How To Know If Someone Saved Your Number On WhatsApp

By Pranab Sen

✎ Key Points:

» You can tell if someone saved your number on WhatsApp by checking their profile picture, though this can be unreliable due to public photo settings.
» You have to check their profile photo and status, even if your contact is not saved, to gather details and confirm if your number is saved.
» If you’re blocked, you won’t see the profile picture, making it a potential indicator; however, relying solely on this may lead to confusion, as some users keep their photos public.

How To Know If Someone Saved Your Number On WhatsApp:

There are some ways to tell if someone has saved your number in his contact list:

1. Check From the DP

WhatsApp has developed a new feature where a person can maintain their privacy by not showing their profile picture to anyone or only their contacts. This feature on WhatsApp is known as Profile Picture privacy settings.

If you are curious to know if your friends or loved ones have saved your contact on WhatsApp, go through this method.

Here are a few tips given by our experts when it comes to checking DP visibility.

🔯 Verify If DP is Visible from Another Phone:

To ensure that a suspect’s profile picture is visible to all, save that number on any mobile phone that has never saved the target’s number or does not have the target’s number on the phone. 

By doing this, you will get two conclusions in front of you, whether the DP will be visible on the other phone or not.

🏷 The Outcomes:

If the DP is visible from your phone but not from the alternate phone, then understand that your number has already been saved. That way, you can guess that the profile picture is set to My Contacts privacy instead of the Everyone option.

From Method

Behind the keeping everyone option, people are fond of showing their dip to everyone, but in my contacts, only those people who are on the contact list will see the profile picture. If the profile picture is visible on both devices, it does not confirm that your number has been saved.

2. Check by Uploading Status

Another best way to make sure is to check the upload status, if your status and stories will be shown by him/her it means your number has been added to their contact list.

Uploading Status

Here are some steps to do when it comes to using this method:

🔯 First, Upload the Status from Your Phone:

Post any video status or picture on WhatsApp, whatever you want your loved one or friend to see.

🏷 The Outcomes:

The uploaded status is not necessarily visible to him/her immediately. Whenever you see his name on the viewers’ list, understand that that person has saved your number.

If not then this doesn’t mean she/he has not saved your contact as maybe they are not available to view your status rather you may try numerous times to try this method.

Overall, you also have to be patient. Sometimes the status is seen even a little before the completion of 24 hours, then there is the possibility that you missed his/her name from the list.

3. Create a WhatsApp Group

Also, you can create a WhatsApp group and add a person to that group. If the person can see your name & number in the group, they have likely saved your number.

However, remember that some people may have set their privacy settings not to allow their names to be visible in group chats.

4. Check Last seen status

If you can see the person’s last seen status, it could be a sign that they have saved your number. However, this could also mean that they have allowed their last seen status to be visible to all contacts, this is how you can know if someone has saved your number.

5. Send Him a Message

Now, if you have the person’s number saved on your phone, you can send them a WhatsApp message. If the message is delivered and read, it could be a sign that they have your number saved.

However, not receiving a response does not necessarily mean that they haven’t saved your number, as they may have simply not seen your message or chosen not to respond.

6. Check the About section

If the person has filled out their About section, it may contain information about you that indicates they have saved your number.

However, some people may not fill out their About section or may not include information about you even if they have saved your number.

How To See How Someone Saved Your Number On WhatsApp:

There is no direct way, but with a few settings, you can easily guess how your name appears on their contact list.

Stage 1: Open WhatsApp on your device and tap on the three dots shown at the top right of the corner.

Stage 2: Select New Broadcast and add the suspect’s contact with another user whose number is already saved on his/her device.

Stage 3: Next, send a message to the broadcast list.

Stage 4: Once the text is delivered, tap and long-press the text you have delivered and tap on the notification option.

Stage 5: Two sections named Delivered by and Read by will appear on the screen of mobile.

Stage 6: If she saved your mobile number, you can see her name in this section.

If the name does not appear in this section, it will be understood that she has not saved your number.

Would you get a ‘Delivered’ tag on Messages if your number is not saved?

Whether your number is saved or not, you will see the sent or delivered tag when you send the message. In addition, you will also see the last information regarding the suspect, even if your number is not saved.

There will be a double tick showing when the message is delivered to the inbox, but it will turn blue depending on whether the user whether the message opened or not.
