whatsapp contacts not showing up and seeing numbers instead of contacts' names

Nov 22, 2021

If your contacts' numbers are shown instead of their names, you might need to reset the WhatsApp sync with your contacts. To do so:

  1. Open your phone's Settings, then tap Users & accounts > WhatsApp.
  3. Open WhatsApp, then tap the new chat icon > More options

> Refresh.

If the steps above don't work, it's possible that your phone's settings might be preventing WhatsApp from functioning properly. If so, please try the following:

Open your phone's Settings, then tap Apps & notifications > WhatsApp > Permissions. Make sure all permissions are turned on.

If the issue still isn't fixed, please contact your phone's manufacturer for more information regarding security permissions on your phone.
