Explaining what will happen to users who do not accept the contract, WhatsApp officials said, “We will not limit the application for anyone. Instead, we will continue to remind users to update from time to time. ” used the expressions.
This statement is interpreted as the popular messaging application succumbing to the pressure from India. The Asian country, which has had difficulties with some social media companies in the past, bans applications that it thinks do not comply with its rules.
The most recent example of this was TikTok, which was recently banned. The application, whose activities in the country has been suspended, cannot be used in India at the moment, despite all its investments in the country. WhatsApp, not wanting to have a similar problem, is trying to meet with the Government of India in the middle.
