The popular messaging service owned by Facebook, WhatsApp, reminds all users not to use applications that have been modified by third parties and for those who use their accounts to be temporarily blocked.

If you receive a message in the application stating that your account is ‘temporarily blocked’, that means you must have used a WhatsApp version that is not supported by the official application, as quoted on the FAQ page of WhatsApp.

But don’t worry, blocking is temporary because users will be able to continue using WhatsApp by downloading the official application.

Then, what applications can make your account blocked?

Some applications that are not supported by WhatsApp include WhatsApp Plus and GB WhatsApp, which are WhatsApp applications that have been modified by third parties.

“WhatsApp does not support this third-party application because we cannot validate its security practices,” WhatsApp explained.

For users who are now using the unofficial WhatsApp application, before switching to the official application it is recommended to back up chat history so that important chat history is not lost.
