4. Is It Safe to Use GB WhatsApp

Now you know how to perform a GBWhatsApp download — but should you really do it? Is it really worth using a modified app for extra features? Is it safe? That’s what this section will explain!

You see, the GB WhatsApp app isn’t officially provided by Meta, which is the company that owns WhatsApp.

  • If the company detects that you’re using a modified version of the app, they will ban you from WhatsApp altogether. Most of the time this ban is temporary, but it can also be permanent.
  • Furthermore, GB WhatsApp isn’t as secure as the normal WhatsApp app. The developer of this mod can decide to get access to your data at any time, which can cause data leaks.

All in all, it entirely depends on you whether you want to compromise your privacy and security to get additional features. If you do, you should make sure you’re not sharing sensitive information with people on GB WhatsApp.

Plus, don’t give the app unnecessary permissions.
