WhatsApp to be agressive on third party apps

WhatsApp is putting a suspension of 24 hours on its users who access its services from an unofficial Android app WhatsApp Plus.

WhatsApp Plus is built on WhatsApp providing extra facilities and customisations.

The Facebook owned messaging service says that WhatsApp Plus compromises its fast and secure services.

"Our goal is always to keep WhatsApp fast and secure for the people who use it - it's the most important thing we do," said a spokesman for the firm.

"Third-parties that have built unauthorised functionality on top of WhatsApp create issues for people including lost messages.

"This goes against the experience we work hard to give people and we won't let it continue. Starting today, we are taking aggressive action against unauthorised apps and alerting the people who use them."

WhatsApp has 700 million users who send an average of 30 billion messages a day.
