I think WhatsApp are really working on their reputation and security this day’s, few days ago I posted an update on Devices that WhatsApp no longer support
WhatsApp has risen and have started blocking users that violates their rules. [Below is an official statement from WhatsApp about this development https://www.whatsapp.com/faq/en/general/28030003} .
“If we suspect that your account activity constitutes an abuse of our system, your account will be temporarily banned from using WhatsApp. You will receive a warning message in the app that contains the duration of this temporary ban”
Below Are Activities That Can Lead To WhatsApp Ban
1. Sending too many messages to users who do not have your number saved in their address books. Make sure that you ask all of your WhatsApp contacts to add your current number to their address books.
2. Being blocked by too many people in a short period of time. Make sure you only communicate with people who want to receive messages from you.
3. Creating too many groups that contain users who do not list you in their address books. Make sure that you ask all of your WhatsApp contacts to add your current number to their address books.
4. Sending the same message to too many people. Use Broadcast Lists to send the same message to your contacts.
Meanwhile, the ban normally lasts for about 22hrs but could be more than that depending on the volume of violation. Now, Facebook owners have introduced the same banning stuff on Facebook to WhatsApp. You now need to be careful on your activities on WhatsApp unless you want to create a new account with new number.
What do you think about WhatsApp recent changes??? 😱
