Minister: (Efforts being made to introduce strong data protection law to protect citizens’ privacy: Fawad)

ISLAMABAD:Minister for Science and Technology, Chaudhry Fawad Hussain has said efforts are being made to introduce a strong data protection law to protect citizens’ privacy.

Responding to the WhatsApp Privacy Policy allowing data sharing of consumers, he said instead of adopting a unilateral approach, such policy changes should have been made after wider consultation.

The WhatsApp users are required to agree to new policy by February 8 if they want to continue using the service.
