    Yeah but like I had WhatsApp back then and I simply reinstalled or something like that.

    Like it was like WinRAR more a suggestion than a strong requirement, there were ways to bypass it, start the 1 free year again or whatever it was called back then.

    There wasn’t a strong enforcement or validation.

      WhatsApp original business plan was ‘use the app fro free for a year and than pay $1 per year’. I wouldn’t mind paying $1 per year for for an app without adds and respecting my privacy.
