The fact is WhatsApp works using phone numbers, unlike Facebook, where you can search for people using their name and their user name.
With WhatsApp, you can only chat with people that you have their numbers.
So, how can you find someone on WhatsApp without their contacts?
There is a way to find people on Whatsapp without phone numbers and then start chatting with them.
These simple steps will help you make new friends if you find yourself bored and looking for people to chat with them.
Especially when you want to find someone on WhatsApp from another country.
With these steps, we will do it with the help of Google, so without wasting much time, let’s dive right in.
Steps To Find Someone On WhatsApp Without A Phone Number And Become Friends
Choose The Country You Want To Make New Friends From
So you are bored, or you would want to make new friends and then start chatting with them, the first thing you should do is think of the country to make new friends.
So in this article, we will search for a WhatsApp contact from Germany without knowing their number.
Find The Country Code For The Telco Operators In That Country
The next thing to do is search for the phone code in that country, so on Google, we will search for ‘Phone code in Germany.’
Google will then pull the country code for us, so for this search, the country code for Germany is +49.
From there, you will need to find the codes of the mobile operators. In Germany, in every country, there are mobile operators, and each of them has their codes.
So on Google, search for ‘Code of mobile operators in Germany,’ and you will find all the codes for the telcos in Germany.
We can see all the codes for the telcos, but in this tutorial, we will choose one from Vodafone, and we chose 01520, and when we add the country codes and the telco code, it will be +4901511(the remaining digits).
The next step is to find the sum of mobile numbers in Germany, so we Google ‘How many digits does Germany have’
Now we know they are 11 digits, leading us to the next step.
Manually Generate The Phone Numbers
After the search, we have found out that the German code is +49 and the mobile operator’s codes are plenty, but we from Vodafone, we saw 01520, 01522, 01523, 01525, 01526, 0162, 0172, 0173, 0174, 01529, and many more.
To find someone on WhatsApp without a phone number, all you have to do is write down the country code with a plus and then a mobile operator followed by the 11 digits and it should look like this.
Replace the X’s with any random numbers and proceed to message them.
Start Messaging The Generated Numbers
Now you have been able to generate many numbers, and now is the time to start messaging the numbers and have a chat with them.

Things To Note When Making Friends On WhatsApp
- Don’t overdo things: when you start generating numbers to chat with them, please make sure not to spam many people as they can report you toWhatsApp, and WhatsApp will block your number.
- When you message someone, let them know your intentions for messaging them. If they let you know they are not interested, please move on and try another number.
- Not every number is on WhatsApp: same as how not everybody in your country is using WhatsApp, it is the same for every country, that is why I advise you try messaging them first to see if the number is on WhatsApp or not.
