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!

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.
