Generally, suspension of a WhatsApp account is usually temporary (as a punishment) and for several periods, which can range from a few hours to a few days. In these cases, you just have to solve the cause of the blocking (stop using an unofficial application, for example) and wait for the time limit so that your number is no longer blocked and you can access chats again .
However, if you repeat or WhatsApp considers that the reasons for the blockade are serious, the account is suspended and the message “Your phone number is suspended in WhatsApp“. In this case, no need to wait, you will have to contact WhatsApp to try to recover your account.
