WhatsApp is one of the most popular messaging platforms in the world, with millions of active users each month.
The popular messaging app is a hit among many smartphone users because it offers access to a large number of features, and it is available for free. Users can use the app for a variety of purposes, but in some cases, you will be banned if you do not respect the rules.
In recent months a large number of users have noted that they were banned from the service even if they did not seem to do anything wrong. However, the reason was spotted quite quickly by other users. According to one post on a popular forum platform, the admins of a popular university group decided to use a forbidden word as a new name for the group, and every member received a ban.
Another user noted that all the members of his group were banned after someone changed the subject of the group into a forbidden word. The Terms of Service for the app include a list of words that are frowned upon, and it seems that some users wanted to see if there are any consequences for using them.
A quick visit to the official website will inform users that the submission of content (among which we can count status, images, messages, videos, and others) which is illegal, obscene, threatening, unethical or very aggressive is deemed to be a violation of the Terms of Service and WhatsApp will not hesitate to punish those who break the rule.
In some cases, users will receive a temporary ban, and they can use the service again after a while. Keep in mind that repeated offenses can lead to a permanent ban. Avoid groups that may decide to use offensive content since there is no way to contest the ban and you will have to change your phone number if you want to use the service again.
