Whatsapp

In a surprising turn of events, Whatsapp is banning users who use modded Whatsapp apps like GBWhatsapp. Whatsapp is the most used messaging app across platforms. The app comes with loads of features, but there are always some users who want more from the app. For such users, apps like GBWhatsapp, OGWhatsapp or Whatsapp Plus comes into play which offers a lot more features especially when it comes to customization and privacy.

These modded apps have been there for years and boast millions of daily users among them. But now it looks like things are coming to a bitter end as Whatsapp has started taking action against users who are using these apps. From the last few days, some users of GBWhatsapp have been reporting on Twitter that they are getting temporarily banned from using Whatsapp.

Whatsapp ban

The reason for this temporary ban according to Whatsapp is the violation of its terms of service. Some users were banned for 9 hours while some were just banned for an hour. It’s not a surprise that these modded apps like GBWhatsapp, Whatsapp Plus violates the Whatsapp’s terms of service. They offer some features which are complete against Whatsapp’s policies.

There has been no statement given by Whatsapp regarding this, so we don’t know as of yet that whether these bans will continue or go away. These mod apps have millions of users, so its highly likely that they won’t go away with a fight and will surely figure out a way to avoid these bans.

What are your thoughts regarding these modded Whatsapp apps? Do you think it’s fair to ban users of these apps? Let us know in the comment section down below.

    It’s either that whatsapp is jealous of the mods and they are losing customers so they are trying to get us back by banning the mods so that we run back to original whatsapp

    What’s app should stop banning and if what’s app wants that nobody should use third party app. He should develop some technology that what’s should not get tegistered on third party version instead of banning the users.

    What’s app has no privacy. I hate it. B people always know what’s going on with you and it’s not safe not is it fair. I need my what’s app plus because sometimes I don’t want to be bothered and I need my privacy.

    I hope this banning shit stops soon.

    Coming straight from the Bahamas.

    Maybe someone should do a petition so that what’s app itself can be banned completely. And we only use what’s app plus, GB & OG.
    I am outraged.

    Sad. Whatsapp isn’t offering enough customized features. They should either modify and offer similar features to improve privacy and usability or they should stop banning such mod apks. It should be left to consumer’s choice and preference.

    How whatsapp is detecting that we are using GBwhatsapp or other modded apps. I guess whatsapp itself is violating Android norms by looking into other apps data.

    The modded version is actually better then the original WhatsApp Messenger… I’ve tried my ways with both and the modded version allows better utilisation and customisation of the original and a bit boring WhatsApp…
