GB WhatsApp: How to download

WhatsApp warns against the use
Using a third-party app like GB WhatsApp can get your original WhatsApp account banned permanently. Additionally, these apps can also compromise your privacy as there are no well-known sources for downloading the app.
According to WhatsApp FAQs, "Unsupported apps, such as WhatsApp Plus, GB WhatsApp, or apps that claim to move your WhatsApp chats between phones, are altered versions of WhatsApp. These unofficial apps are developed by third parties and violate our Terms of Service. WhatsApp doesn't support these third-party apps because we can't validate their security practices."
