WhatsApp now started banning those user’s who are using third party application WhatsApp Plus.
As many users are reporting WhatsApp banned them for 24 hours because they violated the app’s ‘terms of service’ by using a third-party client.
These user’s are reporting through different social networking sites (Facebook, Google, Twitter) that this ban is only for those user’s who are using third party application WhatsApp Plus.
WHY WHATSAPP BANNED WHATSAPP PLUS USERS ?
Whats App also pointed out this, Whatsapp team explained via its FAQ website, that it is against ‘Terms of Service’ to use WhatsApp Plus or any other 3rd-party unofficial app.

As this ban news started coming from Indian’s first so its a assumption that firstly Whats App started banning Indian Whats App + user’s.
But this ban is only for 24 hrs yet so its not a problem , but then also don’t try to install Whats App + because no one knows when it will become permanent ban, and the user’s of Whats App plus those who didn’t banned yet uninstall your app and install official app from Google Play Store ( as Whats App Plus application is only for Android Platform).
