Messaging or Call Tracker or Sharing or Social App - More Declaration to User's Needed

The Messaging or Sharing or Social Applications player should be brought under privacy and private act of India. Post Whatsapp Court saga of sharing the information with FB and subsequent PIL in Delhi high court; it's the right time that Applications providers should be brought under the regulatory ambit.

None of the applications providers should be allowed to fetch any personal information from user device. The regulators or honorable court must direct that none of mentioned app segment will be allowed to read and fetch the contact lit, SMS's and must declare that they are not capturing the user usage behaviour other than their own applications.

Many of the mentioned segment based application providers store all the use information and also track their usage pattern. They take consent through terms and condition which none of the user read. There should be a mechanism that once user start using the application for the first time then there should be clear pop with detailed explanation about the need of that access.

Regulators should also ensure that none of the message should be kept once user uninstall the applications. Applications provider should be forced to host the database of Indian users in India instead of taking it outside India.

In my point of view where users are using Smartphone for financial transactions, these measures are off utmost importance
