WhatsApp does a good job to ban accounts that execute bulk or automated actions but unfortunately, a lot of innocent people are often banned on WhatsApp because their accounts are wrongly flagged from their automated systems.

We have talked about why WhatsApp bans user accounts, how to protect your account and the flaws in their systems 3 months ago. WhatsApp has automated systems to detect illegal activity, but their systems aren’t perfect. Just think that several people got their accounts banned wrongly, and WhatsApp Support hasn’t been immediately able to restore them.
WhatsApp is now working on several improvements to restore user accounts, developing an in-app tool to review bans!
When an account is banned, the user can request a review within WhatsApp:
When a request is submitted, the user will receive an in-app notification when WhatsApp has reviewed their account. Note that reviews typically take about 24 hours and chats aren’t deleted in the meantime.
WhatsApp might have wrongly flagged your account and they will restore it after the review. If their systems correctly found an illegal activity in your WhatsApp account, the ban will be confirmed and you need to register a new number to use WhatsApp.
This feature has been spotted in a future update of WhatsApp beta for iOS, but it will be developed on WhatsApp beta for Android as well. Just wait for it.
