However, the topic of data privacy once again made it to the news when the Supreme Court of India favoured data privacy of Indians two days ago. On Monday, February 14, while hearing a plea seeking restraint against WhatsApp from applying its new policy, Chief Justice of India S A Bobde said, "You may be a $2-3 trillion company, but people's privacy is more valuable and it is our duty to protect their privacy."
Owing to the entire controversy surrounding data privacy, there have been growing apprehensions among the general public against social media sites and search engines. Recently, social media and search engine applications that do not compromise on people's digital data are being launched in the market. One such digital app is 'Wave India'.
Wave India is a digital search engine application that calls itself 'privacy app'. It lets you browse in private mode and chat anonymously. It also neutralizes web trackers and blocks invasive apps. The app has been especially trending on Twitter after Amitabh Bachchan and Abhishek Bachchan tweeted about the app. Both junior and senior Bachchan praised the app in their tweets and asked their fans and followers to download it.
In a tweet, Abhishek Bachchan wrote, "@elonmusk tweets about chat privacy. He’s right! But what about web privacy? With @WaveAppIndia we can be assured of complete privacy. Now that makes a big difference, no one can take my data anymore. Time for change! #privacymatters Join Wave"
Meanwhile Amitabh Bachchan retweeted Abhishek's tweet and wrote, ".. main toh keh raha hoon WAVE kar hi do !! . @WaveAppIndia .. all the best .. "
Wave App is currently trending on Twitter in India as more and more Twitter users are currently tweeting in favour of the app. And when a trend begins, can memes be far behind?
Here are some of the tweets. Have a look.
