According to BGR, the MOD of WhatsApp communicates with third-party servers. These MODs can install adware and malware in your device, which is potentially harmful to your device.
As said above that the MOD apps are not official; so they cannot be updated using Google Play. Users will need to use third-party sites for downloading the updated versions and install them manually. Also, these updates may contain harmful ads and malware. Even if new versions are officially made available, they will not be available on Google Play.
The official page of WhatsApp claims that this is not their official versions and so they can prevent users from using the service. That means if you are using the MOD versions, you might be banned at any time. After being banned, you will have to uninstall the app immediately; otherwise, your original WhatsApp account can be terminated.
Official WhatsApp is totally free and they may not show advertisements in the future. But unofficial MOD apps have no guarantee of whether they will be add-free. For generating traffic and revenue developers may include ads in the unofficial apps.
