WhatsApp Mobile Apps are designed for one to one communication by humans so sending more than 40 messages in a minute to 40 unique contacts is practically not possible to achieve by a human and this sending pattern will detect by WhatsApp inbuilt Machine Learning Algorithms and leads to blockage of your number.

If you wish to send mass messages then we recommend to create more projects and distribute the message load across all the projects. For example, if you would like to send 100 messages in a minute then we recommend to create 4-5 projects and distribute the messages between all the projects.
