- Submitted an affidavit stating WhatsApp’s malpractices
- Questioned WhatsApp's ways to persuade users to accept the updated policy
- Alleges WhatsApp is tricking users to update before PDB matures into law
In a fresh affidavit, it alleged that the messaging platform is indulging in anti-user practices by obtaining ‘trick consent’ for its updated policy.
“Millions of WhatsApp users who haven’t accepted the new policy are bombarded with notifications every day,” the government said and urged the court to issue interim direction to the messaging app to abstain from any action of ‘push notifications’ onto users.
