TV actress Srishti Jain says, “WhatsApp is my go-to. I am very comfortable and used to the app so no I don’t think I’ll switch. Also, I’m glad they’re updating their privacy settings. It’s good to know that they constantly work on keeping our chats more secure”.
Actress Malvi Malhotra says, “WhatsApp’s new policy is coming up and I think it will be good for everyone and it is an old company. I don’t think they will make such changes that will reduce their customers and whatever changes they are doing is to decrease the crime rate and there should be transparency, everybody should be transparent and there is nothing to hide. Privacy is also important but at the same time, I think I won’t switch to another application because it is very old and everyone is there on WhatsApp so people won’t stop using WhatsApp, and whatever changes are happening people will adapt to that”.
TV actress Kavitta Verma said, “WhatsApp is an integral part of our lifestyle. It’s a professional necessity but if it takes the right to privacy then it is going to be risky. It feels as though our personal life would be in public view. I am sure it would be difficult but yes I would go for an app that respects privacy. I hope WhatsApp figures out a midway and protects the privacy of individuals. For many Telegram is coming as a new option so it seems I would switch on that for privacy sake”.
Bollywood choreographer Rajit Dev says, “The new update policy of WhatsApp is more like a threat to everyone’s privacy. It’s made our personal life an open book on the internet. The privacy is compromised. There is something called GDPR which is general data protection regulation which is a law followed in European countries that protects the data of Europeans. There’s no law in India as of now for people’s data privacy. I’m confused as to which app to switch to. Any app you go there’s always a threat of data privacy being compromised. Hope the government comes up with a law where the data of Indians is kept private and cannot be misused”.
