SonyLiv is living in the past…

India has just now passed DPDPA 2023. While there is an expectation in the air about organizations becoming more responsible in handling personal information, I came across a request for permission for installation of SonyLiv app on an Android mobile. This was recommended by Samsung along with one of its updations.

I wonder how SonyLiv can justify the need for all this information and how Samsung can recommend such app that too after DPDPA 2023 has become a law in India.

The Data Protection Board to be set up has one case to follow up. May be many more such instances be reported by in the times to come.
