India is shifting from WhatsApp to Signal after change in privacy policy by WhatsApp.  Many startups and businesses either moved to Signal or experimenting with this.

Recent change in data sharing policy by WhatsApp proved that data is next oil and what is the importance of privacy of data in the mind of users. You can simply apply your business centric policies on the users. This can backfire as did now with WhatsApp.

Now, it’s time for Indian Government to form laws for protection of data privacy of their citizens, as par with the laws already in force in Europe. People are looking towards Government and hopping to show some intent that they care about privacy of their citizen and their data.

Supreme Court of India also issued a notice on 17 Feb, 2021 to “WhatsApp and Facebook” on privacy policy.
