Hello,

I want to remove myself from friend's list and be unable to be added back. Is something like this possible without changing my mobile phone number?

Thanks

System Configuration: Android / Chrome 91.0.4472.120

Hi,

The best way is to block that person so that they will be unable to text or call you, even if you're still in their contact list.

But then this person will know that I blocked her because I usually respond. I want to make it look like I no longer have Whatsapp account.

It is not possible to trick someone to believe that you don't have a WhatsApp account without deleting it or changing your number.

If I remove account and make new account without changing phone number it won't solve the problem?

No because your phone number will remain registered in that person's contact list. Therefore, your account will appear as soon as you reactivate it.
