebook Inc. (formerly Meta Platforms), senior attorney MukulRohatgi had contended that there was not even initial evidence to support the lawsuit. Therefore the CCI cannot conduct a “creeping” investigation into it. Follow our site for daily updates and job related details at examsdaily.in.
