WhatsApp celebrates 12 years and its numbers do not stop growing

The past few months have been complicated for WhatsApp and the service it provides to users. Changing the rules that he wants to impose on users leads them to want to abandon this proposal and thus seek other proposals.

It is in this climate of distrust and apparent problems that WhatsApp has revealed an important milestone. The service now celebrates 12 years and from what has been revealed its numbers do not seem to stop growing, with more and more users and an increasing use.


A complicated anniversary of this service

The change in the Privacy Policy has been a real headache for WhatsApp. By revealing that he will start sharing data with companies in his Business area, he ended up creating a true escape for users. They refuse to accept the new rules.

Even with this negative wave, WhatsApp has now revealed that it is celebrating its 12th anniversary. In addition to this moment, the service also revealed in the same tweet several important numbers that show how the service has grown.

Impressive WhatsApp numbers

Thus, and from what is possible to see, WhatsApp also revealed that it already has more than 2 billion monthly active users. These same users already send 100 billion messages and make more than 1 billion calls every day.

To try to control a little the problem at hand, there was still space for a message to users who are still on WhatsApp. The service stressed that it is and remains committed to privacy with an end-to-end cipher. This is one of the biggest criticisms.

WhatsApp numbers years service users

12 years and more users

WhatsApp was created in 2009 by Brian Acton and Jan Koum, who have since left the company. This was eventually sold to Facebook in 2014, for $ 16 billion. Since that time, suspicion of privacy and criticism began.

These figures show that WhatsApp is in a unique position on the Internet and in the market for communication apps. Even with many users opting to abandon WhatsApp and choose other proposals, the truth is that it continues to have very high usage rates.
