As one of the leading messenger apps in the world, WhatsApp put the utmost importance on security. That’s why the latest version of this messenger comes with end-to-end encryption to prevent eavesdropping. The service also requires users to verify their accounts with phone numbers.

But for whatever reason, some people don’t feel at ease in giving away their number and would like to be able to use WhatsApp without the number verification. Is it possible? How do you do that?

The Preparations

Before you start, there are some things to prepare. The first one is that you need to start with a brand new account and installed the app. So start by deleting or uninstalling your current WhatsApp account. Then continue by updating or reinstalling your WhatsApp to the latest version.

When you start the app, you will have to get through the terms and conditions. Right after you tap the Agree and Continue button, you will need to verify your account.

But do not use your phone number to verify. Instead, use the following tricks to continue.

There are several ways that you can use to activate WhatsApp without using a mobile number. Let’s discuss them one at a time.

Method 1 - Use Textnow App

In this method, you need the help from an app called Textnow. This service will give users free online text and calls for free using the Textnow number, and it’s available for iOS and Android.

Downloading Textnow app

After installing the app on your phone, you will get a Textnow number. Use this number to verify your WhatsApp account. This verification process will fail.

Then WhatsApp will ask you to do verification via Call. Choose the Call Me verification method and you will get a call at your Textnow number. Accept the call and take notes on the provided verification code. Use the code to activate your WhatsApp account.

Method 2: Use Primo

The second alternative is to use the help from an app called Primo. Similar to Textnow, you are going to use the phone number that you get from Primo to It’s available for Android, iOS, Windows, and Mac.

After downloading and installing the app on your phone, open it and sign up for an account. Select a username and password and that’s it. The app doesn’t ask for a mobile number or email address.
