WhatsApp, one of the most widely used mobile app for communication. The app is very much available on the Google Play Store and Apple’s App Store but there are a few users who are using the modified version of the app developed by third-parties. These versions offer more features than the standard app but these aren’t as safe as the original app as there’s a high potential for your account to get hacked and your precious data to be misused. So to ensure both privacy and data security of its users, WhatsApp has decided to ban a few users who use third-party developed WhatsApp application.
Banned users will see a message “Your phone number is banned from using WhatsApp. Contact support for help.”,such users need to uninstall the third-party app and download the official app from Google Play Store to restore services. Unfortunately, WhatsApp has not yet clarified if this will restore the chat history of users.
