So, we can ensure that people who contact us are people we know. And of course, we can avoid fraud attempts by irresponsible parties.
Here are some ways to track WA numbers that you need to know:
Through the WhatsApp Application
Application WhatsApp allows us to know who the person is contacting us. This is very suitable for checking new numbers that send us messages or call.
The way to find out the identity of the person behind the new number that calls us is also relatively easy. Here are the steps:
- Copy the contact number of the person who called (via SMS or WhatsApp) on your cellphone
- Enter the contact menu and paste the number in the number field
- Fill in the name column in the contact menu with the name you want (free)
- After that press save
- Enter the WhatsApp application
- Look for the contact name according to what you saved before
If you have taken these steps, you only need to view the contact by pressing the image.
Later, you can see the profile photo and username of the person who contacted you.
If you are still not sure that the contact is someone you know, you can make a voice call or video call.
Video calls will make it easier for you to ensure that you know the person who is calling you.
If you don't know and feel annoyed that you have been contacted repeatedly in the mode of being a relative and so on, then you can ignore them or use the contact block feature in the WhatsApp application.
To use this method, you must be able to ensure that the new number that calls you also uses the WhatsApp application.
