Social networking was always vulnerable to third party #interception and #tracking and still is. The only difference #government IDs linkage will do is make it easier for LEAs to track and solve the #case smoothly and timely.
Also, #linking government ids with #social#media#apps and other messaging apps would to an extent make sure that the users are responsible of their act/actions to preserve rights of other individual.
Even without linkage, reasonable doubt and suspicion are enough for companies like facebook, twitter, instagram, whatsapp to accept govt's/ LEAs request to act/access users profiles in case if crime being committed or in suspicion but timeframe involved is too huge or many times no data is available to reach actual perpetrator and thus makes the criminal not traceable and hence not punished.
The question raised in everyone’s mind that by linking with ids the govt will have access and will snoop and might act irrationally is baseless as currently also these platforms majorly based out of US have access and do share data. Government IDs linkage will make solving crimes easier and faster.
WhatsApp started beta testing of its UPI payments services, the Indian government had come out with a set of data localisation norms to ensure that the financial data of the company does not go outside the borders and cannot be leveraged by other nations.

The theme for the Panel Discussion scheduled for Saturday, 13th of April, 2019, is “Data Localisation: A Solution for Privacy Concerns?” Data localisation is the idea that the personal data of individuals in a particular country should be processed and stored in that country. Its corollary is that the transfer of data across borders should be disallowed, or restricted.
The Panel Discussion will focus on Data Localization and how RBI's mandate affects companies and the public at large. Differing perspectives by enigmatic personalities on Data Privacy Framework as an upcoming legislation will make for an engaging and lively discussion.
