South Africa’s Information Regulator said yesterday it was seeking legal advice to get messaging platform WhatsApp to revise its privacy policy in the country to align with standards used in the European Union, Reuters reports. The Regulator said that it had written to WhatsApp LLC and requested it to revise its privacy policy in South Africa to the standard used in the EU as the country’s Protection of Personal Information Act (POPIA) ‘has a privacy regime which is very similar to the EU regime. But it has received no agreement from WhatsApp, it added.
