@Crapmypants it already started.

Quietly, Govt Sold Vehicular Bulk Data to Firm Without Price Discovery, Privacy Protection

Most likely, given their track record, they would be leasing out the databases on a yearly basis to create a revenue stream for the Cares project.

Come one, Come all, yearly/ quaterly fiscal and personal data deals.

So what now? :|
Can someone summarize wtf happened or what can be done about it? I thought the govt and fb were negotiating? The update is now forced. I'm sure that most users will have updated them by now. Most don't care about privacy anyway. I can't say I don't either but I don't like this kind of policies in which they force updates on users. How many users have updated?

PS: don't mind the "H." There's a power cut since last night so most towers are down. @princeoo7 jinxed it.
WhatsApp's latest update was dated May 24th. And they didn't mention the updated privacy policies anywhere. This is the kind of shit which I really hate about all these IT companies. Would EU allow this?
I use WhatsApp only because of some friends and family. I used to rely only on emails a lot and also Google Hangout (I think) in the past but got told that they were very inconvenient for many of them.

You can update WhatsApp and still not agree with the new privacy policy. I have got daily reminders from the past month or so.

Even I have not updated but agreed to their conditions. But then again, I will be deleting WA soon so not much difference.. You can update and disagree to their conditions.

Remember when everybody massively installed Signal, Telegram, etc. and enjoyed checking who else did the same ?
90% of people forgot whether even those apps existed in their mobile now.
WhatsApp is used for office work, etc., those who don't use WA will be considered odd man out and even shamed.
FB know in details how their addicts behave and don't need to care.

Govt. use of these social media networks should be curtailed from beginning.

Instead, our govt. is making 'sabka vikaas' in capitalizing citizen's private data and eke out few shekels from it in every manner possible.


In a bid to reduce concentration risks in the payments sector, the Reserve Bank of India (RBI) last year invited companies to forge so-called New Umbrella Entities (NUEs) to create a payments network that would rival the country's flagship processor, the National Payments Council of India (NPCI).

The NUE will be allowed to operate new payment systems including digital and ATM transactions.

Amazon, Google, Facebook and others have applied for such licences in partnership with Indian companies such as Reliance and ICICI Bank.

Involvement of big multi-national companies raises fears of abuse of user data and India's digital payment networks should continue to operate on a non-profit basis, the All India State Bank of India (SBI) Staff Federation and the UNI Global Union, a vocal critic of tech giants, wrote in the letter.

Uh...so instead of updating and not agreeing to their conditions, you haven't updated but already agreed to their conditions?

Yeah.. my bad. It was getting too annoying. Then I realised what I have done. Since I don't use WA much, didn't bother to update it.
