  • Click on WhatsApp
  • Toggle off Contacts
  • Open WhatsApp and click on the compose icon on the top right
  • Enter the phone number of the person you want to message and start chatting

Note that, the above option works when you have revoked WhatsApp’s access to your address book. Thus, it would not display your contacts with a WhatsApp account. It will simply show you a box to enter a phone number to start chatting.

If you do not give access to WhastApp, you would be able to see people’s status updates or stories and will also face difficulty in contacting people on your address book. Thus, once you are done sending messages to an unsaved contact, turn the toggle switch on for Contacts.
