After an extremely controversial privacy policy update, WhatsApp has said that it is open to any questions or queries from the government. The company further stated that it is aware of the fact that it now has to "compete" for users' trust, with rivals like Signal.

The new privacy policy update of WhatsApp seeks consent from its users to share their data with Facebook. Following this update in the privacy policy, WhatsApp's rival messaging platforms like Telegram and Signal have seen a massive rise in popularity and downloads. 

WhatsApp Head Will Cathcart has said that it shall remain committed to the security of its Indian users and shall continue reassuring Indian users that their messages will remain end-to-end encrypted. "We know we have to compete for users' trust when it comes to privacy and that's very good for the world. People should have choices in how they communicate and feel confident that no one else can see their chats," said WhatsApp Head Cathcart.
