“Will Examine”: India Amid Charge Of WhatsApp Using Mics Without Consent.

The Indian government has taken cognizance of the incident against WhatsApp and said that they will probe the charges.

The Centre today said that it will examine the charge against WhatsApp of allegedly accessing the microphone of users’ devices without their knowledge. Earlier this week, a Twitter engineer claimed that WhatsApp had been using his microphone in the background while he was asleep.

Foad Dabiri, Director of Engineering at Twitter, shared screenshots of the app usage and questioned, “What’s going on?” Several users in the comments section claimed of facing similar problems.
