WhatsApp is a popular messaging service and is used by billions of people all over the world. Whatsapp allows you to send and receive messages irrespective on the platform you are at — Android, iOS as well as on the computer.
Have you ever wondered whether you can send a WhatsApp message to yourself? Well, the answer is yes, you can. Here is a fun way by which you can take down notes or to-do list on Whatsapp itself, thus reducing the need to download a separate note-taking app.
By creating your profile link
This is one of the easiest methods to send Whatsapp messages to yourself. Here, you will create a link of your profile, and through that, you can chat with yourself. To create the link, you will have to type the following code, either in your friend’s message box or on a group — https://wa.me/<yournumber>. This is the Click to chat feature of Whatsapp where the users can click on the link and chat.
However, there are some points that you have to remember.
- Your phone number must be registered on WhatsApp.
- You should omit some characters such as zeros prefixed on area codes, brackets, plus sign as well as dashes.
So, let us say that your country code is +91 and your number is 9999999999, the code that you will write should look something like — https://wa.me/919999999999. Note that I have omitted the plus sign before the country code.
Once you are done with the code, hit send. Now, click on the code to send Whatsapp messages to yourself.
If you want to keep the link private and hidden, then you can make a group on WhatsApp with a minimum of one more contact besides yourself. After that, you can remove the other person and then type the link. Also, note that your name will not be visible on the WhatsApp contact link. However, your profile picture, as well as phone number, will be displayed. Check the screenshot above to get an idea.
If you’re worried that your chat with self will go down in the chat window of Whatsapp, it’s recommended to pin the chat with yourself to the top of the Whatsapp app. All you need to do is long-press on your number and tap on the Pin icon at the top. Check the screenshot below for reference. Hope the article helped. We have covered more such tutorials on Whatsapp and other messaging services which you can check out on out Tech Basic section.
