Is it safe to use WhatsApp Mods like GB WhatsApp??😨😨😨

Lets Start By Knowing What GB WhatsApp/WhatsApp mod apps are…

So What Exactly are WhatsApp Mods(GB WhatsApp)?

GB WhatsApp is a clone of WhatsApp or you can say MOD of WhatsApp but with some extended features which includes hiding last seen or online status, hiding double tick and changing messenger themes etc. Though GB WhatsApp is not an official product of WhatsApp Inc, it is created by a third party developer and is not authorized from WhatsApp Inc. 

GB WhatsApp has all the functionalities that the original WhatsApp contains, the main reason behind this is it is created by using the original WhatsApp’s source code. This MOD contains some add-on functionalities like:

  • Hiding last seen, last seen for specific contact, read receipts, message delivered.

  • Extended capacity to set to group name, broadcast messages at one time, write more characters in your status.

Is it Safe to use GB WhatsApp?

As GB WhatsApp is not an official app of WhatsApp Inc neither it is affiliated with them so there is no guarantee of your data and security, as these apps can compromise on your data privacy. If you are willing to use GB WhatsApp then you should be aware of a few facts like you could get banned from official WhatsApp, or even Facebook. There are few other similar apps like WhatsApp Plus and YOWhatsApp which are also considered as third party WhatsApp messenger apps and WhatsApp Inc doesn’t support any of them.

According to WhatsApp FAQs, “ Unsupported apps, such as WhatsApp Plus, GB WhatsApp, or apps that claim to move your WhatsApp chats between phones, are altered versions of WhatsApp. These unofficial apps are developed by third parties and violate our Terms of Service. WhatsApp doesn’t support these third-party apps because we can’t validate their security practices.”

Opinion

As mentioned above, WhatsApp Inc doesn’t support the practices they (MODs) do with your data so it is kind of unsafe to use WhatsApp MODs, they might cause a permanent ban on your official WhatsApp account. Meta also has the right to ban you from Facebook.  The most alarming thing is we don’t know how our data will be used by the owners of these MODs. Because there are no monetization methods implemented in these MODs, they might use our data to get the benefits from these MODs.

Expert recommendation is to stick with the official WhatsApp as they are working on adding new features day by day and is safe to use. There is an old saying which states “It’s better to be safe than sorry”.
