Facebook executives will ask questions about WhatsApp privacy changes from the Indian Parliament panel on Thursday, sources said, a few days after the messaging platform was asked by the state’s Ministry of Technology to withdraw them.
Demand for rival applications such as Signal and Telegram surged due to privacy concerns, and WhatsApp decided last week to postpone the launch of its new policy from February to May.
India, with 400 million users, is WhatsApp’s largest market, and messaging services have big plans for the country’s expanding digital payment space, including the sale of health insurance through partners.
Last year, Facebook invested $ 5.7 billion in a digital unit at Reliance Industries, a conglomerate led by Mukesh Ambani. Most of them were aimed at attracting tens of millions of traditional shopkeepers to use digital payments via WhatsApp.
