WhatsApp is now the messaging application having a giant number if users and why not? WhatsApp is rolling out more and more unique features for their users. In case if you don’t know WhatsApp has now the ability to send and receive the payments. So now users can send or receive the payments on WhatsApp. What else user want? No need to download any other third-party application. In the upcoming days WhatsApp bringing more exciting features. Don’t worry we will always keep you updated with that!

So, I am here with the one trick and with that, you will be able to hide your original number on the WhatsApp. That’s pretty much like real account but with a fake number. Well, I wouldn’t say it fake haha. Because it will be the original number on which you can get SMS and Calls. Okay so without being said let me jump on the steps, you have to follow them.

01. Chat Backup!

Don’t worry, you will not lose anything. I know after listening ‘Backup’ word majority of people think they will lose everything. We don’t have to do anything like clear data or something. Just in case accidentally if you lose your chats then it can help to get them back on your device. So simply take a backup.

02. Download and Install an App

Have you taken a backup? Well, it completely depends on you. Welcome to the second step. You need to download one application on your Android device called — TextNow.

You will find the download link below so you don’t have to do the effort to find it. I am using this application for a couple of months and I am not facing any problems.

The reason why I am telling you to download this application that’s because it asks to sign in with your email id and password which will help you to retrieve your number back just in case if you forget it or you change your device.

03. Complete Setup Process

Now to get the free phone number to make an account in WhatsApp you have to complete the process.

First tap on ‘Get a free phone number’. Then tap on the ‘Sign Up’ button. Enter your ‘Email Id’ and choose ‘Password’. If you have a Facebook account you can also sign up using Facebook.

04. Choose Phone Number

Once you are in, it’s time to choose the phone number from the given options. Choose any one from that like me. In my case, I am selecting first. Then tap on the ‘Continue’ button. Now you have the phone number. To see the phone number just tap on the ‘Three Lines’ on the left side upper corner. You can see my phone number is there.

05. Change Number in WhatsApp

Now you need to change your number in WhatsApp or you can also make another account with this number. But to keep your identity same on WhatsApp you need to change number only. For that Go to Settings> Account> Change Number> Tap on Next> Enter New Number.

WhatsApp will try to send the verification code to that number. This is advice for you that if you don’t receive code go for the call. In my case, I have verified my account with the code which was received by the call.

06. That’s it!

Fantastic! You have successfully created an account on WhatsApp. So now you can hide your real number from everyone.
