How To Fix WhatsApp Banned My Number For 72 Hours:

If you notice that your number has been banned, the solution is to wait for the 72-hour period to elapse. During this time, it’s important to abstain from any further violations or attempts to bypass the ban, as it may lead to more extreme results.

There are some methods that you can try:

1. Try Registering Again

Follow the steps below:

🔴 Steps To Follow:

Step 1: Uninstall WhatsApp

First, open your settings, go to the ‘Apps’ section, and search for ‘Whatsapp’. You can also press and hold on to the app for two seconds and go to the app info section. After entering the app info section, you can see three options: ‘Open’, ‘Uninstall’, and ‘Force stop’.

Click on Apps
Click on Whatsapp app

Tap the ‘Uninstall’ option, then press ‘OK’ to confirm it. You can also see after holding for two seconds on the app, you can see two pop-ups, ‘Remove’ and ‘Uninstall’. You can also uninstall the application from here.

Click on Uninstall

Step 2: Add Number and Register WhatsApp

After uninstalling the application, open the Play Store and download the WhatsApp app again. When done, open the app and tap ‘Agree & Continue’ to accept their terms and conditions.

Install Whatsapp

Now you have to enter your phone number because WhatsApp needs it to identify you, and you can find other users by their phone numbers. After that, confirm your phone number, and WhatsApp will send you a verification code via text message. 

Click agree and continue

Step 3: Verify & Setup and Done

Now open your text messages and copy the code and paste it over the app where they want. Now in the setup part, first add your name, and you can also add your profile picture. Now allow access to your contacts and photos. After that, you can see the message icon at the bottom right of the screen.

Click on Ok button

Then by pressing ‘New contact’ and ‘New group’ you can individually send messages to someone and create a WhatsApp group, respectively. After pressing the ‘three-dots’ icon at the top, go to ‘Settings’, and you can customize your account from this section.

Click on Done

You can change your chat’s theme, wallpaper, and notifications settings from here, as well as your WhatsApp privacy settings for profile pictures, statuses, etc.

2. Contact Support for Help

You can use this method if you do not want to register again on WhatsApp. There remains a risk in the re-registering process: the loss of data.

Now, if your WhatsApp account is banned and you want to reactivate it, then you should contact the support team of WhatsApp for help. As you have already been banned from WhatsApp when you try to open the application and enter your phone number, you will see a pop-up message ‘Your phone number is banned from using WhatsApp’. 

🔴 Steps To Follow:

Step 1: To contact the WhatsApp technical support team for help, open the WhatsApp app on your mobile. Then enter your phone number. You will see a pop-up message that you are banned. There you can see the Support button that appears on the screen.

Click on Support
Click on Next

Frequently Asked Questions:

1. How much time does it take to unbanned WhatsApp number?

WhatsApp has two types of bans: temporary bans and permanent bans. After contacting the support team of WhatsApp, if you get the mail within 24 hours, you can say your account got a temporary ban (sometimes they can take up to 72 hours).

But If you get a negative answer from WhatsApp or if they don’t ever give you an answer for a long time, then it means your ban is permanent. In this case, you have nothing to do; wait for some time and send them some repetitive emails. Still, if you don’t get your account back, then use the last option to change your WhatsApp number and create a new WhatsApp account.

2. How long does WhatsApp support take to reply?

It depends on you in which situation and what content you send through your application. In general WhatsApp, the team takes 24 hrs to give a reply, but sometimes the time limit can reach up to 3 days. Suppose the content you have written is too complex to understand; in that case, they may take more days to reply.

As just mentioned, the situation depends on how long it will take; here the situation means, suppose WhatsApp has any server issue and in that time you send them the application, then first of all, due to heavy traffic, your application reaches late. Secondly, it takes a lot of time to be reviewed.
