Brian Acton, who sold WhatsApp to Zuckerberg for $19 billion in 2014 revealed that “at the end of the day, I sold my company. I sold my users’ privacy to a larger benefit. I made a choice and a compromise. And I live with that every day.”
Acton has developed another App, called Signal. Over 50 millions people are already using Signal.

Thank you to everyone who’s reached out. We're still working to counter any confusion by communicating directly with @WhatsApp users. No one will have their account suspended or deleted on Feb 8 and we’ll be moving back our business plans until after May – https://t.co/H3DeSS0QfO
