- Users could access this service through a new mobile app upgrade.

- It will only be offered to specific companies.
Since WhatsApp is still one of the most popular mobile applications in the world, the number of mobile numbers is capitalized. Given this, some companies may want to collect this information for profit.
Even though WhatsApp has had a business edition available since 2018, you as a user might not want a company to know your mobile number. If so, the instant messaging application is already developing a new feature that will allow you to limit this amount. We’ll explain what happens next.
Sometimes it surprises us that companies call us with offers when we never gave them our cell phone number.
It can even be intrusive and annoying. I could provide you with information about a business having your cell phone number through WhatsApp if you decide you no longer want this type of communication and, more importantly, if you want to know if a business has it.
Users could access this service through a new mobile app beta upgrade for Android smartphones. The version is 18.104.22.168, according to WABetaInfo. Due to in-app conversions, among other things, it aims to notify users when a company or business has our mobile number.
The website says this service would be available when users click on ads that take them to WhatsApp chats.
With this potential new feature, WhatsApp wants you to locate those previous conversations.
In any case, it will be up to each individual to decide whether they wish to voluntarily reveal their telephone number.
Users will also have the option to check whether or not businesses can see their phone number, which is another feature. By selecting the contact details of the company, they can find out more about it.
It’s crucial to remember that this recently revealed feature is still in development and will only be offered to specific businesses, so it’s not yet available on WhatsApp.
