- In the intro, mention the new IT Rules 2021 mandating certain obligations from the social media platforms.
- In the body, mention the role of end-to-end encryption in protecting the privacy of the user as these messages are difficult to intercept and decrypt. Traceability of the message without ending end-to-end encryption is difficult. So, to comply with the rules end-to-end encryption offered by the social media platform may no longer be possible. It harms the interest of user and the social media platforms as well.
- Conclude by mentioning the need for legislative changes in the IT Act 2000 with adequate protection and compliance with the K.S. Puttaswamy judgement.
