The three common WhatsApp mistakes that could lead to your account being BANNED – especially on Android | The Sun

WHATSAPP users are just realising they common mistakes could actually lead to their account being banned.

The Meta-owned messaging service has some very strict rules if you're not careful.

WhatsApp's terms and conditions explain exactly how you risk being thrown off – and some are seemingly innocent mistakes.

These are the three biggest WhatsApp errors that could see you chucked off the platform.

Don't use fake WhatsApp apps

Some people aren't keen on the WhatsApp interface and fancy something a bit different.

So, they turn to a number of ripoff apps on Android.

GBWhatsApp and WhatsApp Plus are just two well-known copycat apps.

They still allow you to message your mates through WhatsApp but the app itself looks and feels very different.

The thing is, WhatsApp doesn't want you using these fakes to access their service.

If experts at the firm detect that you're using a WhatsApp one of them, your account risks being banned.

Sending too many messages

Chat all day long on WhatsApp if you like.

But messaging too often and getting on people's nerves could land you in hot water.

This is especially the case if you spam too many groups with nonsense.

If a large volume of people report you it'll raise the alarm at WhatsApp HQ.

It's at this point you could have your account restricted.

Spreading hoaxes

We all like a laugh but there are limits – and WhatsApp does not like dangerous hoaxes.

Spreading fake news and hoaxes is against the rules.

If WhatsApp catches you doing this – probably via people reporting you for it – you risk being banned.
