In the year 2024, everybody knows about WhatsApp. If you don’t know by now, WhatsApp is a messaging service where you can send unlimited messages free of charge. This is different from SMS or MMS texting that can be limited by a data plan. This has made WhatsApp very popular among people who do not have unlimited texting plans, people messaging internationally, or people avoiding roaming charges. In general, it has become the universal way to text across the world, with nearly 3 billion users worldwide.

Undoubtedly, WhatsApp is a powerful free tool, but an unfortunate part of WhatsApp is that to use the app, you need a phone number to register. This is counter-intuitive to WhatsApp’s goal to provide users to text for free.

At Textverified, we want to give users control over their online privacy and allow users to register for WhatsApp without even having a phone plan. Today we’ll show you how to register for a WhatsApp number using a Textverified one-time verification.
