WhatsApp shares the reasons why your account could be blocked by the Facebook -owned messaging service .
While WhatsApp has gained enormous popularity over the years, but very few people know that their account can be banned if they violate the terms of service .
There are various reasons why your account can be suspended , but in all cases, WhatsApp first gives a warning before permanently blocking an account .
If it is detected that you are committing a fault, you will see this message when you open the application: “Your phone number is not authorized to use our service. Contact support for help.” If it is a temporary block, a counter will appear indicating when you will be able to use the service again.
WhatsApp can temporarily ban your account if you are using an unauthorized version of the app . They are also known as “WhatsApp Mods” and most are found on Android, they often offer new options, but your privacy is put at risk. These “mods” edit WhatsApp by injecting a different code, which can be dangerous for privacy.
You can also be temporarily banned from WhatsApp if you create too many groups with people you don’t have on your phone or if you send too many messages to numbers you don’t know.
In addition, WhatsApp can temporarily block your account if too many people block you in a certain period of time and if it persists, you can be permanently blocked .
WhatsApp prohibits accounts that perform bulk or automated actions. The app blocks more than 2.5 million accounts per month due to this fault.
If your number is associated with suspicious actions and several people report you, WhatsApp can block you permanently.
The only way to recover from a permanently blocked account is to contact the company through WhatsApp support on its website or by contacting the email [email protected], where you will have to explain the reason for the unblocking.
