White Papers

WhatsApp recently announced an update on its privacy policy and reached out to its consumers worldwide to consent to the new policy by Feb 2021. However, a lot of confusion and chaos started with many known celebrities deciding to put their views on twitter to move to alternate platforms.

Misinformation and fake news added further to the confusion for users of WhatsApp with multiple self-proclaimed tech experts sharing views without reading actual policy and communication published by WhatsApp.

Given the dynamic scenario, India Future Foundation (IFF), a not for profit Cyber Awareness and Research working in areas of Trust, Safety and Freedom of Expression in India has decided to put forward an explanation of WhatsApp Privacy Policy and how it impacts Privacy, Safety and Security of WhatsApp users.
