The Supreme Court on Monday expressed concerns whether the citizens’ rights are affected by the contract entered into between WhatsApp and Facebook in 2016 to share user information, including messages, pictures, and videos.
“You say the name is not shared but the attributes of identity is shared. What is the need to share the attributes of identity? Now they [users] fear what you will share. We are concerned with whether an individual’s rights are affected under Article 19(1)(g) of the Constitution,” the Bench asked WhatsApp.
