 Whatsapp - how does it make money? - Bobby
As the question says, how does it make money?

I know FB bought it for zillions a few years ago but as a regular user, it doesnt cost me anything and I dont even see any adverts on my FB suggesting it is picking up whatsapp info.

Is it all on the premis of maybe charging users in the future once they feel they cant live without it?

Well if WhatsApp don't give Priti Patel the security back door she desperately wants in all encrypted traffic, it'll probably become illegal to use it anyway, so I wouldn't worry too much.

Oh wait, MPs use it, you say? That'll be interesting.

That's a long winded way of saying "they sell data about you and your contacts to others"

If you're not making money from the internet, you're the product.
