WhatsApp channels - is your phone number visible to admins?

If you're a WhatsApp user and part of various channels, you may wonder if your phone number is visible to the channel admins. It's important to understand how your privacy is protected within these channels. In this article, we'll explore whether or not your phone number is visible to admins.

To find out, let's take a look at the profile privacy settings within WhatsApp. By tapping on the profile privacy option, you can see that your phone number is protected. This means that in most cases, admins cannot see your full phone number unless they have saved you as a contact.

For instance, let's say you're browsing the channels directory and decide to follow a popular channel like Bad Bunny. You might wonder if the admin of that channel can see your phone number and potentially access your private information. According to WhatsApp, your phone number remains protected. Admins cannot see your full phone number unless they have saved you as a contact.

However, it's worth noting that if you are friends with an admin and have them saved as a contact in your WhatsApp, they will be able to see all the information associated with your account. This includes your phone number, profile name, and profile photo. It's important to be mindful of your contacts and ensure that you trust the individuals who have access to this information.

If privacy is a concern, you have the option to change your profile name and profile photo. This allows you to control what admins and other contacts can view in your WhatsApp profile.

In conclusion, while your phone number is generally protected from WhatsApp channel admins, it's crucial to exercise caution and be mindful of who you have saved as contacts. By managing your contacts wisely and adjusting your profile settings, you can ensure a level of privacy within your WhatsApp account.

Thank you for watching, and I hope this information has been helpful. Stay tuned for more tech updates. See you next time!
