Today in this article, we’ll show you how you can send a message on WhatsApp without saving the number of that random person or contact. We have listed three methods that are easy and convenient.

How to send WhatsApp message without saving the contact number

The easiest method of sending a WhatsApp message to contact without saving their number is by a link.

What’s great is that this works on Android as well as iOS devices. It is also secure, considering that you don’t have to download anything on your device.

Follow the steps below to send a WhatsApp message without saving the contact number.

1. On your smartphone, open this link: https://wa.me/.

2. Next up, after the slash, add the contact number you want to send a WhatsApp message to along with the country code.

Go to the given link

For example – https://wa.me/9198709XXXXX. Here ’91’ is India’s country code, and it is followed by the 10 digit contact number.

3. Once you do this, hit enter.

4. Now, the page will ask you to “GO TO CHAT,” which once clicked will take you to the WhatsApp app.

Tap on Go to chat

Voila, now you have a chat open, and you can easily message that contact.

Wasn’t that simple? Well, there are also other methods that are similar to this.
