Whatsapp Begins To Ban WhatsApp+ And Other Third-Party App Users

To those of us that like the Customized version of whatsapp where you can customize and design every aspect of WhatsApp to your own taste,  it seems those days are gone,  well maybe for now as the WhatsApp Team has started taking measures to prevent people from using third-party applications to run WhatsApp.

Just incase your wondering what is WhatsApp+ and what's so special about it.  Well its a third party app developed by some tech guys with cool taste,  that allows you chat on whatsapp and gives you full control,  where by you can choose to hide your last seen,  show if you have read a nessage or not,  download funky themes and other cool stuffs.

About two days ago,  i opened my  WhatsApp+ app as usual only to see a screen telling me i was banned from using whatsapp for 24 hours,  and if i needed to get unbanned i should go download the Official WhatsApp from either the Web Page or Play Store

was Banned for 24 hours. 

I clicked on "Learn More"  (as shown in the image above)  and i was redirected to WhatsApp webpage under FAQ and found the article

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. After the 24 hour count down ends you will be able to use WhatsApp.

Well as a true user of WhatsApp+(as this app gives me full control than the official Whatsapp)  i patiently waited for the 24hours to elapse and the ban was removed.  i reopened the App and started chatting as usual telling my colleagues that WhatsApp now ban users and some few hours later after my phone Internet connection got disrupted and i had to reconnect.  I got an even more sever ban from WhatsApp,  and this time around it was for 72hrs that is 3 days of no WhatsApp.
72hours Ban issued by WhatsApp 

Anyways to cut the story short.
 It seems the Official WhatsApp team are not ready to tolerate any other third party app from running the App.  Aside Whatsapp+,  other third party App users that got banned include WhatsAppMD

Till a fix is provided in using this third party apps maybe by copying the official WhatsApp Signature,  thats if they can, I'll advice you'll to go get the Official WhatsApp to avoid being banned,  as they are coming for you!!  😁😀😁
