Sharing is caring!

Snapchat is a mobile messaging application that you can use to share videos, drawings, photos and send simple messages. The application is free and it can be downloaded to your mobile device directly from the official store. The application has been released back in 2011 and it didn’t take too long to become quite popular on the market.

Because of its popularity, Facebook has made an offer of $3 billion, but one of the co-founders has declined it. Soon enough, Facebook has released a similar application that was named Slingshot, but it proved to be way less good than Snapchat.



Anyway, today we will talk about an issue that caused a good amount of users to get banned on Snapchat. According to some posts from Reddit, many users have got their accounts banned for 12 hours after the service has detected that they are using Snapchat+.

It is good to know that the Snapchat+ is a hacked version of the application that’s available on Cydia. In other words, this application can be installed only on a jailbroken version of iOS.

Some users claim that they’ve received the ban message even if they were not using a third-party application for Snapchat. We’re not sure exactly what’s causing the 12-hours ban, but we suggest you to uninstall any third-party application that you use for Snapchat.

According to SkySouth, a Reddit user, Snapchat is currently preparing to ban all people who are using Phantom, Snapchat+ and other applications that are removing the sponsored content. SkySouth also claims that the company is enforcing the TOS which all the users have agreed by signing up.

So, if you are using a third-party application for Snapchat, we suggest you to uninstall it right away or there are high chances that you will get a temporally ban which could also turn into a permanent one.
