WhatsApp Temporarily Bans WhatsApp Plus users, Working on a Web client Too

WhatsApp is the most popular messaging app, which many youngsters can’t do without. Some users who have been accessing WhatsApp via third party clients, especially WhatsApp+ have been temporarily banned for 24 hours for violation of terms of service.


Here is what WhatsApp has to say – “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 ourwebsite or Google Play. Then, you will be able to use WhatsApp. “

The third party client is a very popular one with user base of several hundred thousand. Those who have been banned will have to wait another 24 hours before they can continue with WhatsApp, even if they switch to official app from Playstore.

If you haven’t been banned already, switch to the official app immediately, before WhatsApp imposes this 24 hour ban on your device. The move is not unethical or surprising as these third party chat clients, which aren’t listed officially on Playstore, make use of WhatsApp network without any permission.


According to recent leaks, WhatsApp is also working on an Airdroid like desktop client which should be really cool. According to screenshots shared by a Mexican user in unofficial WhatsApp community. We do think several users will like operating this popular chat client from their personal computer, and makes up for something to be excited about. WhatsApp will also add much awaited voice calling feature to the popular messaging app very soon.
