    Your WhatsApp account can be blocked if you are caught using another app that looks and feels just like Facebook-owned WhatsApp, but which is actually a separate app altogether. So, if you are using WhatsApp Plus, you need to quickly remove it or face the consequences as WhatsApp has warned that if anyone on its platform is using other apps like WhatsApp Plus or GB WhatsApp, then they stand a very good chance of being blocked, perhaps even permanently.

    Why people go to apps like WhatsApp Plus? The biggest reason is that WhatsApp-like apps, including WhatsApp Plus and GB WhatsApp offer a number of standout features that are not available on the official WhatsApp app. While WhatsApp is racing to launch a huge number of features, it still does not have many of them that are available on these apps.

    Why people should not use apps like WhatsApp Plus: WhatsApp provides total security to its users when they send and receive chats. No one else can see what they are sending or receiving, not even WhatsApp. The reason being WhatsApp has deployed end-to-end encryption. However, those using other apps, which load these extra features on top of WhatsApp, do not have the benefit of security as these chats are not encrypted thereby exposing them as well as others to risk of hacking, malicious software even phishing. As such, these third-party apps can be very risky to use. In effect, Apps like WhatsApp Plus are unofficial versions of WhatsApp, says Express.

    Big lesson for WhatsApp: Since there is a need for these features, the company should scramble and provide the same to them as soon as possible and thereby take WhatsApp Plus or GB WhatsApp entirely out of the picture even as it makes its users happy at the same time.
