WhatsApp Plus is an “unofficial” version of WhatsApp that is used by more and more users because it comes with more features than the official application. It seems that the developers of the official WhatsApp application got quite mad that all their users are leaving the application and found a way to ban those who are using the “alternative” application.
However, it seems that the WhatsApp Plus developers released the version 6.87, which prevents you from getting banned. This means that all users can switch back to the alternative application and enjoy again all the features that come with it.
People prefer to use WhatsApp Plus because it allows you to customize the chat windows, fonts and backgrounds, the way you want. However, keep in mind that even if you use the WhatsApp Plus application, you will still need to pay the 0.99 dollars per year, to continue using WhatsApp’s services.
WhatsApp Plus app has been declared “illegal” right after the release of the first version. It got published in the official stores for a while, but shortly after that, the official developers of WhatsApp requested those stores to remove this application. But this didn’t stopped users from downloading and installing it to their devices, as the application can be found all over the internet.
Downloading and Installing WhatsApp Plus 6.87 on Android
First of all, uninstall the official WhatsApp application from your device. Then, you can download WhatsApp Plus 6.87 from XDA Developers forum or APKmirror website.
Once you got the APK file on your Android device, you can start installing it but only after you make sure that the Unknown Sources option is enabled. To check if it’s enabled, go to Settings->Applications or Settings->Security and make sure that the box in front of Unknown Sources is checked.
When the installation is complete, you will use your mobile phone number to get into your WhatsApp account and after that you can start using all the features that WhatsApp Plus comes with.
HINT: Keep in mind that even if the new WhatsApp Plus version prevents you from getting banned, it will NOT remove the ban. With other words, in case you’ve got banned because you were using an older WhatsApp Plus version, you will need to wait for the ban to expire before logging back to your WhatsApp account.
