This guide contains steps on how to make use of WhatsApp without Sim Card. WhatsApp is a popular social messaging platform which almost, if not all Android users have installed on their various devices. WhatsApp, as we all know, requires a phone number in order to be able to sign up or log in to the app. In the process of signing up or logging in to the app, a code gets sent or a call gets put through to the phone number you provided to verify ownership of the account – if you truly own the number then you should be able to see the code come in on your phone.
You’re now required to input said code into the WhatsApp application to gain access to your account. While this is good for security, it also means that once you do not have a phone number then you won’t be able to have a WhatsApp account. However, there is a way to get around that which we will be showing in this tutorial.
