Virtual number for WhatsApp
You want to create a second WhatsApp account for your business or to protect your privacy? The Blacktel virtual phone will provide you with the necessary tools.
With the virtual numbers from Blacktel.io, you can set up multiple WhatsApp accounts all around the world.
How to verify WhatsApp with a virtual number?
Open WhatsApp and enter the virtual number you added in your Blacktel virtual phone
Log in to Blacktel with your account that contains the virtual number. Be sure that your virtual phone is active and you are able to receive calls to your virtual number.
Do not use the App and Browser simultaneously to receive calls
It may not work to get a SMS from WhatsApp with the verification code, so you have to wait until you can click on "call me".
You get a call from WhatsApp to the entered virtual number which will tell you the verification code.
Answer the call in your virtual phone and write down the verification code for WhatsApp.
We recommend to write down your WhatsApp code on a piece of paper
With Whats SIM
numbers you get a mailbox with auto record by default. So you don't need to answer your call by yourself.
Enter the verification code you received in WhatsApp.
Now you are fully verified to WhatsApp with a Blacktel virtual number.
How many WhatsApp accounts can I have?
In general, there is no maximum limit. Each virtual number can create a WhatsApp account.
Depending on your user level, you can add multiple numbers in your account.
I did not receive my WhatsApp verification code?
Make sure that your virtual number is enabled for incoming calls and SMS
Change the verification process from SMS to a phone call
Make sure to have a small amount of credits in your account to receive the incoming WhatsApp call
Make sure you logged in to your Blacktel virtual phone and that your Browser or App can receive calls.
To receive calls in your browser, we recommend to use the Chrome Browser and allow Blacktel to use your microphone and speakers.
To receive calls in the App (iOS, Android), we recommend to enable push notifications for SMS and calls
Do not set up the forwarding option to another phone number in the virtual number settings
Wait until the WhatsApp progress bar is finished then try again. If you have already tried it a couple of times, please wait up to one hour.
If you enabled a mailbox it may take some minutes to record your call. If your Blacktel finished recording, you can listen to your call in your dashboard or call activity.
Mailbox with auto record
Blacktel virtual numbers
enables a mailbox and auto recording feature by default, so you can easily listen to the verification call.
On Trash SIM you can disable the mailbox and answer your incoming calls by your own. For other services, except Whats SIM,
you can enable the mailbox with auto recording feature and many more by yourself in the settings of your virtual number.
What about other services?
For all registrations with third party services, we recommend to use virtual numbers with a service that enables inbound calls and SMS.
As you may know already, we cannot guarantee a successful verification from third party services with any of our virtual numbers,
as we do not have any access to nor information of third party services.
We recommend to simply change the verification process by third parties from SMS to a phone call.
Can I delete my number after WhatsApp registration?
We highly recommend to keep your virtual number active in Blacktel!
The WhatsApp platform will ask you for a new code if you want to move from your mobile to another.
You can also lose all of your conversations and history at any time, when your WhatsApp virtual number is not active in Blacktel.
You can set the subscription plan for your WhatsApp number to keep it easily active.
Note: You always need enough credits in your account to automatically renew your WhatsApp number.
If you don't have enough credits, your virtual number gets deleted anyway.
