The short answer is that you violate the WhatsApp terms of service. And they believe you are harmful user and harming other users and server. Sometimes you may cause the outage and using it too far than red lights.

Chat Activities

Some times you are sending contents that people don’t like. The contents include harassment, nude, adult text and instant messages that cause disturbance to users. WhatsApp actually can’t read your contents but the user is blocking you, reporting you spam, and other reports that reaching to a high number. Due to a number of reports against you is cause the ban of your number.

Groups report and suspicious group names

Any harm to the community and unauthorized use of WhatsApp is not allowing you according to the legal info. You are inviting people to the group and user report your activities. Sometimes distributing fake news and infographic contents that hurting people. No choice but actually, and behind the scene, they keep reporting you while you don’t know.

Which is demonstrating to avoid misuse of service but people are still trying to keep sending it partially to other groups.

For instance, if you are sending a file size 70MB to 5 groups, and each group is members are 100+. After that, each member is downloading it to their device which means 500+ members are getting the huge size of files because of you. And what, if you are sending it too far, suppose more than 5 groups. Is it not you causing it the use of high bandwidth to WhatsApp servers. Furthermore, making it busy for a long duration to finish the task that you just create causing spam.

Promoting fake news, violent crimes, viruses and malware

Protecting the community from fake news, WhatsApp is tagging forward messages to let other users know. If similar message contents are fake news and violent crimes, then high chances are to ban you from services. Similarly, users who are spreading viruses and malware getting to punish with similar reason.

Sometimes, you are promoting fake links asking group members to click for fake bounties. They are getting nothing, but harming their devices and reporting you in spam category. Thus it is causing the violation of service and you get permanent ban to use the service anymore.

People find you annoying to them and start blocking you when they are getting too much. Similarly, several users are reporting against you and it keeps counting against your profile. When you reach the limit, causing much distraction to other users, then it is automatically triggering against your profile number to get a ban as soon as possible.

Use of WhatsApp GB and Plus

These Apps are the third party and are not officially WhatsApp Apps. While it is not allowing to use any third-party app to access your account instead of the official one. Since the security measure of other apps are not controllable and it is not sure that you are safe. It is the reason, that you are not allowed to use other third-party Apps such as GP and plus. If you are using a similar App, it is strongly recommending to switch to the original App as soon as possible.

You are not in their contact list while you are broadcasting them
