WhatsApp is a popular free messaging service used by millions of people worldwide. To use WhatsApp, users must register their phone number to receive a verification code and activate the account. While there is no one-size-fits-all way to avoid the verification code, it is possible to create a toll-free and alternate phone number to complete the activation process. This can come in handy if you don't have a smartphone or if you don't want to use your number for WhatsApp. This article will show you how to activate WhatsApp without a mobile number on an iOS or Android device and how to activate it without a phone on a computer running Windows.
