Locked by mistake? WhatsApp is working on an in-app tool to report account bans

In the future, those affected could perhaps request that the blocking of their account be checked again in the app. Facebook could thus adapt the messenger more and more to the other platforms of the group.

Facebook’s subsidiary, by and large, does a good job of blocking questionable accounts. Sometimes, however, the WhatsApps ban system also falls victim to innocent users. Reactivating the account is difficult and tedious. And above all, annoying because these users usually did nothing wrong.

WhatsApp is now working on an in-app tool with which this can be reported more easily so that affected users can easily unblock their profile in the future. This is what the messenger experts report from WABetaInfo and share first screenshots of the feature test.

WhatsApp is experimenting with new features

Facebook could want to further adapt the messenger with the new reporting tool to the large platforms of the group. For the Facebook platform, for example, there is the Oversight Board, which checks problematic cases of blocking. And Instagram users can also request a new check of their account bans in the app.

However, WhatsApp could not only resemble the other platforms of the Facebook group more and more in terms of security features. For the news app, the group is also experimenting with functions that we are only familiar with from social media platforms. The company has just rolled out the view-once mode for the WhatsApp beta version. With this, photos and videos disappear again after viewing them once. We already know this feature from Instagram, but above all from Competition platform Snapchat. Which functions await us in WhatsApp in the coming months and years will therefore remain exciting.
