General Knowledge

A simvacy phone number is a dedicated phone number that is generally used to protect the user’s privacy. Simvacy numbers forward calls or text to the user’s private number hiding the real user’s phone number

Today there a lot of websites that require SMS/phone verification when you try to sign up.  Simvacy helps you bypassing these steps. Our service can help you to secure yourself from scammers by using our Simvacy phone numbers for receiving SMS. Another option is that you can register accounts on websites that do not support your country.

Giving your contact information to each one you meet isn’t a smart idea. A Simvacy number adds a layer of confidentiality.

 

Many web services, social media platforms, and apps require a phone number when you try to sign up. But if you do not want to give them your private phone number then Simvacy will be perfect for you. Verifying or activating your accounts is very easy with our Simvacy numbers. So you are not forced to provide them your personal information. 

Many companies are now using WhatsApp business to communicate with their coworkers and clients alike. This application allows users to contact their clients on WhatsApp. Communicating with clients is now just as simple as sending a quick WhatsApp message. However, WhatsApp Business allows you to separate your business messages from your personal messages, which helps manage conversations with your clients. You can take full advantage of this business application by also using a Simvacy phone number.

 

Your business will now be able to send relevant, personalized, and quick messages about your services to your clients. These messages could include the status of their order, appointment reminders, or event reminders. It also allows you to quickly respond to any customer questions or concerns. If you are able to answer in less than 24 hours, the service is free. Otherwise, there are additional costs. WhatsApp Business allows you to create a business profile, including your location, website link, hours of operation, and more. This allows your company to have a professional image when contacting clients through the app.

 

However, with WhatsApp business, you cannot use a phone number that you have previously used on the app. This means you are required to register a new phone number if you wish to use the service while keeping your old WhatsApp account active.

 

Typically, your average phone line is linked to a SIM card. Even if you use two different SIM cards on one device, WhatsApp will not allow you to use both regular WhatsApp and WhatsApp Business simultaneously.

 

Because of this, the best option would be registering a second phone number for WhatsApp Business. Using our Simvacy phone number will work the same way as a regular phone number, however, no phone purchases are required. 

In short, no. WhatsApp only allows one number to be verified at a time. There are, however, workarounds to this. If you want to keep your WhatsApp account with your personal number and use Simvacy on a new WhatsApp profile there are two ways you can do this;

  1. Download WhatsApp Business from the app store on your phone. It’s free and doesn’t require you to be an operating business. Follow the same steps for verification as you normally would and you now have both your private WhatsApp and a new WhatsApp Business app linked to your Simvacy number.

  2. On some android devices, you can use the “duplicate apps” feature. This will duplicate any app you have downloaded and WhatsApp is no exception. Search for “duplicate apps” in your phone’s settings and follow the on-screen instructions. Once you have duplicated WhatsApp you can then verify using your Simvacy number.

The Change Number feature via the settings on WhatsApp allows you to change your phone number linked to your WhatsApp account. WhatsApp also informs all your contacts what your new Simvacy number is so you don’t have to go through any hassle of messaging your contacts individually. Additionally, if you don’t want to share your new Simvacy number with everyone, you can create a customized list of your preferred contacts.

 

Conveniently, using the Change Number feature in WhatsApp will migrate your profile information, groups, and settings from your old phone number to your Simvacy number. For privacy, it will also delete the account linked with your personal number, meaning your contacts can no longer see your personal number in their WhatsApp contact list.

 

Finally, and what makes it so pain-free to use Simvacy; when you change your number and continue using the same phone with your Simvacy number, your chat history will continue to be available on your phone.

When you go through the Change Number feature in WhatsApp settings, you can choose whether you want your contacts to be notified about your phone number change. Your group chats will be notified when you change your phone number regardless of whether you choose to notify your contacts. This is done automatically and instantly.

Call forwarding immediately redirects calls from your Simvacy number to a number of your choosing, such as your personal mobile number. Call forwarding is important so you can verify your WhatsApp, Telegram or WeChat accounts – see our Getting Started section for more help here. Once you are verified, however, you can turn off the call forwarding option by removing the number you entered in your dashboard.

Good news, turning on call forwarding is very straightforward. Once you have chosen your number and gone through the checkout you will receive a confirmation email from us. Here you’ll find a link to your dashboard where you can manage your number/s and add a call forwarding number. As soon as you hit save your Simvacy number will activate and call forwarding will be turned on.

We highly recommend keeping your Simvacy number active!

 

The WhatsApp platform will ask you for a new code if you want to move from your mobile to another. You can also lose all of your conversations and history at any time when your Simvacy number is not active. 

No. Currently, our service offers call forwarding for inbound calls only.

You can have as many phone numbers as you want under your Simvacy numbers account. 

When Registering a New Account

When registering a new account, SMS from Telegram may not come for the following reasons:

 

  • You are often asked for an activation code. For example, there was a delay in the arrival of SMS from Telegram and you, without waiting, make several new requests in a short period of time. The message “Too fast” may appear. The messenger may perceive this as suspicious activity and not respond to your requests. Solution: do not rush, wait a couple of minutes and try to request the code again via SMS.

 

  • The mobile operator may perceive the Telegram code as spam. In this case, the message with this code may not come at all. Solution: use the code to call the phone. If this method does not solve the problem, then you will have to contact Telegram technical support, as well as contact the mobile operator.

 

  • In case of unstable mobile communication and various failures from the mobile operator, the SMS code may also not come. Solution: check the coverage level, or restart your smartphone, perhaps after restarting you will receive a belated SMS with a code. As a last resort, contact your mobile operator.

 

  • Also, problems with SMS can arise due to problems with the Telegram application itself. Solution: make sure you downloaded the official Telegram app from reliable sources: Google Play Store. AppStore or the official Telegram website. If you still downloaded the official application, but the SMS code does not come, then you will have to contact Telegram technical support.
