How to enter your number on WhatsApp on Android
Before explaining to you how to enter your number on WhatsApp on Android, I advise you to check that you have not already saved your mobile number in the address book (if so, in fact, there is no need to do anything else). If you haven't actually saved it yet, feel free to follow the instructions below.
First, open the app Address book o Contacts, pressing the icon of phonebook placed on the Home screen or in the drawer of the device (the screen that contains the icons of all the apps installed), tap the button capacitor positive (+) lead which should be at the bottom right and, in the opened screen, fill in the form you see on the screen, specifying your data in the appropriate text fields (Your name, Last name e Telephone). Finally, click on the item Save located at the top right and that's it.
Now, start the WhatsApp app, tap on the tab Chat located at the top left, presses the symbol of white speech bubble on green background located at the bottom right and press the button (⋮) located at the top right. Finally, tap on the item Update in the opened menu.
There is also an alternative procedure that allows you to save your mobile number directly in WhatsApp. To use it, after starting the famous instant messaging app, tap on the tab Chat, premi sull'icona della white speech bubble on green background and presses the button New contact placed at the top.
In conclusion, save your number in the address book by specifying yours name, last name e telephone number in the appropriate text fields and tap on the item Save located in the upper right corner. Then update the list of WhatsApp contacts following the instructions I gave you earlier.
If you do not see your number on WhatsApp (even after updating the contact list), check that you have granted the app permission to "read" the address book: go to the menu Settings> Applications> WhatsApp> Permissions and, if necessary, move up ON the switch located in correspondence with the item Contacts.
Now, to save one or more messages in the chat with yourself, do this: locate the conversation containing the message or messages of your interest, keep your finger pressed on one of those to be forwarded to yourself and, after selecting them, tap on freccia rivolta verse destra (top right). In the screen that opened, then tap on your contact and presses the icon ofpaper airplane (bottom right), in order to send them.

Messages added to favorites are grouped in the section Important messages of WhatsApp, reachable by pressing on the tab Chat, by tapping the button (⋮) and selecting the voice Important messages from the opened menu. Convenient, don't you think? More info here.

How to enter your number on WhatsApp on PC
You wish to proceed from PC? I'm sorry, but at the moment of writing it is not possible to save your number on WhatsApp neither using WhatsApp Web nor using the official WhatsApp client for PC.
Since WhatsApp synchronizes its address book with that of the smartphone, in fact, it is necessary to proceed from the latter. What you can do from your PC is forward the messages to your number (after adding it to WhatsApp using the instructions I gave you earlier) or use the function that allows you to mark them as favorites.
In the first case, what you need to do is open the conversation of your interest, locate the message you want to forward to yourself, hover the mouse cursor over it and click on the button (⌵) placed in its correspondence. In the menu that opened, then click on the item Forward message and possibly select other messages in the open chat. When you are ready to do so, click on the icon of the freccia rivolta verse destra (in basso a destra) and selects the voice Tu in the box that appeared on the screen, so as to send the selected messages to your number.
To take advantage of the feature that allows you to save messages in your favorites, however, you must go to the chat of your interest, locate the message you want to bookmark, hover the mouse cursor over it and click the button (⌵) appeared in correspondence with the latter. In the menu that opens, then click on the item Important message And that's it.
