GBWhatsApp: what is this WhatsApp MOD, and what is it for

GBWhatsApp is a MOD for WhatsApp. This means it is a modification of the official app and that, although it features a similar appearance, it has tools not present in the official app.

Among the functions offered by GBWhatsApp, we find the option of visualizing conversations in a bubble, as in Facebook Messenger. It also displays a notification when a contact is online and lets you remove the blue checkmarks. On top of this, it has a mode to stay invisible on the platform. As you can see, we are talking about useful small functions that enrich the user experience and let you get even more out of this messaging service.

We will address this issue later, but you must know that GBWhatsApp is an unofficial project that violates WhatsApp terms and conditions. Therefore, logging in with your account using this modified app could have serious consequences, such as temporary or permanent blocking of your account.

How it works and how to use GBWhatsApp

Using GBWhatsApp should not be difficult for WhatsApp users. Why? Because it is an official application modified by a third party. So, in essence, using it is the same.

Here is an example of the steps you must follow to log in. As shown in the image below, after selecting the language, it is necessary to accept the conditions and enter your phone number. The only difference with the official app is that GBWhatsApp offers a button to restore a previously made backup.

Once you have logged in with your credentials, the main screen does not differ from the one you have seen in the official app. However, it is easy to find some functions included in the MOD, such as the one that lets you activate the dark or airplane mode.

Additionally, GBWhatsApp has its own menu to access all the tools it offers. From it, you can alter certain features of the official app, check for updates, or install themes, among other things.

In short, GBWhatsApp works exactly like WhatsApp. The only thing different about this app is the extra utilities it adds.

Is it safe and legal to use GBWhatsApp?

GBWhatsApp is now installed on your device. But is it really safe? If you have downloaded it from our servers, you can be sure that the APK does not contain any virus. However, this is not the only risk you should consider.

Although GBWhatsApp connects to WhatsApp servers to function, it could be monitoring everything you do. The truth is that we cannot say for sure that this is the case, but neither can we deny it. The fact that there is no public access to the source code prevents us from knowing if there are hidden modifications that violate users' privacy.

On the other hand, is it legal? The truth is that we are not aware of any country that has banned GBWhatsApp. However, this is an illegitimate modification of an application owned by Meta. This could be a problem in your country, depending on the piracy laws that apply.

To conclude, we insist on the fact that GBWhatsApp violates WhatsApp's terms and conditions. That does not make it an illegal app. However, it could cause you to lose access to your account if the platform becomes aware that you are using it.

For all these reasons, we recommend you use the official app instead of installing MODs on your device if possible.
