WhatsApp bans third-party client users for life


Lately the developers of WhatsApp are affecting the consequences of using third-party clients to use their application, consequently, since January using third-party WhatsApp clients could cost you a temporary ban, however now WhatsApp bans users of the third-party customers for life, a somewhat drastic measure.

Recently they warned us that only the official client of the application is allowed to use their servers, as a consequence those users of substitutes such as WhatsApp + and WhatsApp MD (on Android) have been banned from the service, these users appear consequently the happy message "Your phone number is not authorized to use our service." 

These bans were initially temporary, from 24 to 72 hours, however, repeat offenders have been banned for life in massive numbers lately. Against the current, the developer of WhatsApp + on Android is working on its code to be able to bypass the detection system, but for now there is no guarantee that it will work, so it has urged its users to use the client again. official courier.

We do not enter to assess the suitability of using these clients, without a doubt the WhatsApp + tweak is a great addition to make up for the many deficiencies of the official client, even more so when we talk about the iOS client that does not even allow to hide the famous blue tick. SHowever, this witch hunt is not affecting iOS users yet, but it is more than evident that WhatsApp is putting the batteries in this regard and makes us doubt whether or not we will be the next.

    If they stopped doing witch hunts and focused on making a worthy application for iOS, another rooster would sing to them, that the app is disgusting to use.

    1.    Use WellElCastellanoCojones said

      I ask myself that Dany, to see if the editor enlightens us and explains what "ban" is?

      1.    Miguel Hernández said

        Buenas tardes. Ban is synonymous with "block", "suspend", "prohibit", "restrict", "cancel".

        I leave you more information regarding the use of the word in computer jargon: http://es.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ban

    "Against the current, the developer of WhatsApp + on Android is working on his code to be able to bypass the detection system ..."

    The WhatsApp + developer stopped any development of the app in mid-January. All the later versions of antibaneo and others have nothing to do with him, be more rigorous

    If we left WhatsApp and went more to Line or Telegram, surely they would stop touching the lame….

    I use telegram and I agree with those who use it. It's a thousand times better .. Especially speed! I wish people started using telegram. Fuck whastapp and especially for cheating for example with the latest update "big fixes" and it turns out that the widget disappears to call directly from the chat, send a review and it is never published or you try to send an email to their page and they send you another one telling you to send them another email. Shameful!!!

    That if they use any whatsapp app that is not official, they will delete your account and you will not be able to use that number on whatsapp anymore

    I think it's great that WhatsApp is blocking, especially to demonstrate to those who make apps that they claimed they were unbearable and to all those who believed it that they are less smart than they thought. If you don't like the application, grab the door and leave, we don't have to put up with crybabies. An app that is free and that nobody pointed you in the head for you to use. If you don't like it, go ahead and rattle the other side.

      You should inform yourself better and see that IF you pay for the use of whatsapp, and while you PAY, for a service, they should not care which client you use. It's not that they don't like it, it's IMPROVING a product, and I don't think any brand in history has complained that their users want to improve their product.

    2.    Miguel Hernández said

      Good afternoon Ruth. The use of WhatsApp is paid by subscription. Therefore, abandoning the application has a lot of crime, taking into account the free alternatives that exist.

    What a pity that few people know or at least use Telegram (which by the way I consider it better) if not, watsapp would not have the strength it has

    I doubt it is even legal to ban. Has anyone read the conditions?

    To use Telegram

  17.   ankroos said

    By the time the damn calls that were announced in 2014 and we're already two years late. The truth is that telegram is much better than whatsapp what happens that the fanboys do not want to change.

    On the one hand: What people do for not paying € 1 a year
    On the other hand: it is curious that they care so much about privacy on WhatsApp while allowing Google to use all the information it has about them to do business.
