We are going to teach you step by step how to create a WhatsApp account because, although it may seem very simple, there may be some users who are not quite sure how the process is carried out. It’s pretty straightforward and you only need a phone number.
So let’s see how to create a whatsapp account from scratch, a process that will take you no more than 10 minutes and will allow you to configure your account until you decide to close it yourself.
First of all, download WhatsApp
We are going to create the WhatsApp account on our Android phone, so we need to download the app from the phone. Although you can download WhatsApp from various portals, We strongly recommend that you do this from the Google Play Store.
So you guarantee to have the latest stable version with no beta or anything like that. You just need to search “WhatsApp” in the Play Store and download it. It is necessary that you have a mobile with Android 4.1 or higher, the size of the app may vary depending on the device we are using.
Set up WhatsApp for the first time
When we have to do it for the first time when opening WhatsApp, it is Accept private policyotherwise we will not be able to use it. Once we click on “Accept and continue”, it will be necessary for us to enter our phone number.
The SMS verification message will arrive at the phone number you register, so it is convenient to use WhatsApp on a mobile with SIM, or to have a device with said SIM nearby
The two digits on the left correspond to the prefix for your country, +34 in the case of Europe. Once you have entered your phone number (required to create your WhatsApp account, you will need to agree to this number being verified by SMS. This SMS will contain the verification code that it will ask you.
In case the SMS did not reach you, something that can happen, you can click on “resend SMS”. If it still does not arrive, you can ask to be called. A robot will call you and repeat the number over and over, so you can type it into the verification window.
Configure your master data
Once you have verified your phone number, you will need to put in a profile picture and a name. You can use your phone’s camera to do this right now or add it directly from your gallery.
This data is what your contacts will see (although you can still hide your profile picture and other data) for maximum privacy in the app.
You can now start using WhatsApp
Once you have configured your phone number to activate the account, picture and name, you can now use whatsapp. When you open it, it will be completely empty, but in the “ start a chat ” section, the contacts that you have on the SIM card will appear as long as they have a WhatsApp account, so that you can chat with them.
