WhatsApp is the most used messaging app around the world and there are plenty of features that needs an applaud. While the official way to send a message to anyone on WhatsApp requires you to save their contact number first and then send the message. But there are instances when you are willing to send a single message on WhatsApp to someone but don’t want to save his/her number.

At first, I thought it isn’t possible until I tried a few ways to do it. So if you’re too looking forward to sending a WhatsApp message to anyone without saving their number, keep reading to know how to do it.

2 Easy Ways to Send a WhatsApp Message Without Saving a Number

There are multiple methods through which you can send a WhatsApp message to an unknown number or without saving it on your Android phone or iPhone. So let’s see those methods so that you can implement the same when needed the most.

#1. Reply Privately to Individuals in WhatsApp Group

You may be a part of many WhatsApp groups but it isn’t mandatory for you to save their numbers. But if you ever wanted to message someone without saving their number, sending it from a WhatsApp group is very simple.

  • Hold on to the message sent by the person you are willing to text and tap on Click More.
  • Once done, select Reply Privately.

Reply Privately Without Saving WhatsApp Number

  • Now, type the required message (you will see the person’s number instead of the name as you didn’t save it).

This method works only if a person has sent a message in the group. But what if that particular person hasn’t sent a message in the group. Can you still message without saving their number? Yes, that’s possible, just follow the below given steps on your iPhone.

  • Open the WhatsApp group, tap on Group info, and head over to the number you want to message.
  • Tap on that number and click on Info and you will see a message icon on the top. Tap on it and send the message directly without saving their number on your iPhone.


Well, that’s it! You can easily send a message to any person in the group without saving their numbers. This is the best way to do it and it works for both Android and iPhone users.

#2. Use URL to Send a Message on WhatsApp

If the person you’re willing to message isn’t in any of your WhatsApp groups, then this is the best way to message them without saving the number on your Android smartphone or iPhone.

You can use this URL:

Replace the word NUMBER with the required mobile number. Make sure you add the country code before the mobile number or you’ll end up messaging someone else in your country if that number exists.

For example, if the number you want to message is 3049492923 and the country code is +91, all you need to do is enter this URL: in any of your mobile’s browser and click on Open when it asks “Open this page in WhatsApp?”


This is how it looks when you message someone on WhatsApp using the above given URL format. Of course, all this is done without saving the WhatsApp number of the person you’re going to message.

While these are the 2 easiest ways to message anyone on WhatsApp without saving their number, there’s another way too if you have an iPhone.

Follow these steps. Head over to Settings > Privacy >Contacts > WhatsApp >Disable contact access by toggling it to OFF. Once done, open WhatsApp and click on the New Chat Button. Now, enter the mobile number of a particular persona manually and tap on Done to send a message without saving their number.

While this might seem a bit technical and lengthy, it works like a charm if you don’t want your WhatsApp to access your iPhone contacts. This adds privacy as well as your contacts aren’t shared with WhatsApp.

Final Verdict!

Sending a message to anyone on WhatsApp without saving their number shouldn’t be an issue now after following the above 2 easy ways. But if you still have any issues sending messages without saving a number on WhatsApp, do let me in the comments below and I will get back to you at the earliest with the best possible solution!
