WhatsApp Calls IT Rules Illegal, Moves Delhi High Court

- Advertisement -

New Delhi: Social messaging platform WhatsApp filed a lawsuit in the Delhi High Court against the Centre’s new digital rules that take effect on Wednesday. WhatsApp said these would compel it to break privacy protections to users.

The Facebook-owned service filed the petition on Tuesday against the rules that will require it to “trace” the origin of messages sent on the service, which the company says is a violation of privacy.

“Requiring messaging apps to ‘trace’ chats is the equivalent of asking us to keep a fingerprint of every single message sent on WhatsApp, which would break end-to-end encryption and fundamentally undermines people’s right to privacy,” a statement from WhatsApp said.
The messaging app has nearly 400 million users in India, added the statement.

“We have consistently joined civil society and experts around the world in opposing requirements that would violate the privacy of our users. In the meantime, we will also continue to engage with the government of India on practical solutions aimed at keeping people safe, including responding to valid legal requests for the information available to us,” a spokesperson of the California-based Facebook unit said.
