You dont patent an "idea." You patent a "method" or "process." For example, google couldn't patent Android, but the were able to patent the method of implementing their face unlock technology. Furthermore, I hope you realize that patenting is not expensive. Even the simplest software patent can hold a price tag with 4-5 digits.
