Trouble sending messages

Are you having trouble sending private messages or posting messages on other people's profiles? This is because we have restrictions in place when sending unsolicited messages too frequently. These measures are taken to prevent spam accounts from spreading their phishing messages on Wattpad. Our priority is to support our community by ensuring that all users are happy and secure. 

If you are seeing a '1131' error message, or an error message dealing with 'unsolicited messages', you have hit the above limit. Also, if you are an iOS user, you may notice that your messages will turn grey and not send. This also means you have hit the restrictions described above.

There is no way around this limit, and we suggest you try to send your message again at a later time.

Thank you for your patience and understanding,

The Wattpad Support Team
