About safely communicating with WhatsApp support
When you contact us with a question, WhatsApp Support may communicate with you over email or in a chat thread.
When you connect with WhatsApp Support over email, we will get back to you with an email response. WhatsApp Support will only contact you from email addresses ending in @support.whatsapp.com or @in.whatsapp.com.
When you connect with WhatsApp Support in a chat thread, we will only message you from our official WhatsApp Support account, which is marked with the verified green checkmark and uses phone numbers starting with +1-5517868. Chat threads with WhatsApp Support will automatically close after the issue is resolved.
If you receive a message without the green checkmark or from a phone number starting with a different number that claims to be WhatsApp, this is likely a scam. Please do not reply and please report or block this number.
There are certain pieces of information WhatsApp will never ask you. These include: sensitive personal information, your full name, PIN, or payment details.
