About account bans for unofficial apps

Using an unauthorized application and/or unsupported device violates our Terms of Service and can result in your account being banned.Unofficial apps are fake WhatsApp apps, developed by third parties, which violate our Terms of Service. We don't support these apps because we can't validate their security practices. Learn more about unofficial apps and why we don’t support them in this article.
To continue using WhatsApp, you must download the official WhatsApp app. You can download WhatsApp or the WhatsApp Business app on our website or from official app stores.

Keep in mind, we can reinstate an account ban if the account activity continues to violate our Terms of Service. We recommend carefully reviewing the “Acceptable Use of Our Services” section of our Terms of Service to learn more about the appropriate uses of WhatsApp and the activities that violate our Terms of Service.
