WhatsApp is a popular messaging application around the world used by over a billion users. Its end-to-end encryption by Signal Protocol provides a completely private & secure base to them to communicate with their loved ones without any threats of reading the conversation by someone else. Nobody except the sender & recipient can read the messages. However, people are more attracted to the WhatsApp MODs.
What are WhatsApp Mods?
WhatsApp Mods are the modified version of the official WhatsApp. Third-party developers use the official WhatsApp framework, modify it, add additional functionalities & release it as an upgraded WhatsApp with new features under different names such as GBWhatsApp, FMWhatsApp, WhatsApp Plus, etc. These days there are more than 20 modified versions of WA. But only a few of them are better & regularly updated than the others.

Features of WhatsApp Mods
WhatsApp Mods are packed with so many amazing features that you will not find in the official app. And that’s the reason why Mods are popular among users. You will find some common features in all the Mods and some features unique to certain Mods. In this section, we will explain these features to you. So, stay with us.
Freeze Last Seen
Using this feature will stop showing you online to others. Instead, it will always show the “last seen at X time”. X-time will be the time when you enable this feature. You can use the app & stay online without letting others know about it. It’s what you call hiding your online presence.
In these Mods, you can download the statuses uploaded by your friends. When you open any status, you will see a download button at the bottom right corner. Tap it and that status will be saved in your local storage.
Whenever someone deletes any message for everyone from the personal chat or group chats, that message will not be deleted from your chats. You can see & read them. The same goes for statuses. You can see the statuses for 24 hours even if they are removed.
Disable Image Share Limit
With this feature, you can select more than 30 images at once while sharing. Official WhatsApp allows only 30 image selections at a time. It removes that limit.
Remove Forwarded Tag
When you forward multiple messages or files from one chat to another, a forwarded tag is added automatically to those messages. It lets others know that you forward the message from others’ chats. You can disable that forwarded tag on these messages in these MODs.
There are two types of online toast features – contact online toast and ringtone online toast. Whenever someone comes online, the first one will show the contact name on the screen no matter which app you are using while the second one will play the ringtone to notify you.
Hide Second & Blue Ticks
Ticks on the messages play an important role in the chats. They let the sender know that the messages are sent, delivered & seen. You can hide the second & blue ticks in these Mods so that others won’t know if you read their messages or not.
DND (Do Not Disturb) or Airplane mode cuts the internet connection to your WA. While it’s activated, you can’t send or receive any messages to/from others. You will be offline. It’s a great feature to use the mobile with internet on and no WA interruptions. Others will think that you are offline.
In the official WA, you can only archive chats to remove them from the chat list and anyone can access them easily. But you can hide them in these Mods. And it also requires a password to access the hidden chats. Anyone unaware of WhatsApp Mods will not know about it.
Themes & Interface
You will find themes in all WhatsApp Mods. But all Mods include different themes. YoWhatsApp & FMWhatsApp has 4000+ themes. GBWhatsApp has live wallpaper themes. WhatsApp Aero & Plus comes with a different collection of themes. Each of the Mods has a unique interface that is user-friendly as well as completely customizable.
This feature is only available in a few Mods such as GBWhatsApp, FMWhatsApp & WhatsApp Plus. Using this feature, you can write a message for certain messages and set the time for auto-reply. Whenever someone sends a similar message, it will automatically reply to them with the message you wrote before for auto-reply. You can set as many auto-reply messages as you want. You can also select the contacts for auto-reply.
Message Bomb feature is only available in WhatsApp Aero. Using this feature, you can send a message as many times as you want with a single tap. Just write the message & set the number of times you want to send it and tap the bomb icon.
Are WhatsApp Mods Safe to Use?
WhatsApp is completely safe to use if we talk about privacy. But Mods don’t use Signal Protocol for end-to-end encryption. So, there are chances that a third person might read your messages. Also, using Mods is against the official WA policies and they may ban your account permanently for using them. There are no cases of broken privacy or chats leaking yet. And using these Mods normally will not ban you. If you forward messages to too many people at once, there are chances of getting a ban. So, use it at your own risk.
WhatsApp Mods are the unofficial WhatsApp version modified by third-party developers to provide many features & functionalities such as freeze last seen, hide second/blue ticks, message scheduler, huge collection of themes, etc. You can install them alongside the official WhatsApp & each other and thus, you can use multiple WA accounts. However, there can be some risks using these Mods as they are not official. To know more about them, you can visit & read other blogs written on each MOD on our site.
