However, there are so many instances, where some accounts are flagged from their automated system accidentally while others due to the nature of the post.

The report says that users will get an option to contact WhatsApp Support right within the app when they try to log into their banned WhatsApp account. Currently, you don’t get the option in the messaging app and you will have to visit the support page of WhatsApp to drop a review request to regain your account.

The latest beta version of WhatsApp shows the revoke option for banned accounts within the app and once you opt for it, WhatsApp Support will review your account and device info to “check for illegal activity that goes against their terms of service.” When you drop a request for the review, you will also be required to enter some additional details.

How to appeal to revoke a suspended account?

After submitting the review, there are chances that your account could get restored if the platform discovers that your account was banned by mistake. Do keep in mind that if WhatsApp finds that your account has violated their Terms of Service. Then you won’t be able to re-use your old account and you will also not get a third chance.

The cited source has spotted the new feature in the Android beta version of the app. The report suggests that the same will also be made available to iOS users in the coming weeks. It is currently unknown when the new feature will be released to the stable version of WhatsApp.

You can still drop a review request if you are using the stable version and your account is banned. You just need to visit the platform’s contact page and email them requesting the cancellation of your banned account.
