“Even Google Maps collects and stores all of your data,” the court said.
The court further said it could not understand what data the petitioner said had leaked and, since the issue needs to be investigated, it will be listed on January 25 due to lack of time on Monday.
The central government also agreed with the court that the problem needs to be analyzed.
WhatsApp and Facebook, represented by senior lawyers Kapil Sibal and Mukul Rohatgi, told the court that the cause of action could not be upheld and that many of the questions raised were unfounded. They also told the court that private chat messages between family and friends remain encrypted and cannot be stored by WhatsApp and that this position would not change under the new policy.
The policy change would only affect business chats on WhatsApp, they said.
