How do I delete a contact?

To delete a contact:

  1. Go to WhatsApp > Contacts.
  2. Tap on the name for the contact you want to remove and tap Edit in the top right corner.
  3. Scroll all the way to the bottom of the Contact Info screen.
  4. Tap Delete Contact.

The contacts that you see in WhatsApp come from your iPhone's Contacts app. Please note that when you delete a contact from WhatsApp, this will also delete the contact from your iPhone's Contacts app.

Deleting a contact from your Contacts app will not delete any chat history you have with that contact. Learn how to delete a chat from this FAQ: How do I delete messages or chats?
