Types of Ban on WhatsApp
There are only two types of WhatsApp ban. One is Temporary and the 2nd is Permanent. Let me explain each in more detail so that you can understand better. Here are the two types of WhatsApp Ban:
Temporary Ban on WhatsApp
It is a time-based restriction from using WhatsApp. However, a temporary ban lasts for 24 to 48 hours depending on the violation. WhatsApp automatically removes the ban after the given time is over. There is nothing you can do about it but wait patiently.
However, the user can then use his/her account as usual. If you get a temporary ban on WhatsApp, then consider it as your good luck and a warning from WhatsApp. Because, as per WA they never issue a warning before they issue a ban on accounts. Thus you may need to stop doing what is suspicious on WhatsApp and avoid getting banned in the future. Also, make sure that you are using WhatsApp without a valid phone number.
Permanent Ban on WhatsApp
As its name, it is a permanent WhatsApp ban and may last forever in rare cases. Usually, they ban accounts if the account activity violates their terms of service. However, as WhatsApp never issue a warning before they ban accounts, you have a chance to submit a request to get unbanned. If you think WA made a mistake, then you can contact them and explain to them what is wrong. If you are lucky, they will remove the ban and unban your number in a few hours. If not the ban will lost forever.
Reasons for “Why WhatsApp Banned my Number”
WhatsApp clearly mentioned its terms of service. If you ever violate their terms of services, they will ban your account permanently. So, it is important for all of us to take care and read those terms carefully, after all, we are using WhatsApp for free. Though it is a perfect IM (Instant Messaging) app and is a part of our daily communication with friends, family members, business, etc. Here are the common reasons why WhatsApp has banned your account/number:
Sending Bulk Spam Messages
You might have started sending and receiving hundreds/thousands of spam messages. It could be groups or individuals but sending messages more than usual is considered spamming on WA. I know you can only send messages in bulk to a few of your contacts, but there are people using third-party tools to do so. Instead, you can create a WhatsApp group and increase the group members’ limit up to 10K. Also, you can use WhatsApp Business instead.
However, WhatsApp temporarily bans those numbers who send spam messages. However, in such a case, you can get your account unbanned within 24 or 48 hours automatically. You will be able to use your account then. So there is nothing you can do about it but wait patiently.
Inappropriate Links and Contents
Never send inappropriate links or illegal and adult content on WhatsApp. For your information, WA’s advanced algorithm detects such links and contents. Also, anyone who doesn’t like to get such links to spammy sites and inappropriate content, reports such messages. The WhatsApp team investigates such messages and ban accounts with such activities.
Thus they will permanently ban your account and you will never be able to get your account unbanned. Believe it or not, they don’t care about it and may never release the ban. As a result, you will lose your account.
Using Mod Version of WhatsApp
Thousands of people love to use the Mod Version of WhatsApp. As such version (Whatsapp GB, Plus, OG, etc) offers amazing features not available in the default app. These are unofficial and while using them, you may get a temporary ban on your number/account.
Don’t worry it is gonna be a time-based ban and might last for 24 to 48 hours. In rare cases, it may take longer up to a week. The solution to that is to uninstall the Mod Version of WhatsApp, install a fresh and official WA app from Play Store or App Store, and wait for some time. Then try adding your number, if you are lucky, the banned will be removed from your number/account automatically. In short, WhatsApp will unban your number after a day or two.
Use of Offensive Words in Chats
If you are using offensive words in individual or group chats on WhatsApp. There is a chance that you will get a temporary ban. Let me explain how. Look if you are sending offensive words in a group chat and there are hundreds of users over there, many of them might report it. Thus WhatsApp may take a look to investigate your messages, and as a result, you will get a temporary ban. There is no need to worry about it, but if you repeat the same in the future, the ban will be then permanent which may lead to losing your account.
