Hello,

I was using my old number for whatsapp. However they gave it to new person, so when the person tried to claim my old whatsapp, system kickedme out and I signed up with my current number.

Now because I didn't go through the official "change number" function within whatsapp, I am forcefully kicked out of every whatsapp group, and no one knows I have changed to a new number.

Is there a way to go around it, claim and sign up into the old groups and notify my whatsapp list to message to this new number?

Thanks!





System Configuration: Macintosh / Chrome 102.0.0.0

Hi,

Try contacting the new owner of your previous phone number. Explain them your situation, then they should be able to access your previous groups and send a message informing that you've changed your phone number.

Alternatively, ask someone you know on WhatsApp that have access to the same groups as yours to inform them.

Good luck.
