Do you want to build a spreadsheet that tracks your spending habits? Do you want to get a text whenever the International Space Station is flying overhead?
If your answer is yes, then you use IFTTT to do that! IFTTT stands for If, This, Then, That which is an integral part of making all of your automation dreams come true.
Unfortunately, with all the services you can do with IFTTT, there are a ton that has been removed in the past couple of years.
In this article, I am going to go over some of the IFTTT services that are no longer supported. You should note that this does not mean that services like Gmail, eBay, SmartLife, etc listed are inactive.

Do people still use IFTTT?
Yes, people are still using IFTTT. In fact, it is still present in emails and other web-based tasks.
Most people think it is a useful tool in business automation due to its myriad of features and its compatibility with other platforms like Google Home.

Is IFTTT a security risk?
Like any other app, it is important to take precautions to safeguard your data.
Once you lose your device, someone can control any service that is connected to the IFTTT app. For that reason, it is important to enabling two-step verification in the account setting.
Nevertheless, if you’re a responsible user, I don’t think the IFTTT app has a security risk.
As we’re talking about risks, I have attached the video below that talks about the gaps IFTTT is going to face in terms of products and services. Watch it!
IFTTT is one of the most convenient tools to use for integrating smart services into home automation. It’s certainly one of the best tools to use for improving communication and productivity in business.
