We don’t need to tell you that WhatsApp is the most widely used messaging app in the world and that you surely have installed on your smartphone, whether it’s Android or an iPhone.
Like any application, WhatsApp has its operating rules and security policies to guarantee that all users use the application legitimately, something that does not always happen and that leads, on many occasions, to the banning of said account.
Removing actions that we all know are not only not allowed in the application, but may even be illegal, there are certain others that are more common, that, perhaps, we have ever done, which can lead to the blocking of our WhatsApp.
Let’s see some of them so that we avoid them and they cannot leave us without working with the application.

Use an unofficial version
There are a good number of unofficial versions of WhatsApp that are created by external developers in order to provide the application with some other capacity that does not exist in the official one or to give it a different design.
GB WhatsApp, WhatsApp Plus, WhatsApp Go, WhatsApp Prime, and OG WhatsApp are some of the most popular versions out there today.
But not everything is that pretty, since this type of application usually entails consequences such as lower security levelswhich can be a problem for us as we can get hacked which could have fatal results.
As you well know, WhatsApp offers us end-to-end encryption, ensuring that chats are restricted within this system. The unofficial versions do not offer this encryptionn end to endwhich means that your conversations can be accessed.
Certain continuing actions
When as users we receive spam from another person on a continuous basis, if the content that is sent to us generates hate or is offensive or in bad taste and even if we repeatedly have chats of strangers talking to us, in addition to be able to block all these accounts, they can also be reported.
In the moment in which WhatsApp receives the complaint, gains access to the last five messages and contact details for review. This generates a report in which it is decided whether or not the standards were transgressed.
And several reports reveal violations, WhatsApp will block said account. Obviously the blocked user will be able to request a review using the application or email to declare themselves against the decision.
You should also know that normally, when an account is closed, it is difficult for them to back down.
If you remember, some time ago WhatsApp restricted the message forwarding function to only five people at a time.
This was done to fight against indiscriminate spam that for a time flooded many users of the app continuously every day.
Instead of sending information one by one, we can use the function State, so that all contacts see what we mean, create one community the one group.
There is a percentage of users who are sending spam without knowing it and see it as something normal that they want to share with a good number of contacts. Well, if you continue with that method you might get a temporary ban for a couple of hours, days or weeksfollowed by a permanent ban if such activities continue.
Many users use the WhatsApp for your businesssending many messages or making a lot of calls or video calls, something that does not imply any type of infringement by the application.
As you probably already know, in WhatsApp you can schedule and automate responses to better manage what we tell our customers.
The problem comes when this feature is misused and the sending of multiple automatic messages or links that can be considered suspicious or dangerous, which can lead to an infringement by WhatsApp.
WhatsApp uses advanced technology, which makes it easy for WhatsApp to detect and review the accounts of such users and ban them if necessary.
You will not suffer any consequences as long as the communications are natural.
Threatening and illegal content
In this sense, we believe that it is quite clear that, if shared illegal content on WhatsAppuses the app to threaten other people or does defamatory comments related to race, religion, age or gender, account access can be lost at any time.
This is a section that is perfectly understandable, since if threatening or illegal content is sent to a person or group, the account can be temporarily blocked and sent for review.
At the moment in which the WhatsApp team verifies that an illegality has actually been committed, will permanently ban the use of the application and will even provide information to law enforcement authorities if necessary.
There was a time when it was common for messages to be received with hacking techniques such as phishing to illegally access our accounts. These attempts have now been reduced because more people are aware and do not fall into such traps.
In addition, WhatsApp has introduced functions such as the end-to-end encryption and the two-step verification to protect accountssomething that we also have present in WhatsApp Web.
But it is not only that, but the Report function allows WhatsApp to review and analyze in depth the accounts that violate its security and privacy policies.
Even so, we must be very attentive, since the techniques to access our accounts today are the malware through the web and third party linkswhich can be a security threat for WhatsApp users.
That is why we must be very careful not to run out of our account or to serve others as a “guinea pig”.
With everything we have told you, you already know what you should not do and thus get rid of WhatsApp banning your account. Fulfilling everything, it will be impossible, unless it is a tremendous mistake.
