” Banned” by Whatsapp

By now Facebook suspends the accounts of its users rather often, even if it decrees the sanctions in a summary manner. Many of us do not know and do not imagine that it is possible to have your account suspended even on WhatsApp, if you violate certain rules. Better to be informed, however, because if all in all Facebook for most of us is confined to the recreational and free time, and then having the account suspended will cause us the most profound irritation, Whatsapp is a tool often essential for the work or for other urgent and important communications. Here are the things you must absolutely avoid to keep your account.

Send illegal, obscene, defamatory or threatening messages
Send messages that promote violent crimes
Create a person’s fake account or impersonate it in some way
Send too many messages to people who are not in your contacts
Attempt to alter or modify the Whatsapp codes
Send viruses or malware
Try to hack Whatsapp servers to spy on someone
Use Whatsapp Plus (a fraudulent app that has nothing to do with Whatsapp and steals user data for commercial purposes)
Come blocked by many users
Be reported by many users
Many of the rules you have seen are obvious for civil and normal people, but some others are not at all, especially if you use WhatsApp for promotional purposes or for organizing events that, for example, involve many people who are not your contacts. And remember that the algorithms that sanction violations do not have a sense of humor: a message could be considered “illegal, obscene, defamatory and threatening” even if you sent it as a joke to a friend with whom you share the taste of humor black.
