WhatsApp Suspends Users for Unauthorized Third Party Apps

WhatsApp does not like it when people use third party applications that have not been officially sanctioned by the company. The service has gone so far as to ban its users for up to 24 hours as a punishment for the sin of using an unauthorized external app.

Some people have received a message saying, “You’re temporarily banned from WhatsApp because you may have violated our terms of service.”

Such apps include Whatsapp+ and WhatsapMD. The MD here stands for material design, not for medicine. Such apps claim to offer ways to improve WhatsApp. Regardless, users should always be cautious about mixing unauthorized apps or software with any trusted program or app like a web browser.

The real WhatsApp has stated about third parties: “WhatsApp Plus is an application that was not developed by WhatsApp, nor is it authorized by WhatsApp. The developers of WhatsApp Plus have no relationship to WhatsApp, and we do not support WhatsApp Plus. Please be aware that WhatsApp Plus contains source code which WhatsApp cannot guarantee as safe and that your private information is potentially being passed to 3rd parties without your knowledge or authorization. Please uninstall your application and install an authorized version of WhatsApp from our website or Google Play. Then, you will be able to use WhatsApp.”

Dr. Mounib Al Rifai, the owner of the official WhatsApp+, responded saying, “Guys if you are getting this error don’t panic we are working hard to find a fix for the issue as soon as possible in the mean time you can use the normal WhatsApp till a fix is found. Very sorry for this issue as WhatsApp is pushing us into a corner.”
