In order to activate and use WhatsApp we have to use our personal number, but what if there was a way to circumvent this measure? It exists and we explain how.
WhatsApp is without a doubt the most used messaging app in the world. One of those essential applications on our phones and all this despite the fact that we like other tools such as Telegram much more.
And it is that Telegram has many advantages over the Facebook app –WhatsApp–. One of the main ones is that to speak with other users we don’t need to know their phone number but only their username, something that cannot be done with WhatsApp. Now, there are “tricks” to to be able to use a WhatsApp account without having to give our personal mobile number. How? Let’s find out.
How to create a WhatsApp account without using our phone number
WhatsApp forces all its users to give a phone number to register. What does this mean? That if we are very jealous of our privacy, we will have to give our number yes or yes if we want to use WhatsApp. But how can we circumvent this security measure from the good of Zuckerberg? Well, very simple, thanks to a virtual phone number
A virtual number is still a normal phone number, although it is not physically associated with a physical cable or a sim card, but simply uses the internet to contact other phone numbers. Something that comes in handy for small businesses or startups or if we just want to have an additional number in addition to the staff.
In this way we can use this type of numbers to activate a WhatsApp account and therefore not have to give our personal number, especially if we are going to talk to people who are not in our circle of acquaintances or trusted and we don’t want them to know our personal number.
Services that offer virtual numbers exist many and practically all work identically. Line2, Sideline or Hushed are some of the best options so it is best to try them on our Android smartphone and choose the one that best suits our needs.
