WhatsApp in India – level 2

02-06-2021 15:00

India’s government has a new law. WhatsApp doesn’t like this law. The new law says that social media companies have to identify message senders.

WhatsApp says that it cannot do it because it would have to give information about those who send messages and those who receive them.

WhatsApp, Facebook and other big companies invested heavily in India, but now they worry that they could lose the investments because of the new law.

WhatsApp currently has nearly 400 million users in the country.

Difficult words: heavily (very much), currently (at the moment), nearly (almost).
