Tips to prevent WhatsApp account from getting banned

WhatsApp is one of the most popular instant messaging applications globally, with over 2.2 billion active users from over 100 countries. Having such a large user base, the company needs to take some steps to ensure that the platform stays in good standing and doesn’t become a breeding ground for spam.

To ensure that WhatsApp remains spam-free as much as possible, the company relies on several technologies and, if necessary, bans accounts that violate the platform’s terms of service. It is good to be aware of the basic things to avoid being blocked by the platform.

Here are some of the tips you can follow to make sure your WhatsApp account stays in good standing and isn’t banned from using it.

Do not send bulk messages

The company uses machine learning and other users’ reports to detect accounts that engage in bulk messaging or use automated messaging or autodial tools. Accounts that are detected to use any of these are banned by the company.

Restrict the use of the transmission list

Broadcasting a message on WhatsApp means that it is sent to everyone from your contact list and to those who have your contact saved. When the broadcast list feature is used excessively, it may become annoying to your contacts and they may report your account. If there are multiple users reporting your account, your account will be banned from using the service.

Be careful when forwarding messages

WhatsApp-Forward-Label

WhatsApp adds a label to forwarded messages, indicating that the sender has forwarded the message received from someone else. Additionally, there is also a limit to the number of times a message can be forwarded by the user. This was done after there were severe consequences of widely relayed messages with misinformation. So, if you are unsure of the authenticity of the message, it is best not to forward the message.

Comply with the Terms of Service

It is important to make sure that you follow the terms and conditions set by WhatsApp for using its services. Violation of any of the terms will result in your account being banned. It prohibits users from posting fakes or engaging in illegal, defamatory and harassing behavior, among others. It’s a good idea to check out the “Acceptable Use of Our Services” section of WhatsApp and the Terms of Service.

How to restore a banned WhatsApp account?

If your WhatsApp account has already been banned, the only option you have to remove it is to file an appeal with the company. You can choose to email the company or request a review on the WhatsApp application itself and wait for the company to review the account.
