I know all the the numbers and I need to create a new group, but I do not want that all the members are able to know each other's numbers.

Is it possible to create a group in WhatsApp where the telephone number is not shared between the users?

  • Isn't WhatsApp a smartphone-only app? I don't believe there's an accessible web app a person can use. (They've a site, of course, and links to the various app stores, but I don't see a place where one can log in.) – ale Aug 13 '15 at 21:11

    I'm voting to close this question as off-topic because WhatsApp is not a Web Application. – ale Aug 13 '15 at 21:13

    @AlE. Actually there is a web app for WhatsApp -> web.whatsapp.com – Rubén Aug 14 '15 at 11:37
  • @Rubén: Is this functionality available through the web app? – ale May 29 '18 at 18:57
  • @ale: It's possible to create a new group from the web app but I don't know if it's possible to hide the phone numbers to the group members. – Rubén May 29 '18 at 19:21

Not possible.

The number of a person is the most basic thing that gets shared in WhatsApp, and it might be the only thing you would know about a person.

There are other messengers who work differently, which your public name or username are the basic information that gets shared rather than your phone number. For example, Telegram.
