Welcome


WhatsApp allows you to Chat, share Pictures, Videos and make free Voice Calls to your family, friends and Contacts located in any part of the world. You will find below the steps to Setup and Use WhatsApp on your Android Phone.

Unlike other online services, you cannot create a WhatsApp account using your Email Address as WhatsApp Messenger verifies its users via phone numbers. Hence, make sure that you do have an active phone number that you can make use of to create your WhatsApp Account.

In general most people make use of their Mobile Phone Number to create a WhatsApp account. However, you can also create a WhatsApp account without a mobile phone number or an active SIM card by using a workaround provided in this article: How to Use WhatsApp Without Phone Number or SIM card.
