We are all on social media now and finding any contact on Facebook, Instagram or Twitter is quite simple; you write the name, look for mutual friends, look for photos where this person may have been tagged and so on. These tricks are simple and intuitive enough for anyone involved with social media.
But here’s a more difficult question: Is it possible to find someone on WhatsApp without having the number?
It is not so obvious and in fact if you think about it it seems a bit more complicated process. WhatsApp is not really a traditional social network, on the contrary, it is a messaging platform where you tend to add someone who has given you their number in person.
What if you want to add someone you don’t know? So here’s a simple trick to solve this impasse and reach the goal.
What you need to do is download the TrueCaller app. This application has a very low cost of € 1.99 per month, but it contains a huge telephone database. The equivalent of the old Yellow Pages, but for smartphones. What you need to know, however, is that by logging into this app your number will also enter the list (not that there is something so strange, also because many companies use it, but surely you will be more exposed).
Extra: The other even easier way to look up someone’s number is to type their first and last name in Google followed by “phone number”. This often works too.
