How to use WhatsApp without number

Preliminary information

Prima di enter the live tutorial, walking to spiegare how to use WhatsApp without number, there is some preliminary information that it is my duty to provide you to allow you to have perfectly clear ideas on what to do.

Let's start from a fundamental premise: WhatsApp cannot be used without providing and making known to other contacts your own phone number. In fact, to register and verify a WhatsApp account, it is essential to indicate the telephone number, which becomes essential for communicating with other users who in turn use the service.

In fact, each WhatsApp user is identified by their mobile number. Furthermore, each account can be on only one device at a time (with the exception of WhatsApp Web and computer sessions, which act as a sort of "repeater" of the application installed on the smartphone).

Based on what has been said, it is therefore not possible to use WhatsApp without a telephone number in the strict sense of the term. However, what can be done is to resort to the use of a alternative address, in order to conceal the one usually used to make phone calls, send SMS, etc. To do this, just use a Alternative SIM or dei temporary phone numbers made available by special online services.

How to use WhatsApp without a phone number

At this point, I would say that we can finally take action and then go and find out how to do, specifically, for use WhatsApp without a phone number. As anticipated, you can do this by using one Alternative SIM or a temporary number. Find all the details below.

Use an alternative SIM

The first solution that you can consider to consider to use WhatsApp without a number is to use one Alternative SIM, to be used exclusively for the famous messaging service, so as to make known to your contacts only the number associated with the card in question and not the real telephone number.

You can do this by using one SIM already active that you no longer use or that you do not use frequently or you can buy a new one to be allocated exclusively to the thing. In the second case, you just need to decide which telephone provider to contact, go to one of its stores or request that the card be sent to your home and proceed with the activation, as I explained to you in detail in my guides dedicated to TIM, Vodafone, WINDTRE, Iliad, Fastweb, ho., Kena and PosteMobile.

As for the purchase of the SIM, as this is intended for the use of WhatsApp only, I suggest you opt for an economic tariff plan, such as those offered by most virtual operators, with a good number of GB for traffic. Internet and a smaller amount of minutes and text messages to call and text. If you want some advice on this, you can read my article on the best mobile rates.

In this regard, you can also decide to buy one SIM per WhatsApp, that is one of those cards that are made to use the most famous instant messaging services (and therefore not only WhatsApp) at relatively low costs and which generally have no limitations regarding roaming.

Among the most famous solutions in the category is ChatSim: it costs 15 euros, to which you must add 5 euros one-off for the shipment of the card and at least 10 euros / year of recharge necessary to obtain the credits necessary to use the service, for a total of at least 30 €. Note that if the SIM is not recharged for a period equal to or greater than 12 months, it is automatically deactivated. In addition, there are traffic thresholds that must not be exceeded.

Use a temporary number

If you want to use WhatsApp without a telephone number, you can also try using a temporary number through which to receive the activation code of the popular instant messaging platform. If you do not know, there are in fact online services that allow you to have "disposable" telephone numbers to be used when activating services such as WhatsApp (if we want to make a comparison, they work more or less like those that allow you to create temporary emails).

Before explaining how to best use these services, it is my duty to inform you that the numbers they provide are few and, therefore, many of them have already been used for other WhatsApp activations: this means that it is very difficult to find them. one actually working.

If, despite this, you want to try one, all you have to do is search on Google (or any other search engine), terms like "Fake phone number for verification" and, on the page that opens, find the service that seems to you best suited to your needs, such as those I reported to you in my post on how to receive SMS online.

After identifying one of the services that allow you to obtain a temporary telephone number, all you have to do is start WhatsApp on your smartphone (if necessary, download it in advance) and start the configuration procedure, then go to the page of the service from which you have took the numbering and wait for the receipt of the code to verify and activate the account, as I explained to you in my guide on how to activate WhatsApp.

If you can't find a "free" number at the first try, you can try to identify others: maybe choose (if possible) a number that has received a few SMS and check that among the messages received there is none containing an activation code of WhatsApp.

Still on the subject, know that there are also several apps and services that allow the creation of phone numbers, but you cannot use them because the numbers they provide are not accepted by WhatsApp to validate the account.

Caution: the sites through which you can use a temporary phone number do not require you to enter your personal data to register. So, be wary of portals that ask you to enter your personal data or even those that require money. Most likely, in fact, these are gimmicks to perpetrate identity theft or real scams. Understood?

Alternative solutions to using WhatsApp without a phone number

If your need to use WhatsApp without a number was motivated by wanting to avoid being bothered by specific contacts, you can consider using the specific functions of the famous messaging service that allow you to hide the last access, the read receipts and the status, which I told you about in detail in my guides on the subject, so as to limit as much as possible the information made available to others for know if and when you use the app.

Also in order to avoid being disturbed, it may be useful to use the contact blocking function offered by WhatsApp, which allows you to stop practically any communication via the app with the users concerned, avoiding receiving and sending messages, calls and file and concealing details related to account activity.

You can also consider contacting adifferent messaging app by WhatsApp and which does not necessarily require the use of the telephone number to work or which in any case does not necessarily have to be disclosed to others, as in the case of Telegram, Facebook Messenger and Skype.
