WhatsApp is a popular messaging app and is used by millions of users to communicate with friends and family members. Many times you have to contact an unknown person on WhatsApp for some work. Therefore, for this, you usually have to save the phone number to deliver a message on WhatsApp.
This can be difficult if you need to access any service on WhatsApp for a short period of time and you cannot do so without saving the phone number. Apart from this, saving the number of an unknown person also means that that person will also be able to see your status and profile picture. Some privacy-conscious users may not be comfortable with this.

There is no direct way to do this and you have to go through a few steps. Keep reading to know more about it.
