WhatsApp's privacy policy war is over, and WhatsApp lost

WhatsApp's privacy policy war is over, and WhatsApp lost

A couple of weeks ago, news broke that WhatsApp would start encouraging users to agree to its problematic new privacy policy.

Google Pay India adds new cards for tap and pay — these are all the banks it supports so far

Google Pay in India (formerly Tez) quickly rose in popularity to become almost synonymous with the Unified Payments Interface (UPI) — the very platform it’s based on. Last September, the company announced plans to expand beyond UPI payments to support tokenized cards, but nothing materialized even months after that initial teaser.
