Few months ago, Facebook-owned instant messaging app – WhatsApp – in an official statement planned to temporarily ban users who uses the unofficial versions of Whatsapp.
If multiple users reports you or they feel you’ve done something wrong, you might probably get banned on Whatsapp.
Some users are currently facing their suspensions on Whatsapp because they are using an unofficial version of Whatsapp (like the GBWhatsapp, OGWhatsapp, Whatsapp Plus etc). Suspension varies for different users. Some were given 30 minutes, 1 hour and 2 hours suspension. Others might get longer.
How To Reactivate Banned Or Suspended WhatsApp Account
To reactivate your phone number and make it work again on Whatsapp is quite simple. First of all, you need to understand the “Rules & Regulations” that have been violated and be ready to correct it by making changes.
Uninstall all third-party or modded versions of Whatsapp applications on your phone. Delete groups and chats with users that haven’t saved your number (or ask them to save your number as a contact on their phone).
With that being done, wait for WhatsApp to re-enable your phone number to use Whatsapp service.
The time to restore your account varies. It should take nothing more than 48 hours to a maximum of “infinite”. Usually, if the problem is not serious, this takes place after 48-72 hours maximum.
On the contrary, if your account was permanently banned because the violation is considered overly serious, the only option is to create a new WhatsApp account with a new phone number.
