The Change Number feature via the settings on WhatsApp allows you to change your phone number linked to your WhatsApp account. WhatsApp also informs all your contacts what your new Simvacy number is so you don’t have to go through any hassle of messaging your contacts individually. Additionally, if you don’t want to share your new Simvacy number with everyone, you can create a customized list of your preferred contacts.
Conveniently, using the Change Number feature in WhatsApp will migrate your profile information, groups, and settings from your old phone number to your Simvacy number. For privacy, it will also delete the account linked with your personal number, meaning your contacts can no longer see your previous personal number in their WhatsApp contact list.
Finally, and what makes it so pain-free to use Simvacy; when you change your number and continue using the same phone with your Simvacy number, your chat history will continue to be available on your phone.
Remember to back-up your chat history before changing your number to Simvacy to ensure all the above goes smoothly!
