How to Find Your WhatsApp Number and Name

Let’s see the steps to find your WhatsApp number and name on an Android phone, iPhone, and PC.

Note: WhatsApp doesn’t assign or let you give yourself a username. You create a WhatsApp account using your number, which is your identity.

How to Find WhatsApp Number and Name on Android and iPhone

Open the WhatsApp Messenger app.

If you’re on an Android phone, tap the three vertical dots at the top right corner and select Settings.

On iPhone, hit the Settings tab at the bottom.

At the top, you can see the name, which is visible to your WhatsApp contacts.

Note that if someone has your contact with a name different from your WhatsApp account, they will see the name in the contact.

If you want to find the number, hit the name, and you can see these:

“Name” shows the customizable name.

Phone (on Android) or Phone Number (on iPhone) shows the number you’ve used for your WhatsApp account. Note that changing the phone number is also possible.

About shows your current about. If you like to change that, check out our guide.

You can also add or change your profile picture here.

That’s it.

  • Adding or changing your profile photo is possible from here.

That’s it.
