How to change your number in WhatsApp while keeping your conversations

What are the requirements for using WhatsApp? Be at least thirteen years old and have a working SIM card, at least to start with. Since you have to enter a confirmation code to register, which you will receive via SMS or telephone call, this has no effect on the permanent blocking of your contract by the contract operator Linie.

Remember that the above instant messaging application only works with internet access. What would happen if you want to change your number? Would you lose all your information? No, in fact it is possible to keep your account with a new line and all conversations including messages, audio and multimedia files. Just follow the steps that Depor explains below.

This is how you can change your number without losing your WhatsApp conversations

  • First of all, we recommend you to create a backup on WhatsApp.
  • Now open the application and click on the three dots icon in the top right corner (in Android) or on the cog wheel in the bottom right (in iOS).
  • Tap “Settings” or “Settings” and access the “Account” section.
  • In the next step, click on the “Change number” option. The app will notify you that you are migrating your conversations, groups, settings, and account information.
  • Make sure you can receive text messages or calls on the new number. Click Next > enter both numbers in the appropriate fields.
  • Click Next > turn on the Notify my contacts switch (you’ll send everyone a message about your new number). Remember that only groups will be notified of your new number.
  • Click “Ok” and the message “Your phone number has been successfully changed from +51 999 999 999 to +51 999 888 888” will appear.

Done, that’s it. It is important to clarify that if you have not decided to notify your WhatsApp contacts, when you enter your old conversation, the following message will appear: “+51 (your old number) has changed their phone number.” “Press to send a message or add the new number”. However, if they were previously added, this information will be omitted.
