Unlocking Your WhatsApp Number

How to Unblock Your Number in WhatsApp

Having your number blocked is always an unpleasant situation, especially if the number was associated with business processes. If this is the first time your number has been blocked, it can be unblocked.

What to Do in Case of a Ban?

If we're talking about a soft ban, the easiest thing is to wait for WhatsApp to remove the restrictions.

In the case of a permanent ban, there are not many options. You will need to write to WhatsApp's support service and appeal the block. Indicate that you did not violate WhatsApp's policy and that this is some mistake. As a rule, the first time WhatsApp accommodates and removes the block, but it does not give a second chance, so familiarize yourself with our recommendations for working with the service.
