WhatsApp's encryption services are lawful until further notice, yet perhaps not for long

WhatsApp acquainted end-with end encryption for every one of its services. This implies all client calls, writings, video, pictures and different records sent must be seen by the proposed beneficiary, and nobody, not even WhatsApp itself, can get to this information. This insurance of client security makes new attentiveness toward the legislature.

WhatsApp will now think that its difficult to consent to government demands for information, since WhatsApp itself won't have the decoding key. In actuality, WhatsApp is doing precisely what Apple did in the Apple versus FBI fight; it's avoiding government access to information, however on a much bigger scale. While Apple limited access to clients of iPhones just, now for all intents and purposes each client of WhatsApp on any gadget is secured. 51% of all clients of web informing administrations in India use WhatsApp, with an aggregate number of more than 70 million clients (Source: TRAI's OTT Consultation Paper, dated March 2015). WhatsApp has now anticipated government access to the messages and calls of no less than 70 million Indian clients.

No encryption necessities are relevant on OTTs like WhatsApp

TSP's and ISP's, like Airtel and Vodafone, need to acquire a permit from the Department of Telecommunications keeping in mind the end goal to have the capacity to give such administrations in India. This permit incorporates a few confinements, including permit expenses, guaranteeing crisis administrations, secrecy of client data and prerequisites for legal capture attempt, checking and the security of the system. These incorporate encryption prerequisites.

Applications like WhatsApp, Skype and Viber are, in any case, neither TSP's nor ISP's. These are known as 'Over-The-Top Services', or OTTs. Right now, OTTs are not directed and thus, there are no encryption prerequisites, nor are there whatever other necessities for the sake of security which these need to conform to.
