Last quote about WhatsApp

Julia Powles
The European commission sanction against Facebook will do little to deter it from harvesting ever more our private data. The indomitable empire of Facebook is being assailed by a volley of arrows from Europe. The latest struck on Thursday: a £94m fine from the European commission for providing misleading information in 2014 when the commission was doing a merger review on Facebook’s acquisition of WhatsApp.feedback

Tim Berners-Lee - World Wide Web Consortium

Now I know that if you're trying to catch terrorists it's really tempting to demand to be able to break all that encryption but if you break that encryption then guess what – so could other people and guess what – they may end up getting better at it than you are. I may have invented the web, but all of you have helped to create what it is today. It has taken all of us to build the web we have, and now it is up to all of us to build the web we want – for everyone.feedback

Tim Berners-Lee - World Wide Web Consortium

I'm humbled to receive the namesake award of a computing pioneer who showed that what a programmer could do with a computer is limited only by the programmer themselves. It is an honor to receive an award like the Turing that has been bestowed to some of the most brilliant minds in the world.feedback

David Kahn

Had the President recommended his own system to Secretary of State James Madison, he would have endowed his country with a method of secret communication that would almost certainly have withstood any cryptanalytic attack of those days. Instead he appears to have filed and forgotten it.feedback

George Washington

By passing through the Post offices [my sentiments] should become known to all the world.feedback

Alexander Rose

If deciphered, the British could identify the senders, arrest them, and hang them.feedback

Sara Georgini

They didn't throw away those habits once the new nation got formed.feedback

Jonathan Shaw

There is a lot of politics at play here. What they (the government) are trying to do is use this moment to nudge the debate more in their line.feedback

Amber Rudd

You can have a system whereby they can build it so we can have access to it when it is absolutely necessary. But I want to draw a very clear distinction here – I support end-to-end encryption as part of cyber security, for families, for banking, for businesses.feedback

Amber Rudd

I would ask Tim Cook to think again about other ways of helping us work out how we can get into the situations like WhatsApp on the Apple phone.feedback

Carmelo Abela

There is a fine line here. We need to of course protect the privacy of the people, but we also have to protect the security of the people.feedback

Amber Rudd

There should be no place for terrorists to hide. We need to make sure that organisations like WhatsApp – and there are plenty of others like it – don't provide a secret place for terrorists to communicate with each other. What these companies have to realise is that they are now publishing companies. They are not technology companies, they are platforms. And we need to make sure that stops. You are right, we will not resign from taking action if we need to do so.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn

There is a question of always balancing the right to know, the need to know with the right to privacy. I think it probably is [broadly right at the moment]. I've been concerned about giving too much unaccountable power to anybody in our society.feedback

Jonathan Shaw

I think there's a lot of politics at play here. There's a debate in Parliament about the whole Snooper's Charter and the rights of the state and I think what they are trying to do is use this moment to nudge the debate more in their line. The problem will mutate and move on. We are aiming at a very fluid environment here. We are in real trouble if we apply blunt weapons to this, absolutist solutions.feedback

Amber Rudd

We need to make sure that organisations like WhatsApp, and there are plenty of others like that, don't provide a secret place for terrorists to communicate with each other. It used to be that people would steam open envelopes or just listen in on phones when they wanted to find out what people were doing, legally, through warranty. But on this situation we need to make sure that our intelligence services have the ability to get into situations like encrypted WhatsApp. If I was talking to (Apple CEO) Tim Cook, I would say to him that this is something completely different.feedback

Amber Rudd

[They need to] take responsibility for the fact that their sites, their platforms, their publishing enterprises are being used by terrorists. That's why I've called them in this week. I'm seeing a group of them to work with them to try and set up an industry board. I'm calling time on terrorists using social media as their platform. [Encryption] is completely unacceptable. There should be no place for terrorists to hide. We need to make sure that organisations like WhatsApp – and there are plenty of others like that – don't provide a secret place for terrorists to communicate with each other.feedback

Brian Paddick - WhatsApp

The real question is, could lives have been saved in London last week if end-to-end encryption had been banned? All the evidence suggests that the answer is no.feedback

Tim Cook - Apple

The implications of the government's demands are chilling. If the government can use the All Writs Act to make it easier to unlock your iPhone, it would have the power to reach into anyone's device to capture their data.feedback

Neil Basu

Nevertheless, we are determined to understand if Masood was a lone actor inspired by terrorist propaganda or if others have encouraged, supported or directed him. If the latter proves to be the case, they will face justice. Whilst the attack lasted only 82 seconds it will remain in the memories of many forever. The thoughts of all those working on this investigation are with those so deeply affected.feedback

Francisco Lopes

He started to move towards the pavement and started to just take out the people that were in front of the car, so, when I realised this, the car was literally just about one metre away, so I had no time to get out of the way.feedback

Amber Rudd

We need to make sure that organizations like WhatsApp – and there are plenty of others like that – don't provide a secret place for terrorists to communicate with each other. This terrorist (Masood) sent a WhatsApp message and it can't be accessed.feedback

Amber Rudd

It is completely unacceptable, there should be no place for terrorists to hide. We need to make sure organizations like WhatsApp, and there are plenty of others like that, don't provide a secret place for terrorists to communicate with each other. We need to make sure that our intelligence services have the ability to get into situations like encrypted WhatsApp. This is something completely different. We're not saying open up, we don't want to go into the Cloud, we don't want to do all sorts of things like that.feedback

Amber Rudd

We have to have a situation where we can have our security services get into the terrorists' communications. That's absolutely the case. Of course, I will have those conversations [with the industry], and we will see where they go. These people have families, have children as well. They should be on our side, and I'm going to try to win that argument. What these companies have to realise is that they are now publishing companies. They are not technology companies. They are platforms. I would much rather have a situation where we get all these companies around the table agreeing to do it.feedback

Anne Yeh - Facebook

When Check Point reported the issue, we addressed it within a day and released an update of WhatsApp for web. To ensure that you are using the latest version, please restart your browser.feedback

Shebly Seyrafi - FBN Securities

Remember that (Facebook) paid $21.8 (billion) for WhatsApp, a company which, although it had more users than SNAP, was not generating any real revenue.feedback

Emma Watson

We actually have a group WhatsApp. It's kind of like Pokémon. I'm trying to catch them all right now.feedback

Matthew Lewis

We had like a WhatsApp group, and she invited a whole bunch of us all over the place.feedback

Sam Altman

We do generally see a lot of companies wanting to test their products with YC cos.feedback

Umer Ilyas

It represents a huge opportunity, because in all the big dairy markets - India, Brazil, Pakistan - a lot of farmers have access to WhatsApp.feedback

Joshua Browder

It works with almost every device, making it accessible to over a billion people. Ideally I would love to expand to WhatsApp when their platform opens up, particularly because it's popular internationally.feedback

Alan Duric - WhatsApp

It is vital that politicians educate themselves about the differences between channels and protocols, and what is and isn't safe. It is not acceptable for those people who are entrusted with the running of our countries to be ignorant of others trying to listen in on conversations, and they need advice on how this can be prevented.feedback

Matt Burgess

It's impossible to know whether these groups exist without them being admitted to, which makes them hard to request information about. There are also record-keeping issues with using commercial apps that are end-to-end encrypted, as they make it harder to extract conversations that need to be kept for archives.feedback

Jan Koum

No one can see inside that message. Not cybercriminals. Not hackers. Not oppressive regimes. Not even us.feedback

Jim Killock - Open Rights Group

When MPs argue for back doors into encryption, they fail to see how vital encryption is for our everyday lives – whether for communicating, shopping or banking securely. The fact that MPs are increasingly using WhatsApp to communicate is rather ironic, given that they have just voted for a law that undermines the privacy of the UK population.feedback

Alan Duric - WhatsApp

The current digital goal for those trying to sway elections is to discredit candidates and undermine them personally. All it takes is one private conversation shared publicly, one internal memo, or one message confirming an unpublicised indiscretion to lose an election.feedback

Matthew Lewis

We had like a WhatsApp group, and she invited a whole bunch of us all over the place. So I said, Yeah, I'll come over.' . At some point in the future [we will start planning]. A little busy at the minute. She's American, so we've got quite a lot of things to discuss about location and whatnot before we get anywhere.feedback

Anthony DiClemente

1) Already slowing growth in daily active users (DAUs) 2.) Slowing monetization (ARPU) [average revenue per user] growth 3.) Fierce competition from larger rivals such as Facebook, Instagram, and WhatsApp 4) Rich valuation relative to current and future growth.feedback

Tami Zuckerman

For them it was really about our retention numbers. Fifty percent of our members were coming back to the app six times a day. One of the investors said they hadn't seen that kind of activity since they invested in WhatsApp. Tech is seen as an important sector for the country.feedback

Runa Sandvik

We received useful information within 24 hours of launching.feedback

Anirudh Suri

It [Hike] can't really go head-to-head against WhatsApp ... a more niche strategy might help it survive. WhatsApp is the clear leader in India – as far as both C2C messaging is concerned as well as the use of messaging by businesses for B2C communication.feedback

Jon Brod

Last week our users increased 7 times over the prior week, so just, explosive growth. We have seen accelerating growth since the U.S. election, but this catapults us in a new category. Every month has been a new record for us across all usage and engagement metrics. The genie is out of the bottle. This is here to say -- iMessage uses it, WhatsApp uses, increasingly everyone will use it.feedback

Kevin Weil - Instagram

[We] built on a format that Snapchat invented. It's a format, [and] we believe that format will be universal.feedback

Randall Sarafa - WhatsApp

This is a format that is being broadly adopted, and we're adopting it as well. There are some pretty interesting things that we've done to make it unique to WhatsApp.feedback

Tobias Boelter

If WhatsApp is asked by a government agency to disclose its messaging records, it can effectively grant access due to the change in keys. WhatsApp can effectively continue flipping the security keys when devices are offline and re-sending the message, without letting users know of the change till after it has been made, providing an extremely insecure platform.feedback

Sugar Rodgers

I heard about a bombing that killed 17 people about two hours away, and right there I was like, I don't want to stay,' . The government shut off all lines of communication so I couldn't get on Twitter, Facebook, WhatsApp. It was pretty scary not to be able to communicate with anyone.feedback

Jan Koum

In terms of security and privacy, what people care about the most is the privacy of their messages.feedback

Nebojsa Medojevic

The oldest one is 73 years old and the youngest is 17, so you see what a farce this arrest is.feedback

Ranko Krivokapic

Blocking such apps is unthinkable in any normal country. I have never heard of that happening anywhere ever in an election.feedback

Johannes Caspar - Data Protection

Facebook now can either adhere to this directive and stop sharing data and delete WhatsApp data that has already been collected, or it can take legal steps against it.feedback

Amit Fulay - Google

If your friend sends you a photo of their pet, you might see Smart Reply suggestions like 'aww cute!feedback

Antonello Soro

Many people are simply unaware of the dangers surrounding social networks. They are a world without limits in which once we've made a comment, posted an image: controlling these sites; controlling the files; becomes very difficult to manage.feedback

Jan Koum

Your data isn't even in the picture. We are simply not interested in any of it.feedback

Jeffrey Chester

Very few people opt out, it should be an informed opt in. No data should be used unless people are informed honestly about how it's going to be used.feedback

Mindy McAdams - Twitter

Phone numbers?!? No! That's absolutely NOT OKAY. I might need to delete Facebook, people. NOT kidding.feedback

Jeffrey Chester

This is a strong-arm tactic on the part of Facebook. They continue on a campaign on to run roughshod on our privacy rights.feedback

Max Wolff

Google's making sure they don't get left behind in a world dominated by the WhatsApp, and the Snapchat, and the FaceTimes and the Apples, who are basically their major competitors.feedback

Jeff Lawson

We expect to add new customers in the coming quarters. As our customers are growing their businesses and they have more end-users to communicate with ... that also grows Twilio's opportunity and revenue.feedback

Dan Guido - Trail of Bits

With thousands of people in a single WhatsApp chat, it only takes one person to get captured while their phone is unlocked to discover every planned detail.feedback

Tim Strazzere

ByLock is an insecure messaging application that is not widely used today. Anyone who wanted to reverse engineer the app could do so in minutes.feedback

Heather Bellini - Goldman Sachs Group

When coupled with emerging bets on platforms such as Messenger and WhatsApp, we continue to see an unparalleled product roadmap. The strength in the core Facebook app is continuing and newer monetization opportunities such as Instagram and video are quickly following as MAUs and the number of advertisers are growing.feedback

Bob van Dyk - Naspers

Something that we've been confronted with is that because there is so much competition for the chat product, you need a certain audience engagement before any of those other products can become mainstream.feedback

Christopher Soghoian - American Civil Liberties Union

Encryption is best when it is hidden, invisible to the user and turned on by default.feedback

Brad Gerstner - Altimeter Capital

This is the intel on the inside for all communications gear from WhatsApp to Uber.feedback

Michael Kent

We can see that as the world increasingly uses WhatsApp and Viber, we think money transfer will be an obvious use case of expanding those services.feedback

Jan Dawson - Jackdaw Research

They haven't yet turned on the monetization spigot for Messenger or WhatsApp, so there should be significant headroom still.feedback

Jan Koum

We've been working for the past two years to give people better security over their conversations on WhatsApp... People deserve security. It makes it possible for us to connect with our loved ones. It gives us the confidence to speak our minds. It allows us to communicate sensitive information with colleagues, friends, and others. We're glad to do our part in keeping people's information out of the hands of hackers and cyber-criminals.feedback

Jan Koum

I'm proud of our team for hitting this milestone: now every message, photo, video, file, and voice message you send, is end-to-end encrypted by default if you and the people you message use the latest version of our app. Even your group chats and voice calls are encrypted. We're glad to do our part in keeping people's information out of the hands of hackers and cyber-criminals.feedback

Peter Eckersley - Electronic Frontier Foundation

The F.B.I. and the Justice Department are just choosing the exact circumstance to pick the fight that looks the best for them. They're waiting for the case that makes the demand look reasonable.feedback

Randy Guisto

The platform's overall growth is underwhelming. They have plateaued and can't look to India or China as those markets are dominated by messaging apps like WhatsApp, as well as Apple (O:AAPL) and Google's proprietary, pre-installed platforms.feedback

Alexander Steinhart

Smartphones and the Internet are like some sort of happiness providers that we keep in our pockets. It's a bit like being drawn to a slot machine in a casino. Notifications like a message from a friend or an important event are like points that we expect to receive. We are constantly under tension and this stimulates emotions within us. But 90% of the time, what is happening is not that important.feedback

Nina Kov

In one case at Keleti Railway Station in Budapest, we showed the app to refugees, and that is how they found out that Germany was imposing controls. They learnt this from us first, because they could see it translated into their own languages.feedback

Nora Shenouda

The smartphone is not merely an expensive accessory for refugees. The information it provides does not just save them time and money. It can also save lives.feedback

Jan Koum

When advertising is involved, you the user are the product.feedback

Mark Zuckerberg - Facebook

No one in the history of the world has ever done something like this.feedback

Rick Summer - Morningstar

This is a tacit admission that Facebook can't do things that other networks are doing.feedback

Tim Bradshaw - Financial Times

This is a very hot market at the moment, there have been many different of these chat apps popping up. There's WeChat in China, there's Line in Japan and other parts of Asia – but WhatsApp is by far the biggest of all of them, which is why Facebook has paid such a huge price.feedback

Rick Summer - Morningstar

They can't replicate what other companies are doing so they go out and buy them. That's not all together encouraging necessarily and I think deals like these won't be the last one and that is something for investors to consider.feedback

Jonathan Teo

Facebook is more about content and has not yet fully figured out communication.feedback
