Use WhatsApp Without Any Phone Number

Yes, you heard it correct. You can use WhatsApp without any phone number both on your smart phone and tablet with the workarounds I am providing below:

Method #1 – Use Spare Number

One simple method is to use your alternative or landline to receive text verification, enter it to verify your WhatsApp. Now, you don’t need that SIM card or phone number anymore for WhatsApp purposes.

Method #2 – Use Anonymous Phone Number

There are a lot of websites online which provide free phone numbers for account verification purpose. For example, https://smsreceivefree.com. Such sites are used by thousands of people to verify phone number for different accounts verification. If you are lucky, you’ll be able to find a number for which no one has verified WhatsApp account and you can use it for your own benefit.

Method #3 – By Spoofing Messages

  • Download WhatsApp (.apk) file from Google Play using APK downloader and Install a good spoof messages app (for ex, Spoof My Text) in your smart phone.
  • Now, turn your FLIGHT MODE ON and start installing WhatsApp. It will stop at verification because of no active internet connection and prompt to choose alternate SMS verification.
  • Now choose check through SMS and enter you email address. As the verification process starts, stop it by clicking on Cancel and instantly enter these details to your message spoofing app:

Hide WhatsApp Media From Gallery

Unlike other multimedia files, WhatsApp Photos and Videos can be private. So, having them available to view at Gallery is not a good idea for everyone. If you are someone who wants to automatically hide WhatsApp photos & videos from Gallery then:

  • For iPhone users – Disable WhatsApp access to Photos app by navigating to Settings >> Privacy >> Photos and switch off WhatsApp access.
  • For Android users – Add a period/dot (.) before WhatsApp Images and WhatsApp Videos folder names available inside your Phone’s internal and external storage by navigating through a File Manager app. So, rename WhatsApp Images folder name with .WhatsApp Images and WhatsApp Videos folder name with .WhatsApp Videos and no content from these folder will be visible on your phone’s gallery.

Android – Alternatively, you can also create a .nomedia empty file inside any folder to block a folder’s multimedia from appearing in Gallery.

WhatsApp only allows to set square pics as WhatsApp profile pic.
