How WhatsApp contact number can change



  • After a phone was robbed, a friend told that in his contacts, the owner was with a different number, and the picture of someone else.

    But, it was the only person that noticed such change.

    Is it possible that this weird different person be the phone robber?

    Why would WhatsApp update the contact from just one person?

    Maybe, but that's not very important, IMO.

    Just use your new SIM to deactivate the account on the old phone. If your phone has bricking function, just turn it into brick then. Since the phone is robbed I think there is little chance to reclaim the phone.
