How to Create WhatsApp Group With Yourself

In this post, you’ll see the steps to create a WhatsApp group with yourself as the only member.

Here’s an important thing to note: Since you’re creating a group, you’re a member of the group you create.

But for a WhatsApp group, you need two members. In other words, you need to choose one of your WhatsApp contact as the member of the group whom you need to remove from the group later.

I suggest you inform the contact about this before following the steps in the guide.

Let’s see how to do this on Android and iPhone. On WhatsApp Web and Desktop app, you can’t do this task.

I use Google Pixel 4a (Android 12), and iPhone X. Let’s start.

Create a Group on WhatsApp with Only You as Member (iPhone)

Here are the steps:

Open the WhatsApp app and hit the icon at the top right.

Select New Group and choose the contact you prefer.

Hit Next at the top right and provide the group subject now.

Providing the group icon is optional; configure the “Disappearing Messages” if you wish.

Hit the Create option at the top right.

That’s it.

Let’s see the steps to remove the group member:

Open the group you created and hit its name at the top.

Find the group member name you want to remove and hit it.

In the popup, beneath the Make Group Admin, you can see Remove from Group. Hit it.

In the confirmation popup, hit Remove.

That’s it. Now the group has only one member, and that’s you.

Create a WhatsApp Group With Yourself (Android)

If you’re using Android, follow these steps:

Open the WhatsApp Messenger app.

Hit the three vertical dots at the top right or the green icon at the bottom right of the Chats tab.

I use the latter way here. You can see the New group option now above “New contact.”

Hit it, and you can see the list of your WhatsApp contacts.

Choose the one you prefer and hit the Arrow icon you see at the bottom right.

You now need to provide the group name, and the icon for the group is optional. If you wish, you can configure the disappearing messages setting.

Hit the Tick icon, and that’s all.

To remove the group participant, you need to open the group chat and tap the group name at the top.

Please find the contact you want to remove and hit it.

You can see the Remove (contact name) option now. Select it.

Hit OK in the popup.

That’s it. Now the group has only one member, and that’s you.

That’s all.
