India, Brazil, Turkey and others oppose WhatsApp policy change

WhatsApp, which planned to mandate users agree by May 15th to a new privacy policy or lose access to service, faced new opposition this week. India asked for proof of sufficient protection for its citizens. Brazil delayed full enforcement of WhatApp’s policy pending determination of compliance with their LGPD law. Turkey had conflicting reports about whether WhatsApp would apply the new update now. And, Germany earlier this month ordered Faceook to stop processing WhatsApp user data.
