Deactivating my account for no reason

lust got a new phone and a new US phone number I downloaded WhatsApp on my new phone. All my contacts were still there but my chat histories were gone. I used WhatsApp how I would normally use it.
There were no chats on the main screen of my WhatsApp, I clicked on the contact of one of my friend's to chat with and it created a completely new chat (therefore there was now one chat on my mainscreen). Normally whenever someone changes their phone number, it just notifies the other person that the person has changed their phone number. But in my case, it just created a whole new chat with the person. After I texted with 3 people with my new phone (only 3 chats were on my WhatsApp mainscreen), I got a "banned for spamming" message on my screen. After around 10 hours, they said I could reactivate my account. I put in my phone number and just as I was writing my display name, I received another ban. Now I just got my account back a second time so hopefully the same error doesn't happen! I'm really upset by this and I hope WhatsApp manages to fix it.

WhatsApp Review

WhatsApp is an exceptional messaging app that has revolutionized the way we communicate. With its user-friendly interface and seamless integration across devices, it allows for effortless messaging, voice, and video calls. The end-to-end encryption ensures a high level of privacy and security, which is crucial in today’s digital age. Additionally, WhatsApp supports a range of multimedia, including photos, videos, documents, and voice messages, making it versatile for both personal and professional use. Group chat features and broadcast lists enhance its functionality, enabling efficient communication with multiple contacts simultaneously. The addition of status updates and disappearing messages adds a dynamic, ephemeral aspect to the app. While some users may find the constant stream of messages overwhelming, the customizable notification settings offer a solution. Overall, WhatsApp’s robust features and reliability make it a top choice for global communication.

Requested access to photos

I had a pop up from WhatsApp requesting access to all photos. I can't even remember the last time I used the app (it has been over a year) and at the time the pop up was displayed I was browsing in Safari. Since I didn't expect the pop up I mindlessly clicked Allow and then immediately went into settings to revoke all photos access. WhatsApp should not be requesting access to all photos out of the blue.

I'm giving 4 stars because the app worked fine as far as I remember. I wanted to report the issue to WhatsApp but have not found a way to do that so am attempting to let somebody know by writing a review. I'll probably delete the app now though to avoid future occurrences. It makes me suspicious of what it could possibly be doing in the background without my knowledge because I didn't do anything that should result in WhatsApp wanting access to my photos.
