WhatsApp will delete your account in these cases. See what you shouldn’t do!

WhatsApp specifies in its FAQ a number of situations and behaviors that will result in the account being blocked, temporary in some cases and, depending on the user’s actions, they can also result in a permanent block with the account deleted.

Then we show you what you shouldn’t do on the most popular instant messaging platform in the world. Although there are several unofficial apps, services and add-ons for WhatsApp, you should never use them!

Do you use WhatsApp Plus? Your account will be banned!

The application of dark mode was one of the reasons for using the “Plus”.

Although very complete, the Facebook platform always lacks any options that the user is looking for at a certain time. This leads several users to choose to install other applications, for example, to personalize WhatsApp.

However, if you are a WhatsApp Plus, a tool that was born with the aim of improving the WhatsApp platform, pay attention, as your account can be deleted. This app adds customization options, adds more functions and makes its use, in general, more pleasant and attractive. This caused a great demand for WhatsApp Plus.

Thus, over time we saw several functions coming to this parallel app with advanced options that allow you to change the appearance with personalized themes and adjust a panoply of graphic aspects of the instant communication platform.

More recently, however, Facebook has started blocking the accounts of users caught using Plus. The measures to restrict the social network have hardened and put a firm brake on the popularity of these “extras” for WhatsApp.

Between security risks and modifications to WhatsApp

The Facebook group company also cites risks to user security since WhatsApp Plus has no affiliation with WhatsApp. Thus, it is possible that the third party app contains vulnerabilities, or other flaws.

By violating the Terms of Use of the instant messaging platform, the use of WhatsApp Plus is sufficient reason for your account to be banned and subsequently deleted. Note that, first, the user will be suspended for a while.

If you received a warning in the app saying “Temporarily banned”, it means that you are probably using an unsupported version of WhatsApp instead of the official version of WhatsApp. If you do not switch to the official version of the application after being temporarily banned, your account can be permanently banned from WhatsApp“, can be read in the FAQ.

The result? Account temporarily, or permanently banned

GB WhatsApp

The Facebook group’s messaging platform explicitly mentions WhatsApp Plus and GBWhatsApp, among other similar apps. They are applications with the potential to modify the official application and, as such, violate the Terms of Service.

Being incompatible with these apps, WhatsApp says it is unable to validate the security measures – if any – that these third-party applications may have implemented. Its use will ultimately result in a deleted account.

Unsupported applications (such as WhatsApp Plus, GB WhatsApp and other apps that claim to transfer your conversations between different devices) are modified versions of WhatsApp. These unofficial apps were developed by other companies and violate our Terms of Service.“, specifies the FAQ page.

In case of ban, here’s how to switch to the official WhatsApp app

The platform advises to make a backup chat history before switching to the official app. Then, for users of the GB WhatsApp:

  1. Wait until the temporary ban ends. The stopwatch will show the required waiting time.
  2. On GB WhatsApp, tap More options> Conversations> Conversation backup.
  3. On your smartphone, tap Settings> Storage> Files.
  4. Find the GB WhatsApp folder, press and hold to select it.
  5. In the upper right corner, tap More> Rename and rename the folder to “WhatsApp”.
  6. Then open the Play Store and download the official WhatsApp app.
  7. On WhatsApp, check your phone number.
  8. In the menu showing the backup found, tap Restore> Next.
  9. WhatsApp will load existing conversations.

For users of WhatsApp Plus, all you have to do is install the official application through the Play Store and authenticate / verify the respective phone number. If the conversation history has been saved, the transfer will be automatic.

The platform is inexorable in applying its Terms of Service, so you should not use unofficial apps.
