So for a long while now, thought of something like this coming up.
Finally WhatsApp to start banning users using third-party app versions.
Examples: gbwhatsapp, yowhatsapp and lots more!
Facebook-owned WhatsApp has been working hard to maintain the security and privacy of users.
Taking this crucial, the messaging app is now banning users who are more addicted towards its clones than the official version.
WhatsApp has requested it’s users not to use such 3rd party Apps as they are not developed by the official company.
Following other reasons
Its known that the clone Apps also violates WhatsApp’s Terms of Services and aren’t safe for its users as they are often prone to security issues.
Apart from the usual features of a particular app, the modded versions
support additional features which are not available in the official app.
Seeing the message “Your phone number is
banned from using WhatsApp. Contact support for help.”
Note: WhatsApp is definitely going to ban any user if the account activity is in violation of its Terms of Service.
Please ensure to read review “Acceptable Use of Our Services” section of our Terms of Service carefully to learn more about the appropriate uses of WhatsApp and the activities that violate our Terms of Service.
We may not issue a warning before banning your account.
Feel free to let us know how you feel about the working developement.
