WhatsApp said that chat traceability will break its end-to-end encryption promise. It will also undermine civilians’ right to privacy. The Facebook-owned app said that it is against rules that comprise the privacy of users. The company said that it is willing to engage with the Indian government to find a practical solution to the problem. The country’s Electronics and Information Technology Ministry had granted time till May 25 to WhatsApp and other social media platforms to abide by the new IT rules. The government said that those failing to abide by the rules will invite punitive action. WhatsApp in its lawsuit said that the new IT rules designed by the government infringe on the privacy of users. It said that traceability could give a rise to serious misuse.
