Step 3: WhatsApp will then ask your phone number for the verification purpose. But our main intention is to use WhatsApp without a mobile number. Now, you need to switch your phone to ‘FLIGHT’ mode.

Step 4: Now, open the installed WhatsApp messaging app and enter your mobile number. As your device is in flight mode, it’s not a complete verification process which is an alternative way.

Step 5: Now, choose verification through SMS and enter your valid E-mail address.

**Step 6: Click on Submit’ button and immediately tap on ‘Cancel’ option. You have to perform this action within a few seconds. This is the most crucial and important step in this method.

Step 7: Now, it’s time to install spoof or fake message apps for your individual devices to use WhatsApp app without a phone or mobile number. Your authorization process ends in the final step.

Step 8: Now you have to create a spoof message.

  • If you’re an Android user, you can do so using a Spoof Text Message.
  • If you’re an iPhone user, you need to download and install Fake A Message
  • Install any of the above depending on your mobile device operating software.

Step 9: Now, go to Outbox, copy the message details and send it to a fake number.

You can just use the below details to perform this false verification step.

  • To: +447900347295
  • From: + (country code) (mobile number)
  • Message: Your E-mail address

Step 10: Now, a false verification message will be sent to the fake number. That’s it! This way you can complete the verification process without any mobile number.

Method 2: Use Text Now/TextPlus App

The first method which I’ve explained above is a regular way of using WhatsApp without a mobile number which is quite a lengthy process. Now, the second method is you can use mobile apps such as TextNow or textPlus to use WhatsApp without a mobile number. Here is a step-by-step procedure to use WhatsApp without a mobile number using TextNow.

Step 1: Download TextNow/TextPlus

  • Initially, download the TextNow or text plus app on your device either from the Google Play Store, iTunes App Store or the Windows Phone Store.
  • If you’re seeking to use WhatsApp on PC, you need to open your Android emulator (Like, Bluestacks) and search for the TextNow or Text Plus app in it.

Step 2: Open TextNow/TextPlus App

After installing the app, open it and finish the setup process. Note down the number.

If the TextNow app does not show your number or if you forgot to note the number, you could find your TextNow number just by following the below steps:

  • Android: Once you open the app on your Android device, just hit the 3-line icon located on the top-left corner of your Android phone, and there you can see your phone number.
  • iPhone: Hit the 3-line icon located on the top-left corner of your iPhone, iPad or iPod. There you can see your phone number.
  • Windows Phone: Once you open the app, just navigate to the People tab wherein you can see your phone number.

Step 3: Verify Number

  • Once you get the TextNow/TextPlus number, just note it and open WhatsApp on your mobile phone, tablet or PC.
  • Agree all the terms and conditions of WhatsApp and then enter the TextNow/TextPlus number.
  • You need to wait for 5 minutes for the SMS verification to fail. Once the SMS verification fails, you will be prompted to call your number. Just hit on the Call Me button to receive an automated call from WhatsApp.
  • Make a note of the verification number which you received via the WhatsApp call.
  • Enter the verification code in WhatsApp.
  • That’s it! You have now successfully created a WhatsApp account without a Phone number.

Method 3: Using Existing Landline

This method makes use of your existing phone or landline number to verify your WhatsApp account. Simply follow the steps given below to use WhatsApp on your device without a phone number or a SIM card.

Step 1: Open your WhatsApp application on your mobile phone, PC or tablet.

Step 2: When it prompts you to enter your number, just enter your Home Phone number or Landline number.

Step 3: Just wait for 5 minutes so that your SMS verification will fail and you’ll be prompted with an option to Call Me. Just click on it to get a call from WhatsApp to your Landline number.

Step 4: An automated voice call from WhatsApp will tell you a 6-digit verification code. Just not it down and enter the code in the space provided on your WhatsApp verification.

Step 5: Once your WhatsApp account gets verified, finish the setup process.

Step 6: That’s it! You can now start a chat or group conversation on your WhatsApp account without using any phone number or mobile number.

NOTE: Whatsapp activation by landline number may not work properly.

  1. Used Text Now to get US number 818-XXX-XXXX When WhatsApp asked for verification phone number it said that my number was not a valid US number. Any ideas?

    1. Hi Jeff,
      Whatsapp has a way of sometimes (but not always) detecting invalid US numbers, it’s happened to me with textnow several times lately although it used to work quite well. The best way around it for now is to use an app that gives non US number. From Google play you can get Talk2 (Filipines number, it’s free) and there are others.

      1. textnow was not successful for me. it always said invalid number…

        with talk2, i got philipines number, but i did not get any message or call from whatsapp.

  2. Hey!

  3. The TextNow method is not working !

    WhatsApp checks for the validity of the generated phone number, which does not correspond with the country number, so you will always get a “invalid number” error without the prompt to call your number.
