For some reason, I will change my WhatsApp (WA) number, the process won’t take too long, about 2 minutes (depending on receiving a confirmation SMS). Here’s how.
- Make sure the new number is active and can receive SMS, open the WA application then press the three vertical dots in the upper right corner and select Settings – Account.
- Select Change number – NEXT.
- Fill in the old number and the new number, then NEXT.
- Next, there will be information whether you will notify all contacts about the new number, adjust it to your needs and select DONE.
- WA will send a confirmation SMS to the new number, usually it will be filled automatically, but if not, it can be filled in manually from the SMS notification that enters the Pesan/Message application.
Done, quite easy isn’t it !
