WhatsApp May Soon Allow Users To Create Unique Usernames, Making The App More Secure And Convenient

WhatsApp testing username feature on iOS app, according to WABetaInfo

According to WABetaInfo, WhatsApp is now testing the username feature on the iOS app. The feature was first seen in the latest WhatsApp beta for the iOS update, which is available on the TestFlight app.

WhatsApp usernames will be unique, optional and conceal phone numbers, according to a report. This means that users can choose a unique username for their WhatsApp account, which will be displayed to other users instead of their phone number. Phone numbers will only be revealed to other users if they are already in each other's contacts.

WhatsApp usernames will make it possible to communicate with any user, whether they are an individual or a business, according to a report. This will expand contact options for users, allowing them to connect with a wider range of people.
