I recently had to reconnect one of my services to IFTTT and I took this opportunity to review all the services that I had given IFTTT access.
That led me to ask the following questions:
- Who owns IFTTT?
- How IFTTT makes money?
- Can I trust IFTTT with my data?
My curiosity led to a blog post which may be of interest to you:
Monetising usage and monetising data are two different things. Is IFTTT using my Day One data to make money ? - NO
Is it making money from my usage of Day one IFTTT integration - YES. It’s making money from the developer of Day One. Not me. This is a benefit Day One is providing its customers: https://dayoneapp.com/2016/03/day-one-ifttt/
I am using Day One as an example.
This is why it was important for me to understand their business model. Now my interpretation may be incorrect and I am happy to be corrected
Sorry, no intent to offend you. Deleted the post.
All good mate. I encourage people to test what I am writing. That way we all learn and understand together.
