WhatsApp Messages from People I Don’t Know with Foreign Phone Numbers

DIDX CTO Kamal Panhwar explains, “Phone numbers are available in different directories and sometimes such information is revealed. There are many companies that spam their messages on Whatsapp numbers. If I have a Google Voice number (always a +1 US number), I can set it up as my WhatsApp number and send someone messages that way. This is true no matter where I am in the world. Now the person who receives my messages, that person has the option to report any of those messages to Whatsapp… as spam. Once the receiver reports this, it is up to Whatsapp to deactivate my number.

mapping virtual numbers to whatsapp“It is easy also if I buy a DID number from, for example:

http://www.tossabledigits.com/http://virtualphoneline.com or https://callhippo.com/virtual-phone-number and if that number is SMS-capable, then I can set up a software on my computer that will connect to Whatsapp server to register my virtual number. I will get an SMS on the portal of a virtual phone number provider such as the three above, and then I can confirm my API and get the password. If I have these kinds of numbers, I can broadcast Whatsapp numbers until someone reports my number, and WhatsApp blocks my number. WhatsApp does not allow such actions, and they are lightning fast in blocking the numbers that are not complying with their rules of use.

“At the same, there are some libraries in PHP that can still connect*. Hope I am clear. I welcome comments and requests for more information. I actually ran several tests in the past week to make sure the information I am sharing is correct.”

*This means there are some open source PHP libraries which can connect, but the programmer is not updating them to the latest version. For some professional people, these libraries can connect and send a message to WhatsApp, and others can’t.
